Euzelian and Philomathesian Literary Societies

Both the Philomathezian and Euzelian Literary societies were organized on February 14, 1835, shortly after the beginning of the second session of Wake Forest Institute. Over time the societies had rooms in College buildings, decorated with chairs that included the clubs’ Greek letters, banners, and books. Society members debated against and with each other. As of 2019, only the Euzelian Society is still in existence. Its mission is to “revive and sustain the intellectual culture of Wake Forest University by fostering a creative academic outlet for students.”
