Originally formed in 1839, the Thalian Society – a student-led philosophy society – is the university’s oldest student organization, and possibly the oldest student-led academic society in Georgia. Building on this rich tradition, today’s students have created an active group for discussion and workshops. They also regularly invite philosophical speakers to campus, bringing in experts in a variety of topics to enhance and complement the curriculum.
