Eta Sigma Phi
Welcome to Tufts' Iota Pi chapter of Eta Sigma Phi, Honorary Society for Classical Studies
Supervisor: J. Matthew Harrington
President: Isabel Kreeger
Eta Sigma Phi is the national Classics honor society for undergraduate students.
Here at Tufts the Iota Pi chapter sponsors events for Classics Majors, public
lectures on Classical subjects, and various social and educational events for
members of the Tufts community who are interested in Greece, Rome, and the ancient world.
On a national level the organization sponsors students for study abroad programs,
hosts a convention for Classics undergraduates, and promotes interest in the study of
Classical languages. The national organization was founded in 1914 and our chapter
was founded in 2014.
Students are eligible for membership if they have completed two semesters of
either Greek or Latin with honors (B+ or higher) grades. Members are also expected
to maintain these grades as they continue their studies. New members are initiated
twice a year at a ceremony put on by the current membership. Meetings for members
are held once a week in Eaton Hall.
Our current executive board consists of:
Prytannis (President): Isabel Kreeger
Hyparchos (Vice President): Celia Johnston
Grammateus (Secretary): Setenay Mufti
Chrysophylax (Treasurer): Claire Mieher
Our faculty adviser is Professor Harrington.
