Classics Club

Classics Club, or in its Latinate form Amici et Amicae Antiquitatis (Friends of Antiquity), is comprised of Greek, Latin, and Greek and Roman Culture majors and minors as well as a few Fineberg groupies (students who enjoy Classics Department courses but do not have the academic diligence to actually declare a major or minor).

The club is known for its annual Homerathon, where over 20 Knox students read from Stanley Lombardo's translation of the Odyssey. The Classics Club is most well-known, however, for its Spring Dinner and Reading held apud Fineberg.

The club has an event every year where they write seemingly random Greek and Latin phrases in chalk around campus. These phrases often translate to terrible insults, but you wouldn't know that, as you don't know how to read Greek or Latin.
