Philosophy club encourages students to join

The ASU Philosophy Club is cur­rently looking for more students to join their organization.

Dr. Susana Badiola, faculty advis­er for the club, has been involved with the student organization since its inception in 2006.

“The club has always been up and down throughout the semesters,” Badiola said. “Sometimes, we would have meetings and probably 20 people would show up. Then we’d have times when students would graduate and only about four students would show up.”

She said many members graduat­ed in May and the remaining members are currently trying to bring the club back to life.

Badiola said the club is a space for students to think out loud and discuss dif­ferent topics with each other.

The club meets once a week at Star­bucks to discuss a weekly topic.

“You don’t have to know anything about the topic,” she said. “You can just show up and listen and have an interesting conversation.”

She said the club also goes to a phi­losophy conference once a year, usually in the spring.

“That is another opportunity for students to see how philosophy is done and to be with other people who share the same passion,” she said.

In addition to their weekly meetings and the philosophy conference, the club takes part in other activities, such as watch­ing and discussing movies or going to an escape room.

“In the past, we’ve done a lot of dif­ferent things,” Badiola said. “It really just de­pends on the ideas the students have when they’re engaged.”
