The book group conducts several activities, such as:
organizing extracurricular reading and discussion groups related to history
organizing groups to attend movies with a history interest together
organizing groups to watch videos with a history interest together
In the past, students have decided to have dinner or refreshments together as part of their group activity. It is possible to obtain funds from the Department of History for this purpose.
Dr. Richard Ugland, the Department's Academic Program Coordinator is the faculty adviser for the Zeta Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta and thus serves as faculty and departmental sponsor for the History Club.
