Favorite Classical Work: Ovid’s Metamorphoses
I really enjoy Classics Club because its a great way to get to know others in the department and hang out with them outside of class. Since the Classics department is so small, its awesome to know people in your classes better and be able to have friends who understand when you’re really excited about a derivation you just discovered, even if you might be a little too excited.
Classics/Statistics double major
Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex
Why Classics Club: Well, my parents named me Apollo, so it was bound to happen eventually. But seriously, I’ve always been enamored by the Greco-Roman world. I love that so much of the modern world is built from the cultures, governments, architecture (Rotunda!), technologies, and languages of Greece and Rome, so it only makes sense to join a club that celebrates those great classical societies. Plus, the Romans really liked baths. Who doesn’t like a clean society?

Favorite Classical Work: Aeneid
Why Classics Club: The world of classics (from language to culture to history to the shaping of the modern era) has always fascinated me and been a realm that kept my interest when every other field bored me. Classics Club provided an opportunity to socialize with people who held the same interests, understand my love for antiquity, and a space to have fun while enjoying all types of Classics themed activities.
