Christopher Maze, Megas Chrysophylax
Salvete v’omnes! I’m Chris Maze, a rising junior at Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, PA. My major is Classical Languages and Literature, and while I study both Latin and Ancient Greek, my focus is in Latin. I also am interested in Medieval Studies, and my personal research area is the transitionary period of Late Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages.
I was born in Frederick, Maryland, and have lived in what I like to call a sub-rural area for my life. I started taking Latin in my freshman year of high school and continued throughout, getting involved in the Junior Classical League (JCL) at local, state, and national levels. I decided that I wanted to pursue Latin, either for work in the Classics or in preparation for Medieval Studies, and went to Franklin & Marshall College as an intended Latin major. I joined Eta Sigma Phi and was elected Chrysophylax of our Theta Alpha chapter during my sophomore year. This year, as Prytanis of Theta Alpha chapter, and as Megas Chrysophylax, I look forward to making a difference at both the local and national level and helping boost awareness and appreciation of the classics for our communities.
Thank you for allowing me this opportunity. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
