Eta Sigma Phi & Classics Club

Eta Sigma PhiEta Sigma Phi is the national honorary collegiate society for students of Latin and/or Greek. Members are elected by local chapters which have been chartered by the national Society. The purposes of the Society, in the words of its Constitution, are "to develop and promote interest in classical study among the students of colleges and universities; to promote closer fraternal relationship among students who are interested in classical study, including inter-campus relationship; to engage generally in an effort to stimulate interest in classical study, and in the history, art, and literature of ancient Greece and Rome."

The UGA chapter of Eta Sigma Phi welcomes all students of Classical languages in good academic standing to be a part of our honor society. We are involved in Classical activities and lectures on campus, and we promote fellowship between Classics students and their professors. Our chapter also strives to have a positive impact on our community through a variety of service activities.

Membership:

Membership is limited to students who have completed at least 2 courses in Latin or Greek and have maintained a B average in these ancient language courses. New members have a choice between a one-time $40.00 initiation fee for active membership in the national organization (including a certificate and a subscription to Nuntius) or a $10.00 local membership fee without any of the national benefits. Graduate students are welcome to inquire about associate membership. Please pay your dues to our treasurer at one of our meetings or seal your dues in a clearly labeled envelope and give it to one of the other officers..
