Phi Alpha Theta/History Club                                        Watch our 2020 Welcome video!

Welcome to Fall Semester 2020 with the Utah State University History Department!

As a senior in the program, I can tell you we have the cream of the crop for our professors. As you continue your historical education, I would like to encourage you to know your professors. They may seem intimidating, but they are personable, ingenious, and frankly, quite hilarious. It will enrich your college education more than you could ever know. Not only will professors be to your benefit but the friends you make along the way.Phi Alpha Theta is a national history honors society, but it is also our local history club. In this society, I have found lifelong friends that have made my college experience amazing! This past January a group of us were able to present our own historical research at the national conference in San Antonio, Texas. These conferences and events not only help you advance in your sphere as a historian but are so much fun! Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 many events have been cancelled this year. And so, we will be hosting events for you within the university's safety precautions. I am graduating in December, so we are also recruiting new officers. This is a great way to gain some leadership experience, and it puts you high on the list for national opportunities in the organization (conferences, scholarships, and networking opportunities). Please contact me or Dr. Proctor if you are interested!
