WHO WE ARE
The Harvard Classics Club was founded in 1885 as the Harvard Classical Club by some people who clearly didn't know how many times people would ask us about Beethoven. Today's club carries on their tradition of Herculean hunkiness, Ovidian wit, Sallustian pessimism, and Bacchic revelry. We welcome people from all academic backgrounds and interests. Our members consist of everyone from Classics thesis writers buried in Greek syntax to freshmen who took some Latin in high school to a guy who ate pizza once and liked it. We offer great advice if you're thinking about classics as a concentration and even better advice on important life questions, like how to tie a toga and whether it's a good idea to leave a seasoned fish in the sun for three months and eat it. So come join us! New members are encouraged to join at any time. Board position applications go out in late spring. You can sign up for our e-mail list here.
