Senate RenewSSU Email

Salvete Discipuli Classicorum,


I would like to personally congratulate the new 2017 Summer Senate, who will form the first half of the 2017-2018 CLASSU Senate. At the elections and journal launch tonight, we elected Samantha Mazzilli as our next President, along with Laura Harris as Vice-President, with Elizabeth Colonna, Felipe Vallejo, and Julia Wyganowski rounding out the executive of five. I, on behalf of the 2016-2017 Senate, wish them all the best with summer planning and next year!


While we are very much winding down for this year, CLASSU still has you covered for Hoodies and Exam Jams! If you ordered a hoodie, below are the times when you can pick them up. If you didn’t order one, but want one, we have a limited number available! Come to the CLASSU Lounge at the following times. Starting 12 April, these are also Exam Jams, where we will have the Lounge open as a study space with free snacks and drinks, hot and cold.

If you want to pick up a copy of Plebeian Volume III, they’re now available in the CLASSU Lounge, and will soon be available at Pratt Library and online as a PDF. Applications for the position of Plebeian Editor-in-Chief are now available online here. If you are interested in being in charge of Plebeian Volume IV, read the page and submit your form by 7 April 2017 at 4:00 p.m.


Lastly, this email list will be updated in the summer, so you will be unsubscribed automatically if you are graduating or no longer enrolled in a Classics POSt.


I’d like to end off this email by thanking you, the students, as well as the Senate (Senatus Populusque Torontonensis) for granting me the honour and privilege of serving both as Vice-President and then President over the past four years. It’s been great to work with so many energetic and talented people who also share a love (or at least grudging affection) for the Classical World. I want to especially thank Samantha Mazzilli for her support, creativity, and leadership this year, as well as Toby Keymer for his four years of service on CLASSU.  I’ll finish off by customarily pushing the FREE FOOD at the Exam Jams, and encourage everyone to stay involved with CLASSU and give the same support and enthusiasm to Sam and the rest of the new Senate.


I look forward to see what comes next! Valete!


Willem Crispin-Frei

CLASSU President 2016-2017
