Murphey Hall continues to be home for a number of accomplished undergraduates.
Rachel Mazzara has published a translation of Catullus poem 51 in the Denison University undergraduate Classics journal, Ephemeris. Rachel’s project was born as writing assignment in Ted Gellar-Goad’s spring Latin 204 course.
“She’s extremely bright and will make this department proud as she pursues a career in Classics,” said Prof. Gellar-Goad, who is now serving as a post-doctoral fellow at Wake Forest University after finishing his Ph.D. here.
Rachel, however, is not the only promising young talent in the department. She, Caitlin Hines, and Henry Ross were all inducted into the University’s Phi Beta Kappa chapter last spring. Further, the Classical Association of the Middle West and South honored Caitlin with a Manson A. Stewart Scholarship. One of six undergraduates recognized for being “outstanding young Classicists,” Caitlin will use the $1,000 award to further her studies in the department.
We congratulate these promising juniors for their great accomplishments!
