ASU Fall Forum in Classics 2012

This event is co-sponsored by: Archaeological Institute of America Central Arizona Society, Archaeological Research Institute, Eta Sigma Phi, Solis Diaboli (Classics Club at ASU), and the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies (ACMRS)
Cost: Free and open to the public
ASU's School of International Letters and Cultures will partner with the Archaeological Institute of America's Central Arizona Society to offer our third annual Fall Forum in Classics on November 16, 2012. Over 150 students studying ancient Greek and Latin in their high schools will visit the ASU campus for the day, to experience what ASU offers in Classics and learn about being a student at ASU through participating in lectures, games, contests, and creative activities. The Central Arizona Society works closely with ASU’s School of International Letters and Cultures and the undergraduate Classics Club, Solis Diaboli, to sponsor this event every year. Interactive and hands-on presentations from professors volunteering with Apples + Archaeology (Central Arizona Society’s outreach program) form the centerpiece of the day’s events, including “How to sacrifice an Ox,” “Roman Election,” and “Why the Dead Sea Scrolls Aren't Really Dead,” and many others. The Archaeological Research Institute and the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies also support the event by offering programs highlighting their research groups. Students have a chance to win prizes in various competitions including a poster contest, impromptu art contest, and the popular "certamen" trivia contest.
