Congratulations to the Socratic Society on being named UWF's April Registered Student Organization of the Month! The Socratic Society is one of the oldest student organizations at UWF. This academic club is "dedicated to the discussion of philosophical, social, and moral ideas ... in their relation to the vital issues of contemporary society," according to the group's constitution. The club is also involved in philanthropy. Its SocSoc charity donates socks and hygiene products to the homeless. 

According to the group's nominator, after a dip in attendance last spring, the new president has worked to revive the organization, which has since welcomed many new members. "They have many guest speakers, do charity every semester, and are always trying to engage students in interesting conversations in and outside of meetings," the nominator said.
