1994 Major: Classical Studies

How has being a Classical Studies graduate from Duke helped shape you personally and/or professionally?

"It has been a great foundational base of knowledge. It has reinforced my love of the history, art, philosophy, and religious traditions of western civilization – – which of course underscores everything we encounter in modern life as well. I still feel the echoes of our Greek and Ronan’s ancestors every day."

What advice would you give students in Duke's Classical Studies programs? 

"Study at the Centro!!!!"
