Alpha Gamma Chapter at Southern Methodist
University inducted nine new members
and two associate members in February
2011 at a candlelight ceremony in the
Rotunda of Dallas Hall. Following the ritual
and ceremony, new initiates and members
along with several alumni gathered to eat,
meet, and greet new and old friends.
In the fall, Eta Sigma Phi members
joined with the Classical Studies Club
to participate in the Ludi Romani on the
Commons of SMU campus. Mock gladiator
fights were the main event with the
standout contestant being the retiarius.
We also hosted our annual celebration
of the founding of Rome on April 21 with
a Latin lunch and readings from Livy.
Members of Eta Sigma Phi also took advantage
of the Meadows Museum exhibit:
Lost Manuals of the Sistine Chapel.
