Recruitment & Retention


Classics Archaeology Day


On April 4th Classics Program hosted an AIA Classics Outreach Day where 80-100 local High school students visited campus and learned more about CMLL and Classical world. They got to participate in archaeology fair, hear a lecture by our visiting speaker Dr. Huntley, visit Special Collections with Bruce Cammack, and tour campus. All in all it was a great success- the students enjoyed the day and the AIA and CMLL was featured prominently hopefully creating further opportunities for outreach and local student retention in the future.


Students walked in a procession from the United Spirit Arena to the Media and Communication building, stopped for a few minutes and listened to Dr. Kelly introduce them to some opening lines from Greek and Latin epic poetry, before they went to hear Dr. Huntley's lecture on Roman graffiti.
