Political Awareness Club’s First Semester is a Success!

The Vanguard University Forum (Political Awareness Club) chartered with the Intercollegiate Studies Institute and in partnership with the VU Department of History and Political Science would like to thank the VU Community for its support in a successful first semester in our existence of a club. The Club’s goal is to present various perspectives through different outlets and help our peers understand and articulate their views on relevant issues and values that affect our everyday lives. This past spring our club hosted a student debate on the Affordable Care Act, a Professor Debate on Church and State, a movie night, and three Political Discussion Nights. We look forward to another successful school year!
