Classics classes are lively and dynamic, but the learning and the camaraderie of classists extend well beyond classroom walls.
Recently, students from Randolph and two other colleges travelled to Belmonte in Sabina, Italy for the Archaeological Conservation Institute. They stayed at the Centro di Conservazione Archeologica, a 13th-century Franciscan Convent atop a hill overlooking the beautiful Sabine countryside.
The group participated in the restoration of a Roman mosaic, an opus sectile floor, and frescos under the supervision of Roberto Nardi, a renowned conservator, and visited archeological sites and museums.
Periodically, students travel to the Centro di Conservazione Archeologica for the annual Archaeological Conservation Institute, a three-week long, three- credit course. Post-course trips take students to see Naples, Sardinia, Venice, and other destinations.
Randolph College Latin students work in a classroom at the Gifted Opportunities Center of RS Payne Elementary School, teaching Latin to 3rd-, 4th-, and 5th-graders.
