Phi Kappa Hall

In 1820, as a debate on freedom and democracy in Greece was argued across the globe, a small group of students at the University of Georgia was forming a debating society and would eventually take up the topic of Greek independence themselves. On March 28, 1823, members of the new group, the Phi Kappa Literary Society, debated the question, “Ought the United States assist the Greeks in their struggle for liberty?” Nearly to the day 182 years later, UGA student debaters argued a similar question – this time in the context of the war in Iraq – as part of a ceremony rededicating the renovated Phi Kappa Hall on UGA’s North Campus.
