Christina Westpheling graduated from UGA in 2011 with an A.B. in Classical Culture and Art/Art History. She has since started working at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. She stays busy but had a chance to describe her life after college and how she has been using the Classics.


While many students get the opportunity to study abroad, few have had the opportunity to get as totally immersed as Chad Wisinger, a senior double majoring in Classics and Religious Studies at UGA, and currently studying at Heidelberg University in Heidelberg, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. He wants to go on to eventually teach and write on theology. He's had a truly unique experience so far and was nice enough to spend part of his evening (our early afternoon) sharing what it's like to study Classics so far from home.

Scientists and art historians may seem like an odd pairing.


But put them together in a room with a 2,000-year-old Roman sculpture, some scientific equipment and the goal of figuring how it originally looked, and camaraderie abounds.  

It's another new year, and we're already in full swing with classes and activities that include our Archaeological Institute of America lectures, Graduate Student Classics Colloquia, visiting lecturers, Reacting to the Past, and more! We would like to take a moment to thank all of you who make it possible for our students to grow and explore the world of Classics through your generous gifts to our various scholarship and assistantship funds.  

Every student, at some point, wonders (or, at least, should wonder!) what he or she will do after graduation.  Hayley Platt graduated from UGA with her A.B. in Theatre and Classical Culture in May 2012, and life hasn't slowed down since. She has already been to Italy and back again and hasn't stopped studying, but we were able to catch up with Hayley to ask her some questions and find out what she's been doing.
