Salvete omnes! We hope you enjoyed your visit to NJCL Convention in Ohio as much as we enjoyed hosting you. Our sixty-ninth annual convention was from March 9th to 11th. The theme was from Catullus V: “Soles occidere et redire possunt.” We had 25 OSCLers in attendance, and gained 21 slashers at this convention. Below are some highlights from our weekend in Columbus.
Two new committees were created for our chapter’s merchandise and website respectively. We held a fundraiser for The Sportula, a scholarship fund for Classics students, and donated $100. We won the only Ludi event held at OJCL conventions, napping. Now OSCL President, Tullus Dean, was a celebrity, especially in the eyes of our state’s biggest delegation, who is Tullus’s biggest fan. We introduced Queen of the Day at our convention for the first time. Congratulations to our winner, Bob McDonald.
