forsan et haec olim meminisse iuvabit - Virgil, Aeneid 1.203
We greatly value the relations that we have with alumni, and feature alumni on our website to show current and prospective students what our alumni have gone on to do. Please let us know if you would like to be featured on this page.
Every year we have lectures, receptions and special events to which alumni are warmly invited. These include the annual Housman Lecture.
Alumni offer attend our summer schools; in summer 2020 we are offering two online summer schools: Ancient Philosophy from 13-17 July; and Homer from 3-7 August 2020. For a full list of events see our News & Events page.
We are very keen for alumni to come and give careers advice to our students at one of our undergraduate careers evenings: if you'd like to do this please get in touch. And if you can come and talk to current students about your job, and give them some tips, we'd be very pleased to hear from you.
We welcome donations from alumni to support the work of the Department, including the Stephen Instone Travel Award, a fund which was set up in memory of Stephen Instone (1954-2009), which enables undergraduate students to travel to sites of Classical interest.
Alumni can keep abreast of Departmental news by reading the Departmental Newsletter.
