Are you interested in philosophy? Do often find yourself asking the "deep" questions? Come join us every Wednesday at 5:30 PM for pizza and philosophizing at Rudy's Pizza!
WWU’s Philosophy Club has been a tradition since 1992 (about twenty years!) and it’s been awesome the whole time. On Wednesday evenings, students (and sometimes faculty) hang out and talk philosophy over pizza and drinks. As is tradition, we meet at Rudy’s Pizza in downtown Bellingham at 5:30. In addition to our weekly meeting, we hold various events throughout the year (see 'Events' below) - most notably, each year our top students organize our nationally recognized Northwest Student Philosophy Conference.

[x] Thursday, May 23, Arntzen 100 @ 7:00pm - Dr. Dean Zimmerman from Rutgers University will be giving a general lecture on the relationship between faith and reason.
