UnterGang: The Undergraduate Philosophy Club

UnterGang (the Undergraduate Philosophy Club) seeks to provide an atmosphere of intellectual stimulation, conducive to the development of undergraduate students serious about submitting to the rigors of critical philosophical discussion. Pluralist in orientation, UnterGang is open to all voices and perspectives. Our intent is to focus and support student interest in philosophy here at the University of Oregon by offering a focal point for undergraduate activity.

UnterGang aims to offer students ample opportunity to share questions, concerns, and ideas, as well enable undergraduates to articulate their needs to the Philosophy Department. Besides organizing Philosophy Club meetings, UnterGang also alerts students to philosophical events at the U of O and throughout the Northwest, and arranges luncheons and meetings with visiting scholars whenever possible.

UnterGang is a hub of social and scholarly activity associated with the Undergraduate Program, and a supportive network of students interested in philosophy; it’s a great venue for continuing a conversation about all matters philosophical outside of the classroom, for getting to better know your peers in the program, the perfect place to pitch new (or old) ideas and explore alternative ways of thinking, and a unique chance to gather together and discuss philosophical ideas in a fun, relaxed, safe, and inclusive atmosphere.

Everyone is welcome to attend the Club’s meetings at any point during the term. Come cogitate and laugh and learn with us!
