initiated recently into Dickinson's chapter of Eta Sigma Phi, the Classics honor society http://www.etasigmaphi.com.
The ceremony took place in
Memorial Hall. Current members and department faculty joined the new
initiates for cake after the ceremony.
The purposes of the
Society, in the words of the Constitution, are "to develop and promote
interest in classical study among the students of colleges and universities; to
promote closer fraternal relationships among students who are interested in
classical study, including inter-campus relationships; to engage generally in
an effort to stimulate interest in classical study, and in the history, art,
and literature of ancient Greece and Rome."
Dickinson's chapter is
an active one, with upwards of 40 members, led this year by senior classics
majors Jessie Graul, Daniella Haigler, Alice Ettling, and juniors James Martin
and Suri Smith.
