Eta Sigma Phi & The Chimera Club
Eta Sigma Phi: Delta Theta Chapter, Dickinson College
"Lovers of Wisdom and Beauty are We . . ."
Eta Sigma Phi is the national honor society for students of Greek, Latin, and Classical Studies. The society was founded in 1914 at the University of Chicago under the name Phi Sigma, and became a national society in 1924 under its current name. The purposes of Eta Sigma Phi are to encourage classical scholarship, enhance the appreciation of our Greek and Roman cultural heritage, and to promote good will and friendship among students of the classics.

Our officers for 2012/2013 are: James Martin local President; Lucy McInerney, Vice President; Chris Striker, Treasurer; Victoria Cacchione, Secretary; Solai Sanchez, Historian; Meredith Wilson, Ossifer.

Be it known that this organization grew out of a group of students
wishing to further the interests of Classics and Archaeology on campus.
Therefore, we, the members of the Chimaera Club, in order to further the
spirit of cooperation and good will among the members of interested
departments and to stimulate interest in the study of classics,
archaeology, and those disciplines that fall within that scope, do
ordain and adopt this Constitution.
