KEMS is an academic club that seeks to help students in their academic aspirations. This club is of particular interest to students within the EBM (Economics, Business, Math) disciplines, as all three disciplines are interwoven and addressed by various activities of the club. The club works very closely with professors Ibott and Turnbull, who are great resources for students continuously striving to succeed.
Within its first year of running, the club successfully intrigued many members, as KEMS offers many unique opportunities. Networking opportunities with distinguished individuals within the EBM fields have allowed for current bank department managers to come in, people who have worked on the Cayman Islands, professors, and many others to share their experiences with students. Many of these individuals participated in our Speaker Convention, while others are always around and are ready to connect with students.
Tutoring services are also offered weekly for those that wish to perfect their understanding on certain mathematical or economic concepts and through this volunteer opportunities exist, as all our tutors are student volunteers. Mock exams are also available closer to exam season in order to prepare students for what is ahead of them. Socials are always a must and so KEMS offers at least a couple of socials per term (karaoke night, Network & Chill, etc.) and the Enrichment Program is a fantastic way to gain some necessary skills that will help you as you go through school or as you join the workforce. To find out what other events and services we offer, come join the club or send us an email! After all, we are always "Soaring toward success" and wish to help your in your search for success as well.

The KLA's main focus: helping to make sure all Londoners have their basic needs satisfied: water, food, shelter, sanitation. How will we do this? With direct volunteer work in London, either with an established organization or through independent KLA projects. While most clubs rely on the hard dedication of club executives to guide general members through the year's activities, the KLA has a different approach. This is a club that relies on the collective agreement of all KLA members, where majority rules. In other words, your experience isn't made in the image of the KLA, the KLA is made in the image of you.
The KPSA or Philosopher Kings is a group currently run by Christian Vetro and Duane Lauzon. Christian is an English Major and Duane is a Philosophy major. Christian enjoys reading a good book by the fire and can commonly be found under a bridge by the river. Duane enjoys music, making light conversation, and keeping it real.

Meetings will typically be held during the evening hours when it is most convenient for our members. Out meetings will be held in a variety of places, including but not limited to, the Student Life Centre, King’s library, a variety of pubs for pub night, and in the London community. The long term goal of the KPSA is to help students administer their own views and observations into a personal philosophy that does not indulge in the self. The secondary goal is to meet new people, have a good time and learn something new. Events that we host will include pub nights (as previously mentioned), a seminar with a speaker from the philosophy department, debate and discus, movie night, book studies, and a variety of paper readings and editing sessions.

The Thanatology Club is the official academic club of the Thanatology program. Thanatology is the study of death, dying and bereavement. The Thanatology program looks at how death related losses, and non-death related losses (i.e. loss of a job, relationship, happiness, etc) shape and mold us as human beings. Despite popular misconceptions, thanatology is NOT a morbid program, and any student who takes a Thanatology class knows that it’s actually a life-confirming experience. Thanatology can offer one an appreciation of life as it acknowledges the fact that life is finite and thus precious, so one should make the most of it by seeking out satisfying and meaningful opportunities.
The Thanatology Club’s function is to provide intellectual stimulation through social situations regarding the fields of death, dying, and bereavement in an academic but friendly and welcoming setting. Topics of discussion will include (but are not limited to): alternative therapies; how to live a good life; the search for happiness; bereavement; children and death; change, transition and loss; cultural views regarding death, death systems, dying and death; ethical issues; funeral practices; social/political issues; spiritual/philosophical issues; psychological factors; social justice regarding Thanatology; palliative care, and so much more!
While many students in this club are in the Thanatology program, we openly welcome all King’s students to our club membership. Simply put, grief and loss is a universal event that all humans share, and it affects everybody. Students may also bring friends or family to our events because of this fact, and our club encourages having meaningful conversations with loved ones regarding stigmatized topics such as death.
Our past events have included thought-provoking lectures such as: physician assisted suicide in Canada, therapeutic alternatives and connecting to nature in loss, funeral cosmetology and open casket ceremonies, home funerals, and even book clubs. Additionally, we have also had many social events such as: murder mystery parties, annual meet and greets, haunted hayrides, participating in Relay for Life, and even hosting our own death café!
