Department of Classics

Latin Day

Every Spring the Department hosts a huge event for area high school Latin teachers and their students. Now in its 34th year, Vermont Latin Day is a bacchanal of skits, displays, recitations, and Scholars Bowl-type of competitions in Latin grammar and syntax. Over 1,000 area high school students attend. The Governor of Vermont issues a proclamation (in Latin and English) to recognize the whole week in which Latin Day occurs as Vermont Latin Week. UVM Classics students serve as hosts and helpers for a day of fun and foolery.
