The Voltaire Society

The Voltaire Society is a club sponsored by the Honors Program but run by Honors students. Named after the cantankerous French philosophe, the Voltaire Society sponsors a number of social, cultural, and intellectual events each quarter which help you to "unleash your inner nerd."  The current list of events is below.  If you have ideas and would like to help plan Voltaire's events, please contact Shawn Alfrey or student organizers Ethan Draper, Nick Rossiter, or Maggie Sava.  Activities include, but are not limited to:

  • Broomball Team - you know who you are!
  • Speaker Series - Invite Your Profession
  • Game Night
  • Film Series -  in recognition of the Centennial of WWI - WWI movies
  • Halloween event?
