History Club: Robert Morris University History Club | Robert Morris University

History Club

The History Club allows Robert Morris undergraduate students from any major or field of study to come together participate in history-focused activities. Our objective is to increase the historical knowledge of our members and the university community by sponsoring historical lectures and discussions, history film nights, and trips to local museums and historical societies. In addition, the History Club's annual spring semester trip has allowed club members to visit numerous historical destinations, including Gettysburg, Colonial Williamsburg, Baltimore, Washington D.C., and New Orleans.

We invite prospective members to attend our monthly meetings or service projects, and are always willing to accept new members from throughout the University!

For more information about what our organization does or to become a member of The History Club, please email or speak with Dr. Daniel Barr (barrd@rmu.edu) or Dr. John McCarthy (mccarthy@rmu.edu).

During this past academic year, the RMU History Club was involved in numerous activities. The club sponsored its annual Homecoming tailgate event for current club members and club alumni, club members volunteered at the Special Olympics Winter Games at Seven Springs, and three current and past club officers ran in the American Odyssey Relay Run Adventure in the spring to benefit Hope Connections for Cancer Support and Team Red, White, & Blue, a charity benefitting wounded veterans.


Over twenty students also participated in club's annual field trips, traveling to Gettysburg during the fall semester and to Nashville during the spring semester.
