The Classics Graduate Student Association has been created to serve as a community of support and cooperation for graduate students currently matriculating in the Department of Classics at the University of Cincinnati by providing them with opportunities for travel study, scholarly research, collaboration, and community outreach. Its other main goal is to help Classics graduate students organize themselves in a well-functioning community. Among other initiatives, it has created individual and targeted mentorship for incoming students. Finally, it can serve as an advocating body for graduate students within the UC Classics community.

  • Semi-annual invited guest lecturers
