We exist to celebrate the culture and history of the classical world, with members from departments across the university, and sharing our love of all things Greek and Roman. In an environment restricted so heavily by Covid-19, we seek to bring the department and university together and provide a welcoming space for students across Royal Holloway to collaborate and thrive, whether you are on campus or at home.
We also hold weekly socials and welcome any newcomers, regardless of their knowledge of the classical world. One of our aims is to highlight how classics continues to be relevant today, yet this is not our sole focus; we provide a space for you to meet friendly, like-minded people who enjoy socialising and being actively engaged in the opportunities that university life provides. A brand new Discord server has been created, through which we will host virtual socials, games, discussions and at the forefront will be a place where students can meet like-minded people and form connections which through isolation have been a struggle to so many. The server is open to all and can be joined through the following link!
Membership Fee & Costs
£5 Standard Membership Fee
The society holds official socials for both members and non-members once a week. Our socials tend to be relaxing nights where we do activities like watch classically themed films, play games, and generally have fun in each other’s company. Naturally with Covid-19 restrictions the society socials will remain limited to virtual forums for the time being, however once safety has been established we will recommence in person socials. On occasion there will be weekend socials, which will be a bit more adventurous, as either a day of activities, or some sort of themed party or drinks night. We have an open mind and are happy to arrange a wide variety of socials and greatly value input and ideas from our members. So please do put forward any suggestions!
