This groundbreaking project has been enthusiastically received at several state and national classics conferences. Read about the participation of our instructor and students in several Classics conferences.

Student comments

I am still amazed on a daily basis that an opportunity like this is available. Although I suppose it's theoretically possible to study Latin on your own, I know I couldn't make it very far without this kind of supported environment, most importantly having such quality teaching! Having your explanations, your kind corrections of our mistakes, your encouragement -- it's really as close to being in an actual classroom as I can imagine.

Isn't it just wonderful to still be this excited about learning! And it's so nice to be together with those who feel the same!
