On behalf of the executive and department, thank you for joining one of the oldest and most active student groups at Western University.

The History Society is an academically based club that operates with close affiliation to the Department of History. The club pursues academic as well as social events and gives students the opportunity to interact with those of similar interests and academic goals.
