Salve! γειά σου! Greetings! The spirit of language and culture is prominently shown through the activities and members of the Classics Society. Established in 1986, The Classics Society is dedicated to promoting campus appreciation of the cultures of Ancient Greece and Rome. The Society sponsors a number of Classics related events including film presentations, museum and theatre outings, and annual events such as Quiz Bowl and Floralia. The Classics Society is a unique club opened to all students on campus.
To highlight a few of the campus favorite events, Quiz Bowl is a competitive event that is held on Thursday nights on campus. As a jeopardy style competition, students take it so seriously that each round is often nail biting. Floralia is another campus favorite. At the end of the spring semester, students pile onto the quad for a pig roasting and chariot racing. This year Floralia will be the weekend of April 26th and all should come out to support the event. Food, live entertainment and completion will be provided.
The 2014 Club of the Year Award was presented to Classics Society. This club is an exceptional one and provides a variety of events and opportunities for students. The club leadership is also remarkable. They do a great job fundraising and an even better job executing events. Classics society is truly a “role-model” club and one that all students should take advantage of at least once during their four years.
