About This Organization

Abbreviation(s):
AKS
Purpose:
AKS is an organization that is open to all majors (of students at Texas A&M University and Blinn College) and is focused on the exploration of the Liberal Arts. Each meeting our members explore the areas of language studies, literature, visual arts, history, and music.

AKS meetings are led by members who function as meeting hosts each week. A meeting host presents over their chosen subject, moderates discussion, and then receives feedback from the advisor. Anyone can present over any topic within the sphere of Liberal Arts, although there is a theme for each semester. Some examples of past presentation subjects include: Degas, Howl's Moving Castle and its adaptation, fairy tales, and much more.
