Salvete v’omnes! I’m Chris Maze, a rising senior 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 all my life. I started taking Latin in my first 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. Over the past year I have served as Prytanis of my local chapter, and Megas Chrysophylax for the National Board. Now, as Megas Prytanis, I am excited to work with the new officers and pursue some opportunities to work with other Undergraduate Classics groups that I have been exploring.
Thank you for allowing me this opportunity. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
