History Activities Outside the Classroom
Mount Mary University offers many student clubs and organizations for you to participate in, including two organizations specifically for history students.
This student organization is open to all students who have an interest in history. As a member, you’ll play an active role in determining the club’s activities and can participate in discussions and presentations. Meetings center on learning and enjoying new aspects of history while developing an appreciation for other people, times and places.
Contact Julie Tatlock, faculty adviser, to join the club.
