Congratulations, you’ve just about made it to the home stretch of the year! We at CLASSU have some exciting events coming up this March, as well as some things that are not events but still exciting!
Does the UofT Bookstore’s lack of CLASSICS clothing bother you? Do you feel ignored, being relegated to the anonymous moniker of ARTS AND SCIENCE? Cast off your feelings of neglect and rejoice, for CLASSU’s got you covered—order an (unofficially) Official Department of Classics hoodie brought to you by the Classics Students’ Union Senate.
For only $25.00, a lovely navy or grey hoodie can be yours. Click here for details!
Friday 3 March 2017 – 1:00p.m. – LI 009
Come get your trivia on with CLASSU and VicTrivia! Snacks provided, of course.
Oral Reading Club Meeting
Wednesday 8 March 2017 – 2:00-3:00p.m. – LI 009
Do you fancy yourself the latest Demosthenes or Cicero? Have you been doing your breathing exercises? Or neither? Come out to the Lounge anyways! See past performances here.

Academic Seminar with Professor Welsh about the Impact of Agriculture on Latin Semantics
Friday 17 March 2017 – 1:00-2:00p.m. – LI 220
Come join CLASSU and our own Professor Welsh as he takes a non-systematic look at the role agricultural language plays in Latin and the way in which agriculture provides the semantic arena and analogy for a lot of Latin that has nothing directly to do with farming. Title and Facebook event forthcoming!
Backpacks 2 Briefcases Dinner (RSVP link to be posted soon)
Thursday 23 March 2017 – 6:00p.m. – Faculty Club Dining Room
Join CLASSU and alumni guests of the BA programme in Classics from the University of Toronto (guests TBA) at a free dinner to learn more about career options in “the real world” with a degree in Classics or Classical Civilizations. Space will be limited, so stay tuned for an RSVP link!
We don’t want this email to drag on forever, so we’ll conclude by saying that there are also two more events coming up—the Social/Elections/Journal Launch and the Third Mentorship Lunch/About the Department of Classics POSts Lunch! Check out our Events Page for more info! Nomination forms for the elections will go live in early March.
That’s all from us (for now), so enjoy the last few moments of reading week,
Sam and Willem
On behalf of the CLASSU Senate
