So I am going to meet with the Undergraduate Director of the History Department to discuss officially forming a History Club. The thread's title is what the official name has to be. So YAYYYYYYYYY!

OMG! OMG! OMG! So I met the undergraduate director and she just got the job. And guess what? One of her goals was to create a History Club! I have assurances of full faculty support, usage of pretty much any room in an entire Hall! We also discussed having sims, discussions, films, online material, JEOPARDY! (in fact that was one of her top ideas since the Geography Department hosts one annually). YAYYYYYYYYYYY! Oh and anyone at any other college on this forum if you start a History Club we are willing to interact.

Whatever happened to Jeopardy at East? That was a really cool idea.

I remember you saying the final question was impossible but you never told any of us what it was.

If I had the massive folder I would tell you, but it is in Wisconsin. It was very hard. And the idea died because the Social Studies Department epically failed at giving us help

Dedication is writing me a page on what you would bring to the table as Secretary. The other nominee better be amazing, because holy crap that is a hard act to follow.

So yea, History Club is recruiting officers AND we are doing all the things I've always wanted to have with the high school version: an actual budget, partnerships with other clubs, and faculty support. YAY!!!! History Club begins September 16th. Good luck to all this year at East!

Not true. The Browns are the epitome of terrible. Plus they traded their only half decent player today.

That's more than double the amount of people that will be in attendance for the final Bills home game of the season!

That's more than triple the amount of people who actually care about the Bills!

(As a sidenote, nice job getting such a big following. And people keep coming, so it's not going to die out! Yay!)

Well we covered a great deal of topics including Great People in Modern History and World War I. We intend to finish World War I when we come back and then advance to the between the wars period.
