Epsilon Chapter at University of Iowa

The Epsilon chapter had a fun-packed year. We had our traditional departmental coffee hours where the whole department gathered for food, conversation, and poetry readings in Greek and Latin. Our second annual Squirrel Augury took place on Halloween, where our chapter distributed candy and fortunes to students and faculty. In the Spring, we held our annual poetry marathon reading, this year dubbed the Virgil Vigil: we read the Eclogues, Georgics, and the Aeneid.
We promoted the organization this year by holding a table at a Student Org Fair. We initiated two members into the National Organization.
We had many themed meetings this year, from playing Julio-Cluedian at a cupcake eatery–a Clue game retro-fitted with ancient weapons, rooms of a Roman villa, and members of the Julio-Claudian family–to Classical Pictionary. We used our meetings to discuss next years events and promotion strategies as well, and are all looking forward to reuniting in the fall!
