"The Philologos Society embodies the best parts of university education, in that it is truly universal: learning, teaching and debating the fundamental questions of human existence while engaging in humanitarian outreach and camaraderie. I have always had a fierce love of knowledge, and Philologos indulges and cultivates that in a compelling way.”
- Sean S, student
"Organizations like Philologos remind me of the deep commitment to ideas and intellectual discovery on campus at USC. I’m honored to be an affiliate of the organization, and inspired in my own teaching by its model of intellectual community and passionate enthusiasm for arts and humanities learning."

"I joined 3 or 4 sessions and really like them. The founders are passionate young men who are eager to help and make a positive impact. I remember that, in a session, we had a lively discussion about ego and the different layers of it. I learned where the word "ego" came from and Freud's theories. Those discussions were stimulating and thought-provoking. I can see the committee members put a lot of efforts into each session. It is really an amazing student organization. Thank you Philologos Society for those great sessions and sharing! And look forward to future events!"
- Jevon S, student
"I don’t think that I have really ever experienced such conversational and inviting lectures as the ones which Philologos puts on. The small classroom setting, interesting content, and encouragement of questions allowed me to interact with academic material in a uniquely lighthearted yet engaging way. Add in a slice of pizza and some other cool students, and being apart of Philologos becomes a really great time! So glad that I am."
- Romano O, student
"The Philologos Society is an oasis of the mind in a barren world, and I am so glad to be a part of it. I have experienced so much in the past year, and I have met other people who enjoy discussing niche topics ranging from art to political economy to Freudian psychology as much as I do! "
- Benjamin T, student
"Philologos is a truly amazing organization! I made so many new friends and learned so many new things in the mentally-engaging environment the club fosters"
