What are general meetings all about?

  • Consult the Admiral’s Minutes in the Philomathean Minute Book: “We arrived, we saw, we spoke, we laughed, we cried, we debated, we whispered, we yelled, we painted, we poeticized, we sang, we joked, we punned, we cringed, we listened, we learned, we slept, we imbibed, we danced, we motioned, we passed, we appointed, we rhymed, we censored, we adjourned. In short, we had a Philo Meeting.”
  • Or, better yet, stop by the 4th floor of the College Hall and see for yourself. Like all Philo events, our meetings are open to everyone. Check the calendar to find out when our next meeting will be held.
