Salvete/χαιρετε fellow students!
Welcome to a new year of CMS events! Our first event, Meet-The-Prof night, is a tradition within CMS where the students and professors in the Classical Studies and Medieval Studies Departments come out to socialize and get to know one another better. It’s a great way to get to know your fellow students, professors, and get involved in CMS events! This year’s Meet-The-Profs was slightly different, as we held the event at McGinnis’ Front Row due to the Grad House’s new rules to implement fees for room rental. In order to maximize our budget for the best student enjoyment, McGinnis was our best bet – and it certainly was a good choice! With various appetizers – from nachos to garlic bread, it was a success! The event was held immediately after an informative lecture by Dr. Kroeker – Should Xenophon really be considered a Historian? There is much in his own writings that could indeed make it seem otherwise (and for students who have studied some Greek, the text that was analyzed in the lecture was also quite understandable!).
In terms of upcoming events, keep an eye out for some awesome October functions to come! These include CMS’s first ever bonfire, a Hallowe’en potluck, and of course some casual pub nights to let off some steam from all that studying!
We hope to see you all there!
