Baylor University's Classics department will host Latin Day to increase awareness and appreciation for the Latin language and Roman culture from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 27, at the Marrs McLean Science building on the Baylor campus.
The day's events will include a costume contest based on Roman characters, a verb parsing bee, and a Roman version of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire," a quiz competition with classics-themed questions and scenes from Plautus' comedy "Mostellaria."
The top three students in the Roman costume contest will receive a book or a gift certificate from Barnes and Noble.
All students and teachers who come to Latin Day receive a commemorative t-shirt and free lunch in Baylor's campus dining centers.
