2019 Graduation Remarks

On Friday, May 17th, 2019, the Department of Classical Studies celebrated the graduation of 12 newly-minted classicists at our departmental commencement ceremony. We instituted a new tradition to mark the occasion. For the first time, graduating students delivered remarks to gathered faculty, family, and friends. This year we were honored to hear from Francis “Frankie” James DiMento III, graduating in Ancient Greek & Latin with honors, and from Kennedy Blake Farrow, graduating cum laude in Classical Civilization. We are delighted that DiMento and Farrow have shared their remarks for publication here.
