Blair’s clubs emphasize the importance of diversity, leadership, service and environmental awareness. These are just a few of the student-run organizations on campus.
Blair’s debate club meets on a
bi-weekly basis with the aim of furthering members’ writing, arguing and public
speaking skills, as well as their knowledge of current events.
Blair International Awareness Club
Blair International Awareness Club (B.I.A.C.) brings together Blair’s international students and students from the United States to learn about each others’ cultures and languages. The Club meets weekly to practice language skills in a social setting.
Perspectives is a student organization dedicated to diversity issues in the Blair community.
The investment club comprises students who show a penchant for understanding financial markets and economics. With the guidance of student leaders and a faculty advisor, participants develop and manage their own investment portfolio, as well as a collective portfolio for the entire club.
Blue & White Key Society
Leadership, honor and service are the three core values of the Blue and White Key Society, a service organization that provides student ambassadors for large Blair functions, such as Parents’ Weekend, Alumni Weekend and Admission Open Houses. In addition, the Blue and White Key sponsors a number of other community events. Students who demonstrate that service is a way of life are nominated for membership by their advisors.
Earthshine is Blair’s environmental club. Interested students and faculty work together to promote understanding of, and commitment to, local and global causes.
The responsibility of students involved in FOCUS is to provide support in the areas of audio-visual and technical equipment for events such as School Meeting, Chapel, Society of Skeptics, pep rallies, and anything else requiring lighting, sound or video. Students who are part of the club gain valuable hands-on technical experience.
Students who are interested in mathematics have numerous opportunities to learn and solve problems outside the classroom. Each year, Blair’s math team usually competes in six MathLeague contests, as well as Princeton University’s PuMac competition and Lehigh University’s High School Math Contest. In addition, many students take the American Math Competition and American Invitational Math Exam.
