Classics Day

The Classics Department at the College of Charleston invites high school and middle school students from across the state to join us for Classics Day on November 4, 2017. This is a combined event with South Carolina Junior Classical League’s (SCJCL) Fall Forum and will feature presentations by members of the CofC faculty and a visiting professor from USC-Columbia, conversations with members of CofC’s chapter of Eta Sigma Phi, and a live demonstration by Legio VI of Castra Romana of Roman military life. Campus tours and library tours will also available. We are going to have a whole lot of Classics fun!  

Registration cost will be $1 per student (teachers/chaperones free), and the deadline is October 20.
