The History Students Association
The History Student Association, under the leadership of Ann Helms, Emily Schwabe, and Emma Fish, continues to be active across the school hosting a career fair and the undergraduate research conference in the Spring.
Members also continued historical movie nights and end of term celebrations at McMenamins. This year, student members offered their time during the winter term to assist in the department's hiring process, including meeting with candidates and presenting the student perspective on life at OSU.
HSA also went on an antiquing field trip to find ephemera to donate to the University Archives, held a birthday party for the State of Oregon, and had a historical tour of Newport. In addition to hosting regular visits from professors, the group also started a History Students' Book Club this year. Students made selections to be read and invited professors to lecture on topics related to the books.
