The Voltaire Society

The Voltaire Society is a club sponsored by the Honors Program and run by Honors students. Named after the cantankerous French philosopher, 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 Maggie Sava or Bryce Anderson-Gregson  Activities include, but are not limited to:

  • Broomball Team - you know who you are!
  • Speaker Series - Invite Your Profession
  • Game Night
  • Film Series 
  • Halloween event
  • Dining Out for Life

This Fall Voltaire started with a September Rockies game.  The Film Series is devoted to the Coen Brothers films, beginning with The Big Lebowski on October 23.  For Halloween, it's Psycho with the Colorado Symphony.  Lots is planned for the rest of the year, so stay tuned, and contact Voltaire for more information.
