Meet people, do stuff.
Bacchae (Classics)

Salve! Got a growing interest in Classics, Classical Studies, Classical Archaeology or Ancient History? We’re the society for you!

Salve omnes! We’re the Classics Society! Our aim is to promote Classics, Classical Studies, Classical Archaeology and Ancient History at the University of St Andrews. You don’t have to be pursuing a classics degree to join – we’re open to all with an interest! Perhaps you might even be interested why the University has a Greek motto but a Latin one for the town. 

We aim to put on events ranging from our monthly pub quizzes to test if you know your Homer from your Homer Simpson (among some more broad general knowledge, never fear!) to our Symposia, arranging for a member of the Classics department to talk about their recent research projects in a casual environment!

In the past we have also run games nights, and drama performances, including the student-produced CLC Live, where of course Caecilius was live in person! If any of that interested you, come to one of our events! We’d love to see you there!


Memberships for 2024-25 will be available in September.
