Aaron Suiter, Class of 2015
Major: Classical Languages, Math, Chemistry, Philosophy (Undecided)
Career interests: Adventurer, Vintner, Chef, Landscape Architect
Favorite ancient text: Homer's Odyssey (trite, I know)
Favorite ancient author: Cicero. Who is more sophisticated in their language?
Favorite ancient ritual: Eleusinian Mysteries (the name says it all)
Favorite modern-day salute to antiquity: I like that gladiator sandals/heels have trended these past few years. I'd like to see more classically inspired fashion (e.g. mini-capes and floppy hats for men)
Favorite thing about the Carleton Classics Department: We have great professors, we read the best literature ever, and sometimes taking classics makes me feel like a 19th century aristocrat.
Favorite Classics class: I loved Latin Prose with Kathryn Steed. The people in the class were hilarious, the text, Cicero's Pro Caelio, was exceptional, and Kathryn made it so fun to learn.
