The Word Society
Formerly known as the English Club, the Word Society has been an LU organization since 2001. This extracurricular organization is open to all Lindenwood students, and holds regular meetings to plan upcoming events. The Word Society invites LU students who are interested in producing or enjoying virtually any kind of creative endeavor, including the language arts—reading and writing literature, journalism, and communications; theater; dance; music; studio arts; fashion design; and graphic design. The Word Society is both an academic and a social organization providing a casual, on-campus forum for students to share and enjoy each other’s works of art, literature, and communications as well as the works of others in those areas.
Any student at Lindenwood University is invited to become a member of the Word Society. This club is not intended for any specific major or course of study, but is for anyone showing interest in any aspect the club has to offer. To become a member, a student needs only to attend a meeting or contact a member of the Executive Committee or a faculty sponsor to be added to the list of members and exchange contact information. Members are asked to take part in voting on important club issues and to contribute to the activities sponsored by the Word Society.
