By Aeger on July 26, 2019.

Gwen Luxemburg Weiskopf is a rising senior at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and hails from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Gwen is majoring in Classical Latin and Greek Languages. She began taking Latin in the ninth grade and has been enthralled by the language and literature since then. Gwen is also proud to be carrying on Temple University’s tradition of having a woman in the position of Grammateus on the National board of Eta Sigma Phi. Gwen is the President of the Zeta Beta chapter of Eta Sigma Phi and has worked for the past semester as a Diamond Peer Teacher in the Classics department’s Latin 1 class. She will be writing her undergraduate thesis on women in the Aeneid in the fall, hoping to show some love to Dido and the other female heroes in the story. Gwen enjoys watching new Star Wars movies and TV shows, reading Sapphic poetry, drawing and painting whenever she gets a chance, and playing Pokemon Go every time she goes outside.
