Ancient languages teach students about modern life

NATCHITOCHES – Some chose to study Greek and Latin for a challenge. Others wanted to try something different or apply it to something later in life, like translating medieval documents or understanding medical terminology.Whatever their reason, about 30 students are studying the ancient languages each semester at the Louisiana Scholars' College at Northwestern State University. And they're coming away with lessons on modern civilization as well as how to conjugate verbs.The classes are offered…See More

Profile Information

Hometown/Institution:
Northampton, MA / University of Massachusetts-Amherst
Role in the Classics Classroom (real or virtual):
student, Classics supporter
About Me:
I am a University of Massachusetts-Amherst alumnus with BA degrees in English and Classics. I am currently employed as an intern at Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers and the love the work and the contribution to the classics society involved with it.
Favorite on-line spots for the Classics:
Latin Library, Perseus, the Loeb Classical Library section on Amazon
Favorite on-line spots for education:
I prefer books but I've met success using Jstor as far as research goes
Best/worst computer-related classroom happening:
I went through college without my own laptop, renting them from the library when needed. I was careful about saving my work, using a flash drive and my email as places to store my files when in the drafting process of papers. I remember my junior year, spring semester, I was in a class dedicated to Ovid and we had a final paper due the last day of finals. I miraculously had no finals or they were all finished early enough that I decided to take my time on this paper, going slow and really making sure everything I said needed to be said, and that the content was legible.
I was on the 13th floor of the Dubois library, in the Davis Room, a room dedicated to classics students, lined with related books and with a replica of the Venus di Milo in the corner. The last rays of the setting sun were bleeding through the red curtains of the white room as I stretched my hands over my head in a tired triumph: I believed I had written an exceptional paper on Ovid and what perhaps proved to be my best.
Now, there were no printer in the Davis room and the laptops on loan were not hooked up to them so I went through my flash drive/email routine to print the paper out in the library basement fourteen floors below me. By accident I had left the laptop running as I shut it and packed it away, making my way downstairs.
The return lady scolded me for not wrapping up the cord for the charger as I put it away when I returned it and then sent me off. I headed to a computer to print my paper and logged into my email. No paper. I scratched my head, panicking a little, then plugged in my flash drive. There was the file, and I opened it. I started to sweat when I found a list of quotes marked up with the strike-through function, acknowledging that they had been used in a paper, but there was no paper. Looking at the computer clock I noticed I had twenty minutes until my paper was due. I ran up to the return lady.
She scolded me again as I approached, this time for not turning off the computer as I handed it back. Disregarding her chiding I demanded the same computer and, perhaps reluctantly, she retrieved it for. Without leaving the desk I turned it on to search for my paper. Maybe, I thought, it was not too late.
Alas, it was. The lady at the counter now kindly explained that the laptops have their memory frozen to a certain date. Any information gathered on the computer subsequently would be erased upon powering off. Was she being kind, I wondered now as she explained, or did her smile spell "V-I-C-T-O-R-Y" in the face of my defeat? Regardless, I slumped back to a computer, wrote a sob email to my professor explaining my situation and the delay of my paper, and rewrote it. I've never believed in "too careful" since.
