CLASSOC offers Classics students and those interested in the Ancient World some awesome social events and academic support throughout the year.
Consider joining if...
You’re interested in meeting and greeting the Classics department staff, postgrads and other undergrads over drinks and fun events. Because classes are way more fun when you’ve all been drinking together, Hermes’ honour.
The Annual CLASSOC Quiz Night: Our most popular event of the year! Everyday trivia with a Classical twist. Hosted by the Shilling Club in second semester.
Symposium/Toga Night: ‘cause nobody got down like the Romans! Our first event of the year is hosted at Joe’s Garage, Bush Inn.
Movie Nights: We promise bronzed hotties, terrible visual effects and classic (sorry) dialogue. Ongoing throughout the year.
Guest Lectures: We have previously hosted the famous Christchurch Wizard (a mega Classics fan), local artists and leading academics from around the world in conjunction with the Christchurch Classics Association.
Ongoing: We also offer light-hearted activities throughout the year to keep us in touch with how the Ancients rolled, such as Archery and Capture the Golden Fleece.
