Philosophy Club

The VW Philosophy Club exists to provide a forum for its members to discuss and exchange philosophical idea's about life's most important questions. We hold meetings twice a month on Wednesdays and Thursdays in room S307 in the Student Life Center. The next one will be next Thursday, October 30 and the topic will be: "What is happiness?" Interested students need only show up and we will add them to the philosophy club's Blackboard site to receive important emails, readings/videos related to the meeting topics, meeting schedules, and more. Anyone interested can contact me via email at abb26466@email.vccs.edu, or our program supervisor, Ivan Guajardo, at iguajardo@virginiawestern.edu for answers to questions pertaining to the club.
