As a chapter of the Love and Fidelity Network, the Anscombe Society promotes healthy relationships and human dignity as an alternative to the campus hook-up culture. Our events not only seek to foster discussion about the deeper meaning of marriage and sexuality, but also to help our peers build healthy and lasting relationships during their time at college. We also seek to help those wounded by pornography addiction and broken relationships to find healing and freedom. “We’re not talking about repression or prudishness, but about having a sense of your dignity and worth.” –Jason Evert

Our goal is to help students stay healthy and happy all year by organizing health related events on campus.
