Emily Tenney

Why Classics: I initially was interested in Classics because of the broad impact Latin and Greek culture had on Western civilization, but after learning to read Latin I found the literature so compelling. Classics allows you to study all the other humanities and simultaneously appreciate the complex, yet rewarding languages of the original text. 

Best Thing about Classics at UVA: Excellent faculty members who love what they teach. 

What's Next: Chemist at the National Laboratory Center in MD.
