At least one-half of the value of a college course for a boy or girl
comes from association with his or her fellow-students in the various
types of student activities. In Howard Payne College excellent
opportunities are offered to the men and to the girls for development
along social and literary lines by two groups of societies-PhiloPhilian
and Phila J.S.H., Theodoric and Irving. The rivalry between
the two groups is friendly but keen and active, leading to the attainment
of the highest degree of excellency by each.
Any student may become a member of the society of his or her
own choice upon application for membership and its acceptance.
The work in each is somewhat similar. In the girls' societies, it is
chiefly social and literary. Active interest is shown in the weekly
meetings and good attendance is required. The men's societies
engage in debating as societies and inter-societies. Two intersociety
debates are held each year. The participants in these are
chosen by preliminary try-outs. These debates are the culmination
of society spirit and rivalry.
No student should go through college without a society membership,
and, since these two groups mutually excel each other, no
student will make a mistake in choosing either.
