Peer Mentor Program
Throughout the academic year, senior students who are majors in the department are available in IC 323 to help answer your questions and offer advice on a variety of things related to being a student in Classics including how to prepare for exams, what the overseas courses are like, and how you can get involved in BUAS (the undergraduate Classics club). All have experience in studying Latin and Greek as well and can help tutor you in those subjects. No appointment is necessary: just drop by IC 323 and see one of our peer mentors!
Peer mentor information for the 2017-2018 academic year will be posted in September.

Wondering which new Classics books are now in the library?
Click on “Catalogue” then the “New Titles” link on the right-hand side of the page to see newly acquired books in different areas of interest. For example, books on Greek and Roman history, as well as some works on archaeology, will mostly be under the DE-DG range with subjects such as women and family in the HQs; books on Latin and Greek language and literature can be found in the PAs. Other call number ranges to check include BF for Greek and Roman religion, and N, NA, and NB for Greek and Roman art.
