Want to help out?


Due to the shortfall created by decreased state funding and rising inflation, the Department of Classics could use your gift.  Donations to our operating budget are always welcome, and will go towards the daily operations of the department as well as the various lectures we undertake each year and necessary tools, like our departmental membership in the Classical Association of the Middle West and South or our subscription to L’Annee Philologique.  If you would like to contribute to our general fund, please mail your check (made out the Marshall University Foundation) to:

Marshall University Foundation, Inc

519 John Marshall Dr.

Huntington, WV 25703


Be sure to write “Department of Classics” on the memo-line, so they know where to earmark the funds.
