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.  


Ever wanted to study abroad in Rome? UGA's Rome Program gives you the opportunity! Five to six weeks of summer study in the heart of Rome, Italy, with all courses taught (in English) by University of Georgia faculty.
