CN Philo History

The stories differ about the genesis of Carson-Newman’s Phi Mu Delta. One thing is for sure—it was organized and chartered before the Civil War, and it was established as a “literary society.” By the time the 1970’s rolled around, Phi Mu Delta’s mission and interests had changed—some say evolved. Sure, there were discussions. And yeah, there were debates. However, most of them were not of a literary nature.
