Clubs & Organizations

History Club

The History Club is an organization where history buffs can get together to discuss historical events, conduct fun activities, and represent their love for history throughout the campus community. 

“I enjoy being part of the History Club because it is a nice group of people who all share a common interest and passion of history from all over the world. It is nice to get together with club members and talk about what’s going on in today’s world, and discuss similar events that may have happened at a different time in history. As a club, we play games, have debates, and get a chance to look forward to the history trip each year where we visit different historical sites with professors from the university." -Nicole Sambuco, Class of 2019

Phi Iota and Phi Alpha Theta

Sacred Heart University offers students the opportunity of getting involved through the history honors society Phi Alpha Theta. The local chapter at SHU is called Phi Iota. With 740 chapters in 50 states, Phi Alpha Theta is an exclusive honors society for history majors and minors who have completed a required 12 hours in history and have maintained a grade point average of at least 3.1 on a 4.0 scale. Each year we induct new members into the organization. Some years we have gone as a group to the regional academic conferences where students have had a chance to present papers. It was chartered in 1974.
