Harvard Classical Club

Purpose Statement

The Classics Club provides a wide variety of opportunities for enthusiasts of ancient Rome, Greece, and their corresponding languages and cultures to promote and celebrate the Classics. The club's activities include, but are not limited to, a weekly Latin Table (Mensa Latina), classically themed movie nights, the translation and production of a Greek or Latin play for the wider audience on campus, and the occasional toga party. The club also sponsors Persephone, a journal for poetry, art, and translation inspired by the Classics. During the spring semester, club members organize and host the Harvard Certamen, a Latin Quiz-bowl tournament for high school students that attracts schools from across the nation.
