Projects & Programs

Departmental organizations and events bring our students and faculty together and foster friendships, mentoring, and connections outside the university. The Phi Alpha Theta honors society hosts coffee breaks, travel to historic sites, holiday parties, and book sales. The Food Past/Food Future event features faculty cooking for students, and every year prominent historians visit our department to lecture and share meals and informal conversation with students. An end-of the-year banquet celebrates student success.
