Legends of Isla Vista: Student Creative Projects for CLAS40, Greek Mythology

Myths are stories of special importance to a community, which hold that community together by expressing shared values and ideals. In Spring 2017, students in Classics 40, Greek Mythology, were invited to adapt a Greek myth to articulate what Isla Vista means to them. In this video, one student describes her project and explains how it captures something truly meaningful about Isla Vista.

The Classics Department sends congratulations to all our Classics 2017 graduating seniors!
