The Saint Louis University Philosophy Club

Check out the Philosophy Department's

The Saint Louis University Philosophy Club is dedicated to providing stimulating and accessible philosophical discussions for SLU undergraduates with the hope of increasing interest in philosophy across campus, helping philosophy students pursue post-graduate interests, and having a good time!

The Club meets every Thursday at 6pm in Adorjan 142 and has quickly become one of the fast-growing organizations at SLU.

An up to date list of our events is always available on the "Upcoming Events" section of this page, and if you have any questions, please contact us by e-mail at Also, you can visit us on Facebook.
