Salvete and XAIPETE, fellow Eta Sigma Phi members! I am Tiffany Montgomery, a senior at the University of Arkansas, Beta Pi Chapter and am proud to represent you as Megale Hyparchos for the upcoming year. Having graduated with my first college degree in 2008 and finding the field of dental hygiene leaving something to be desired, I decided that it was time for a career change. After many conversations with family and friends, I knew the only way that I could be truly happy was to follow my dream of becoming a classicist, and it has been the hardest and most rewarding decision I’ve ever had to make. The classical studies community is my home and I absolutely love all things Greek and Roman! Following my BA in Classics, I intend on pursuing my PhD in Classical Archaeology of the Mediterranean. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, camping, hiking, and drinking my ever present soy latte. I am so excited to be part of such an amazing organization and am looking forward to working with you all in helping the classics continue to thrive!
