Culture, World Language, & Diversity Clubs

The Art of Manliness Club: This club is about growing up well, aimed at developing young men and their unique challenges and interests.  We explore all things manly, from the serious and philosophical, like manners and relationships, to the practical and fun, like changing your car's oil and how to start a charcoal grill..  We seek to uncover how to live with confidence, virtue, and know-how in the present age and offer young men a way forward on how to live an engaging and flourishing life.
