Current Student News

Our students lead a dizzying life of study, work, and play. We can’t feature all of them here, but we want to praise their achievements, one and all. Please check out our Newsletter for more current undergraduate news.

Katie Liptak

Katie is a sophomore in Calhoun majoring in Classics. She is a Communication and Consent Educator and works with the Reproductive Justice Action League at Yale. Katie also works at the Planned Parenthood in New Haven whenever she can. Last summer, Katie joined Professor Andrew Johnston and a few other Yale students at the Gabii Project, an excavation site outside of Rome. When she isn’t studying Classics, Katie likes to watch reality television and talk about the Western canon.

Sherry Lee

Sherry is a junior in the Department planning to major in Classics. She is an opinion columnist for the Yale Daily News, teaches for Yale Splash, and is involved in the Yale Political Union and the Party of the Left. She works as a curatorial intern in the Ancient Art Department of the YUAG and has edited the Yale Helicon. She is a committee member for the Medusa Mythology Exam, an international mythology competition, and is the current Director of the Yale Certamen, a Latin quiz bowl contest.
