During the 2010–2011 academic year,

members of the Epsilon Nu chapter at

Creighton were involved in a number of

activities. As a group, we watched two

mini-series: I, Claudius and Rome. Afterwards,

discussions were held among those

in attendance.

Eta Sigma Phi, along with the Department

of Classical & Near East Studies,

sponsored a series of lectures and classroom

activities by Drs. Peter and Karen

Green from the University of Iowa. This

was a special treat both for students of


and for the campus at large.

In many ways, the highlight of the year

was the organization’s certamen activities.

In order to help high school students prepare

for “official” competition, Eta Sigma

Phi sponsors an annual “mock” certamen.

Divided into three divisions (beginning,

intermediate, and advanced), high school

students are quizzed on topics relating

to grammar, vocabulary, and language.

Approximately 100 Omaha-area students

participated in this year’s program, which

was held at the end of January 2011.

Having enrolled almost twenty new

members and elected a new slate of officers,

the Epsilon Nu chapter looks forward

with great anticipation to the beginning of

a new academic year in August.
