What we do


Every week, NUIG Stoic Society meets to discuss challenging topics, including interesting issues that appear in the News. NUIG Stoic Society attempts to offer answers and perspectives that will contribute to the Public Discourse. You can submit your own work to the Ask The Stoics Blog. Visit our website for more information.



Aims of the Society

  • To provide activities for students that wish to practice Stoicism or socialise.
