Lucius Sergius Catilina (108-62 BCE), commonly referred to by his cognomen as “Catiline,” was a high-born Roman politician. Unobtrusively successful during the early phase of his career (the cursus honorum), he repeatedly failed in his bid for Rome’s highest office, the consulship.

Not much is known about Catiline, as our primary sources are the speeches and letters by the Roman orator and politician Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43) and The Catilinarian Conspiracy by the Roman historian Gaius Sallustius Crispus (86-34).

What lessons can be learned from studying The Catiline Conspiracy?

Eureka Alumni from this program have received admission offers to Stanford University, Yale University, Brown University, Columbia University, University of Chicago, Amherst College, and other top US universities.

Alumni from this program have gone off to pursue majors in Economics, English Literature, and Applied Mathematics.

The research experience and skills students receive at the Eureka Program have helped students win prestigious awards in the Latin Oratory and Literature Contests of the National Junior Classical League Convention. Some alumni from this program have also received eminent recognition for their work with Classics Studies, such as getting their work published in The Concord Review, a journal with a 5% acceptance rate.

Many students from this program are also very engaged in their communities, starting Latin oratory societies and even self-designing a Latin curriculum for 30 younger students. One alumni even created a website where Latin aficionados can publish their own works on the Classics.
