  • The 2 Best Ways to Build Your Events

    CMS First off, welcome back from reading week! I hope you spent it sequestered in your lair, poring over your text books and ensuring your readiness for the finals which loom ever closer, rather than having fun, hanging out, or visiting places that are totally rad. None of that is true. A month ago, I […]

  • Shut Pie-hole Quickly, Rapscallion

    I was going to talk about serious things today, about how to motivate people and get them on board with projects, that sort of thing. But then I remembered it’s the Friday before reading week, and you don’t need any more load on your brain as you retire from classes for a week to diligently […]

  • Classics Abroad

    Every year, the department sends someone to intern at the Canadian Institute in Greece, to see the world and learn about classical studies first hand. Today’s post is a reflection of Kyle Campbell, last year’s CIG intern, about his experiences there. 

  • Snow Day

    If you didn’t know, UW is closed today. Try not to study too hard, you’ve earned a bit of a break. Jim Tigwell isn’t leaving his damn house today. He’s going to watch Youtube and communicate only via Twitter.

  • Ologies

    Not elegies, ologies. You read it right. Remember that archaeology song I recorded last year, on my crappy webcam mic? This week I did a video about my bibliography, and included the final cut of the song! Go past the jump to hear the new and improved archaeology song.

  • Counselling

    The best one-stop shop on campus for stress management is definitely Counselling Services. Whether it’s your deadlines weighing you down, a new term looming ahead, relationship trouble, work, or problems at home, they’re here for you. They serve students, staff, and faculty, and have offices all over campus, including in residence, as well as the […]

  • Leading a Horse to Water

    CMS You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink. That’s what they say, anyway. But as someone with little to no experience leading horses, I’m not convinced I could get it there. When I asked a CMS exec what they wish they knew, if they could go back and do […]

  • Stress

    You read it. The elephant in the room when it comes to university, especially official university serious business blogging (which Labyrinth totally is). Stress. Student life is stressful. You’ve got exams and essays, application deadlines, grades to keep up, assignments to do, and that’s before getting into anything to do with extracurriculars, money, work, or […]

  • CMS


    If you’re here, you know about CMS, the Classical and Medieval Studies Student Society. No, they don’t use all the letters, because that would give everyone a headache. You probably know one or more of the current executives, Jocelyn, Kyle, and Sydney. Maybe you were one in the past, like me. If you’re majoring or […]

  • Treasure Hunt

    Newsreel It’s been a while since one of these. There’s been a lot of other things going on, so we haven’t had room. The Richard III results aren’t in yet, so I won’t talk about that. But there have been a lot of cool discoveries in the field,  mostly relating to treasure. Let’s face it, […]
