The National Security Club helps students gain a high level of appreciation towards the comprehensive nature of national security studies through club meetings and discussion groups. The club introduces students to the 16 different organizations of the Intelligence Community, for example, CIA, NSA, FBI, as well as related private sector companies. The club sponsors guest speakers that have included: Dr. John Behling, former OSS officer, Walter Tremer, NSA officer, Gene Poteat, former CIA officer and president of the Association of Former Intelligence Officers (AFIO), and Scott Dean of the State Department. National Security Club also sponsors field trips to National Cryptologic Museum at NSA, the Institute of World Politics in Washingtond, D.C., and the International Spy Museum.
