Phi Alpha Theta Alpha-Nu-Epsilon Chapter

Phi Alpha Theta Alpha-Nu-Epsilon Chapter is a club for History majors, minors, and enthusiasts!

Our goal is to promote excellence and the enjoyment of history through interaction with history professors, fellow students, and various academic activities. 

Although we're a professional society we strive to enjoy our time at school and our studies. Serious. Fun! Our activities include hosting group study sessions, movie nights, game nights, trips, and more.
