Our Purpose

The Philosophy Club is intended to provide a forum for the free exchange and discussion of philosophical ideas among Boise State undergraduates and Philosophy Department faculty. One of the principle functions of the Club is sponsorship of periodic visits by philosophers from other universities.


The Club meets every other Wednesday at 7 p.m., at Papa Joe’s which is at the corner of University Drive and Capital Boulevard. Food and beverages are available for purchase. Contact an officer for the details of the next meeting.
