Phi Plaque

The Philanthropic Assembly proudly continues the rebellious tradition of Society father David Gillespie, who led the organization to break away from the Debating Society just twenty-nine days after its foundation. The Phis follow the ideal of libertas (hinting at a long-standing point of disagreement between the two Societies) in addition to the old Di values of virtus and scientia. Phi President Austin Glock Andrews currently leads the Phis in the continual search for self-betterment. Find a list of current active Philanthropic Senators below.

Responsibility is a unique concept… You may share it with others, but your portion is not diminished. You may delegate it, but it is still with you… If responsibility is rightfully yours, no evasion, or ignorance or passing the blame can shift the burden to someone else. Unless you can point your finger at the man who is responsible when something goes wrong, then you have never had anyone really responsible.

- Hyman Rickover

I’m a junior majoring in English, minoring in Creative Writing (fiction) and Environmental Studies. My favorite things in life are books, thunderstorms, and my gramma’s macaroni and cheese. My Di Phi peers receive my constant admiration since I thrive on discussion, diplomacy, and getting away with fun because you’re in formal wear.

Ah, good conversation – there’s nothing like it, is there? The air of ideas is the only air worth breathing.

Esteemed guests: In my time at DiPhi, I’ve learned that nothing brings people closer together than sharing great ideas. Please come out to our meetings and share yours with us!
