Shamrocks Attend 5th Annual Copley Latin Day at U of M
The 5th Annual Copley Latin Day is a free event that the Classics Department at the University of Michigan puts on in order to promote the study of Latin, reach out to high school students, and show them the different facets of the study of the ancient world at U of M. It involves lectures by professors of Greek, Latin and Classics Civilization and a series of mini sessions run by professors and graduate students that are interactive. Some of the topics this year include Roman law and its relationship to ours, ancient anatomy as spectacle, Roman city government, funerary monuments, an exploration of ancient papyri, and a tour of the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology.
More than 100 Catholic Central students took part in the day.
“Teach Me Goodness, Discipline, and Knowledge” is the motto of the Basilian Fathers and the sacred mission of Catholic Central High School. For ninety years, the graduates of Catholic Central have made a positive impact locally, nationally, and around the world.
