Salvete et χαίρετε! My name is Katlyn Yost. I am originally from a small suburb of Philadelphia and have remained in the Philadelphia area my entire life. In high school, I took my first Latin class to better prepare myself for a pre-med track. However, I quickly discovered my love for Classics and the liberal arts. Soon after that realization, I committed to Temple University’s College of Liberal Arts in Philadelphia. At Temple, I am a rising senior majoring in Classical Languages and Literature and Secondary Education Latin. Although I have studied both Latin and Ancient Greek, I focus primarily on Latin.
At Temple, I have found great friends who share my love of Classics through Temple’s Classics Club and the Zeta Beta chapter of Eta Sigma Phi. I currently serve as the treasurer of my local Zeta Beta chapter and will be continuing my involvement as a co-president next year. I am excited for the year to come and am looking forward to serving as your Megale Grammateus! Here’s to a phenomenal year of Eta Sigma Phi! Valete!
