Today we had cookies with the president of Randolph-Macon College. He gave a heartfelt speech about the importance of the classics and the opportunities a liberal arts college affords students. Afterwards students received free shirts before we proceeded to compete in a riveting round of trivia. Classes continue like normal, providing a rigorous yet fun environment for developing Latin. Tomorrow, however, we will be taking a break from classes to go into Richmond to study ancient influences on modern architecture.
Speaking of architecture...
We took some time today to create sculptures and other works of art inspired by our respective provinces. Laughter, stories, and friendships were also being sculpted.
We also took the time to sit down and listen to a guest speaker, Dr. Amy Cohen, who talked about Greek dramas and the masks worn by ancient performers. She even brought in her own masks made for the performances her own classes put on. We have pictures but they're not yet ready, so tune in tomorrow to see them and read about our exploits in Richmond. One more big thanks to the President Robert Lindgren and Dr. Amy Cohen.
Tune in for field trips photos tomorrow, but for now, VALETE!!!
