The Spike or Victoria University College Review June 1925

Victoria Club

Victoria Club.

The Victoria Club, although its membership is limited to past and present students of V.U.C., is not an affiliated College Society; its existence and activities, however, have aroused a great deal of interest amongst the students as a whole. As was inevitable, owing to the fact that the Club, having no locus standi, was unable to proclaim its existence through the customary medium of the notice boards, misapprehensions have arisen as to the objects of the body. In order to make clear the exact position, a clause of the Constitution is annexed:—

"The objects of the Club are:—
(a)To promote good fellowship and esprit de corps among members and students at Victoria University College, and in particular to cultivate a lively interest in College affairs.
(b)Social and general activities."

The Club is in no sense political, its membership is large, having already climbed to over 100, and its meetings are regular and well attended. The social side of the Club is not by any means neglected, for, although it has been in existence only six months, several very successful functions have been held; further, it is proposed in the near future to lease and furnish a Club-room in the City. If the Victoria Club can by any means accomplish its objects—that it has made an auspicious commencement can scarcely be doubted—it is certain that a great service will have been rendered to the College.

(The foregoing was contributed in response to our request, and is included in the Club Notes section of the "Spike" merely for convenience of arrangement. We cannot but wish the Club success in its object concerning the College; it has certainly stimulated interest in the Debating Society.")
