Students who excel in the study of Greek and/or Latin after two semesters are eligible for induction, upon the recommendation of faculty members, into the Classics honor society Eta Sigma Phi, a nationwide student organization that promotes the study of Classics. Consult the undergraduate advisor for details.
Faculty nominate students for The Robert E. Dengler Classics Grant-in-Aid. This is awarded each spring to the year’s “outstanding” student majoring in any area of Classical Studies. The Robert F. Dengler Classics Prize, established in honor of a long-time member of the Department of Classics faculty, is awarded to the student who has compiled the most outstanding academic record in any area of Classical Studies in the year of graduation.
The prize includes a modest cash award and a copy of the commemorative volume compiled by his colleagues in honor of Dr. Dengler.
