Outside the Classroom

Classics Club

The U of M Classics Club is a group of undergraduates from a variety of majors sharing a common interest in the Near East along with Ancient Greece and Rome within the Classical world and its legacy. We host bi-weekly meetings to promote fellowship among interested undergraduates where we relax and discuss topics that span the width and breadth of the Classical world. We also host monthly events, such as movie nights, guest speakers, and various trips and related activities. All students are welcome, regardless of academic focus!

Meetings are held bi-weekly on Tuesdays at 5:30pm in Nicholson Hall 125.
Meeting Dates: 2/25, 3/11, 3/25, 4/8, 4/22, 5/6
Visit the Classics Club Facebook page for news and events updates.
