For our third annual Classics Marathon, dozens of students and faculty gathered over almost 10 hours to hear and participat in a recitation of Vergil's Aeneid. Professor Mulligan kicked off the event around 11 a.m. with arma virumque cano. An uninterrupted succession of students and faculty followed throughout the day, with reading wrapping up around 7 p.m. Thank you to all who made the day such a moving experience!
