Welcome to the Harry Potter Club!

Welcome to the Harry Potter Club group page! This is a organization founded to serve all of us who are interested in (and perhaps a bit more than interested) in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter books and movies. This year we are hoping to have a Dumbledore's Army self-defense class as well as a Triwizard Tournament.

Our meetings take place on Wednesdays at 7pm in Main 116.

You have no incoming announcements.
President: Courtney LaChance
Vice President: Elizabeth Schoos
Treasurer: Kristen Linder

An article discussing the growing tensions between Harry Potter and Twilight and whether or not Harry Potter is still good literature.
