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
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.
