This year our chapter began holding regular
monthly activities for all its members.
We held multiple movie nights where we
showed movies such as the original Clash
of the Titans, A Funny Thing Happened
on the Way to the Forum, and parts of the
Rome miniseries. We found that this was
a good way to keep in touch with one
another and get together during months
when we did not plan large activities.
In October, we held a birthday party in
honor of Virgil on our campus green space.
Over twenty members attended. We had
cake, made cards, and sang “Happy Birthday”
to Virgil. The event was well-received
both by members of the club and by curious
students walking past the event.
In December, around forty people attended
our Saturnalia party. We spent the
night raising funds by raffling off books,
enjoying a catered Italian meal, exchanging
gifts, and getting acquainted with various
members in light conversation. This event
was our most successful of the year, and
we hope to have this sort of success at our
induction ceremony at the end of April.
In February, three professors and five
members participated in an annual intracollegiate
world trivia contest called World
Quest. An international dinner accompanied
the competition. This event was new
for our chapter, but one which we enjoyed.
We hope to include two teams in the event
next year.
In the beginning of April, 15 members
took a weekend road trip to Nashville, TN
to visit the city’s Parthenon. We took an
official tour of the Parthenon, hung out in
Centennial Park, visited Vanderbilt University,
and saw other parts of the city. The
family of one of our new members hosted
us with a cookout at their home.
Our final activity for the year was a
large induction ceremony held at the end of
April. We also designed and sold t-shirts.
