History Club Spreading Knowledge, Podcast Planned

By Josh Thompson

Here at the University of Jamestown, we have an organization known as the History Club.

This organization is comprised of a group of enthusiastic students who are passionate about learning our world’s history and having thoughtful discussions about its effects on the current world. A few examples of the topics that have been discussed are societal life during the 1900’s, religious development in the early United States, and even a discussion on historical technologies used in warfare.

However, when it comes to the History Club, the topics are endless.

On the other hand, the History Club is not only about discussing historical events with fellow history enthusiasts. One goal of the History Club is to spread the knowledge of fascinating events from the past to entertain and inform the public. Keep an eye out for the club’s information booths during major college events!

Lastly, the History Club also plans field trips around the state to help expand their knowledge about the history that is present all around us.

What makes the History Club so special? Is it the fascinating topics discussed in each meeting? Perhaps it is the fields trips and research projects that the club enjoys doing. Regardless of which era of history you are excited about, the History Club has something for everyone who finds history fascinating.

Recently, the History Club had set up an information booth at the Homecoming Street Fair here on campus to show off the amazing history of Jamestown’s campus. They had brochures of old building projects, photos of campus from the early days, and even some background history on the buildings the college students use every day! The members of History Club are always enthusiastic about history.

That is why any history buffs out there should keep an eye out for the newest addition to the History Club…The UJ History Buffs Podcast! This podcast is scheduled to start next semester and will include topics such as the origins of the University of Jamestown, global history, and more!

Be sure to tune in and be amazed.
