Ides of March Reenactment: March 27, 2013
The Greek and Roman Studies Department at Rhodes works with a number of other programs and projects to expand the range and variety of opportunities for students to learn about the ancient world.
Students from the Greek and Roman Studies have worked with local schools regularly for the past eighteen years. From 1997-2010, GRS faculty and students sponsored a program at Bruce Elementary every Monday after school. The program at Bruce introduced young students to the contributions that ancient Mediterranean cultures have made to the development of Western civilization through games, songs, and artistic engagement. We hope to restart the program when we once again find a local partner.
For the last thirty years, classics have led the humanities in the application of computer technology. Because graduates are increasingly expected have attained a significant level of expertise in the use of digital information by the time they graduate, the Greek and Roman Studies program is committed to making extensive use of computer-based resources and helping students become familiar and comfortable with the Internet as a medium of scholarly interaction.
