How sweet it is. Sixteen Rutgers undergraduate majors in Classics received their BA degrees in commencement ceremonies on 21 and 22 May 2008—one of the largest groups in memory.
Congratulations to departmental majors Niti Bagchi, Nicholas Bendick, Thomas Biggs, Danielle Bonner, Shaam Brown, Jacqueline Cross, David Danbeck, Andrew Dodemaide, Ruthann Gerrard, Deborah Grau, Efstratios Monafis, Jesse Rosen, Alexander Smith, Michael Sobota, Jeffrey Ulrich, and Theo Webster.
Biggs, Danbeck, Dodemaide, Gerrard, Smith, Sobota and Ulrich (see pictures below) also received departmental honors for their senior thesis work.
Plans for this year’s seniors include graduate degree study in Classics at Columbia (Sobota) and Yale (Biggs, Danbeck).
Projections for the Class of 2009 show at least eighteen majors and as many minors in Rutgers Classics.
