The Department of Classics is pleased to recognize and support the self-organized efforts of our undergraduate students.
The Princeton Classics Club
We are devoted to building a community of both classicists and non-classicists who share an appreciation for the classical world and its resonance throughout modern times. The Club hosts a variety of events, listed below, and invites all members of the University to join and get a glimpse of the Department and more broadly, classical civilization. If you would like to join, please email [email protected].
Sampling of past & future events organized by the Club:
- Annual Princeton Certamen — inviting high school students from all over the country, from Wisconsin to New Hampshire, to participate in a day of friendly competition. Certamen is a quiz-bowl style game that tests on many aspects of the ancient Roman world such as culture, mythology, history, literature, and more.
- Saturnalia celebration
- Dinner discussions with professors of the Classics Department, ranging from classical horror to the analysis of Babylonian Literature
- Study breaks such as bullae-making and Penates-sculpting
- Ides of March tribute
