Please contact a member of the Campion College Student Association is you have an idea for a new society. 


Society spotlight: Classics Society

The Campion Classics society prides itself on the ideals which underlie its intellectual, cultural and social pursuits – namely, wisdom, liberty of mind and humanitas. These ideals, first exemplified in the thinkers of ancient Greece and Rome, hold pride of place in Campion’s core program, but the Classics society brings together like minded students who share a desire to bring these perennial ideals into student life. Formed in early 2011 by the initiative of Peter McCumstie, a third-year Latin student, the classics society regularly meets to discuss Latin works, and has organized social excursions to museums. The society welcomes all students (familiarity with the ancient languages is not prerequisite!) to its initiatives and social events – the joy of antiquity’s wisdom should, after all, be shared by all!


Society spotlight: Debating Society

Debating has been a tradition at Campion since its early days. The Debating Society holds events on campus often, ranging from friendly lunch time debates between teams of students to an annual, formal debate against the Lachlan Macquarie Internship. In the past, the Debating Society has hosted workshops to hone students’ public speaking skills and develop their confidence in making sound arguments. Campion debaters also compete in various competitions against other university debating groups, and have earned a number of impressive victories over the years.
