A Classic Journey

Fall Family Weekend marked the seventh year that the Classics Department staged a marathon reading of one of four classical texts: Iliad, Aeneid, Odyssey, and Metamorphosis. “We alternate between Greek and Latin,” explained Trish Dougherty, academic coordinator for classics and classical studies. Trish is a key organizer of the event, and she provided much of the background in the following slide show from the weekend’s event, which took place just inside the entrance to the Davis Family Library and featured the Odyssey.

Each year, the department chair finds a student volunteer to be in charge of signing up the readers. This year it was Barrett Smith ’13 who took on the huge job.
