- Our next meeting is Tuesday, October 11th, in McBryde 322 from 7 to 9 pm! Professor Holly Jordan will be giving a presentation entitled “Who or What is God,” which explores our fascination with focusing on God as a way of defining religions. Tracing the lineage of the study of religion in the West, she explains the benefits and challenges of using God to categorize different religions. Dr. Jordan is a visiting Assistant Professor of Religion at Roanoke College whose areas of research include comparative religion and politics, grounded primarily in the Middle East and North America.
- We are hosting a potluck cookout this Thursday, October 6th, from 6 to 8 pm in the Prairie Quad (Pritchard/Lee/O’Shag quad)! Hamburgers, hot dogs, and veggie burgers will be provided, but please feel free to bring a dish and/or drinks! See the link to the sign-up sheet above if you plan on bringing any items!
- We hold business meetings every Tuesday before the general meeting from around 5:30 to the start of the meeting in the same room (McBryde 322). This is a great opportunity to share any feedback or ideas you may have with the club’s executive members!
