July 14, 2011

July 14, 2011 — Latin students in the Summer Language Institute at the University of Virginia were given a special challenge during the inaugural scavenger hunt: Translate "The Good Ol' Song" into Latin. Ecce!

Bonum antiquum carmen Wahoowae –
Canemus iterum iterumque.
Placet nostris animis tepefacitque sanguinem
Audire clamandum mugiendumque. 
Venimus ex antiqua Virginia,
Ubi omnia sunt clara laetaque.
Iungamus manus clamemusque…
… pro cara antiqua UVa!
