This fall, History Club has an exciting line-up of events! We launched the semester with a campus-wide historical scavenger hunt that featured places and monuments across campus. The winning team won a $75 Amazon gift card. We’ll be featuring two “History of the Present” lectures that look at some contemporary issue through a historical lens—Dr. Holly Karibo on the long War on Drugs (September 6) and Dr. Laura Belmonte on the election season (November 1). History Club will also be taking a field trip (September 10) to the Crystal Bridges Museum and Frank Lloyd Wright House in Bentonville, AR; having a book sale on September 22 (great books across all genres for $1 or less!); learning about how to apply to graduate school (October 5); throwing a historical dress-up party for Halloween (October 21); hosting movie nights; and sharing lunch socials! See our calendar for full details, and email firstname.lastname@example.org to get on the mailing list for announcements.

With the launch of a new History practicum course, undergraduate history majors now have the opportunity to develop hands-on internship-like experience at a range of institutions. This semester, 6 students are learning and working at the OSU Museum of Art, the Oklahoma Oral History Research Program, and the Special Collections and University Archives. They are also learning about how to identify career paths, build connections with a wider network, and developing a portfolio of material to showcase their knowledge as they enter the job market in years to come.
