gvbernatoris latina academia mmxxiii
CAVSA LATET, VIS NOTISSIMA
We are approaching the presentation of student Varietas Projects on Saturday at 2 pm in Blackwell Auditorium ( 16 on the map and where we held the Opening Ceremony). The students have worked extremely hard on these projects and hope to demonstrate how much their grasp on the language has grown in their chosen proficiency. Though many of the performances are in Latin, we will offer descriptions for our non-Latin speaking/reading audience members.
We hope that you will join us for the performance as well as the short reception to follow from 3-4 pm in Birdsong Cafe. Projects that did not fit into the performance space will be displayed here. We ask that all guests remain in the cafe during the reception. Also, please, remember that the use or possession of an internet-enabled device by a student at this event will result in a dismissal from the academy. We thank you for your support and understanding. Finally, after the reception, students will return to the dorms to pack and prepare for our final banquet.
Those of you traveling from a distance might consider staying overnight in Ashland to be ready for checkout starting at 8:30 am on Sunday (more on that to follow). Also, there is parking around the building and in nearby lots around campus.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about this event.
Curate ut Valeatis,
