As we head into the new month (and more exciting events; see below!) I thought I would do a quick recap of February and everything the society has achieved so far. We hosted a huge variety of events last month: we kicked off our calendar with a ‘Meet the Committee’ icebreaker, where we got to meet and chat with students from all over UoL; we have hosted several pastoral well-being symposiums and one POC safe-space event, spaces which have provided a safe and healthy environment for all types of discussions between members; we held our first monthly discussion group, in which we spent over an hour debating the relevance of Latin and Ancient Greek to a Classical education; and our inaugural academic talk with Dr Nandini Pandey attracted nearly one hundred attendees from all over the world! Just a few nights ago, we held LCoC’s first ever social which took the form of a hilarious presentation night, with “Who would win in a fight: Remy (Ratatouille) VS Achilles?” being my personal favourite (creds to Uma!). All of these events have been overwhelmingly positive and fun, and I am so excited for us to bring this energy with us into March. Thank you to all the other members of the committee for being so hard-working, inspirational and supportive: Asyia, Reyna, Tash, Marley and Mai — you are amazing! I can’t wait to see everyone soon :-)
