The Department of Classical Studies has received a generous gift from Anna and Maria Stamboulidis to create an endowment to be used to enable our students to participate in cultural events. We will be using it, for example, to organize excursions to see productions of Greek drama, whether here in Ann Arbor, or at Stratford or in Chicago. We will make visits to the Detroit Institute of Art and the Toledo Museum for our students and faculty a regular supplement to our programs. We may even organize an occasional departmental visit to New York for both theater and museums. This endowment will enrich our students' lives both intellectually and emotionally, and we are very grateful.
