Welcome one and all to the Exeter University Classics Society!

We are a society dedicated to providing a means through which Classics students and anyone interested in Classics can meet up, socialise and participate in events both closely or loosely related to Classics. 2014/15 saw the society in its finest moments thus far, with the annual Classics Ball being a highlight in everyone's social calendar, along with an incredible trip to Sicily, and the critically acclaimed production of Sophocles' 'Ajax'.

The Classics Society's reputation has increased each year, owing to our wide range of social events such as the toga social, the trip abroad, and of course the annual ball. In addition, the Society has an active sports department, fielding successful netball, rounders, football and touch rugby teams.

We also work with the University Classics department to provide academic support to our members: this has mainfested itself in our Student Tutor Scheme, where Level III + language students offer to tutor other students in either Latin or Greek. Our academic efforts were recognised at the Guild Awards 2013, where we were highly commended in the Outstanding Academic Contribution Award.

Come get involved. 2016-17 is going to be very special indeed.
