The "Classics Board" (Undergraduate Organization)

Penn's "Classics Board" is equivalent to a student club and Undergraduate Advisory Board all at once!

We do several things:

  • Serve as a liaison between students and faculty, attending department meetings to advise on the curriculum and other issues.
  • Organize events including: movie nights, play-readings, "faculteas", "favorite pages", and the NSO Toga Party.
  • ProduceĀ Discentes, the department's student magazine.
  • Serve as peer-advisors in the MAP (Major Advising Program), speaking with students interested in majoring or minoring in Classical Studies.
  • We collaborate with the Undergraduate Chair in organizing information sessions on such topics as study abroad, Senior Research Papers, and applying for graduate programs.
  • We help to plan the department's Senior Colloquium every April.

To get involved, please contact pennclassicsboard@gmail.com, or the undergraduate chair, Prof. James Ker.
