About the Club

Athenaeum is the Political Science and MUN club of NIT Trichy. Athenaeum was established by a group of individuals passionate about political science, current affairs, and the concept of Model United Nations. It conducts and participates in South Indian MUN circuits on behalf of the National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirappalli.

We provide students a non-partisan platform to discuss and debate current social and political issues within the campus, state, country, and the world. We also conduct various events to create opportunities for students to learn about current affairs and to increase the overall campus engagement in the field of political science.
