The Phi Kappa Literary Society is a debate society at the University of Georgia. We meet every academic Thursday at Phi Kappa Hall on North Campus at 7 p.m.

All with an insatiable appetite for knowledge and oratory are welcome.


The Literary Society at UGA:

The Phi Kappa Literary Society is a debate organization founded in 1820 at University of Georgia. We meet once a week during the academic year to practice oratory, debate, and creative writing. Our members strive to develop the necessary skills to present their views in an articulate and logical fashion while discerning the strengths and weakness of other positions. Through time spent in our Hall, we sharpen the public speaking skills vital to success in the professional world. As members, we forge bonds of friendship that will last a lifetime.

A typical meeting begins at 7PM with a prepared debate (the topic of which is announced here) followed by creative writings and orations. The meeting then moves downtown for refreshments and an opportunity to socialize, and concludes with lighthearted auxiliary debate. More information about the Society is on the guests page, but ultimately, the best way to find out about Phi Kappa is to attend a meeting and decide for yourself. Guests are always welcome and encouraged (though not obligated) to speak.
