This Day in the History of the
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill


June 3, 1795
The Debating Society was formed. One month later the student organization split, with the second group calling itself the "Concord Society." These two bodies were the precursors of the Dialectic and Philanthropic Societies (sometimes called "Di-Phi"), which are the oldest student organizations at the University.
