The Clio Society of the Department of History at The Ohio State University

The Clio Society are friends of the History Department at The Ohio State University.  Some of us are current and former students of the university; some of us earned degrees in history; others are current and former faculty members of the department; some of us have an interest in the History Department and its continued growth in excellence; and all of us love to read and talk about history.  We range in ages from 18 to 88 and from history specialists to business people, lawyers, and other professionals who never lost their interest in history.

If you liked history as an undergrad, then you are going to love it now.
