Who: Prof. Nandini Pandey (Univ. Wisconsin, Madison), Ian Lockey (Friends Select K-12 School, Philadelphia), and two members of the Executive Committee of Eos, Devondra McMillan (The Walker School, Marietta, GA), and Prof. Mathias Hanses (Penn State).

In December 2015, San Francisco State University's (SFSU) Department of Classics completed its first initiation ceremony into
Eta Sigma Phi, Honorary Society for Classical Studies. Now recognized as the Iota Phi Chapter of Eta Sigma Phi, SFSU just completed its third initiation ceremony in December 2016, welcoming 11 new members into the chapter, which totals 36 members in just three semesters as an active chapter. The Iota Phi Chapter consists of both undergraduates and graduates enrolled not only as Classics majors, but also as History, Philosophy, and Biology majors, who are passionate about the study of Latin and Greek.
