About the Philosophy Circle

The Philosophy Circle is the University of Memphis Philosophy Department's undergraduate student organization, but membership and involvement are not exclusive to philosophy majors. In fact, we encourage any UofM undergraduate, regardless of major, to participate in our events and programs.

The Philosophy Circle is listed on the University of Memphis RSO database at the following address: https://www.memphis.edu/philosophy/undergraduate/philosophy-circle.php

To become an official member, students can request membership through that page, or contact Bishope Wilson.

Undergraduate Philosophy Tutoring Center

The Philosophy Circle provides tutoring in all areas of philosophy, including logic, help with paper writing, and assistance comprehending class readings. The tutoring center is located in Clement Hall 316. We are available for students to walk-in at the following times:

Monday: 9:00-4:00
Tuesday: 9:00-4:00

For more information about tutoring, or to request an appointment outside of our walk-in hours, contact Bishope Wilson. Please include your name and what class you are looking for tutoring in.

Our tutoring center is staffed entirely by high-performing undergraduates, typically philosophy majors who are in their junior or senior years. If you are interested in becoming a tutor, please contact Bishope Wilson.

Additionally, if you are new to philosophy and are considering a major or further study, any of our tutors would be happy to discuss their experiences and the opportunities they have found. Feel free to contact Bishope Wilson and request to be put in touch with one of the tutors, or stop by the tutoring center during any of our walk-in hours.
