Clarksville, TN – The Austin Peay State University (APSU) Honors Program will hold a timely virtual panel discussion this week that examines how people can think more critically and carefully to be informed voters in the current political climate.
Clarksville, TN – If you were born after 1993 – which is the case for most Austin Peay State University (APSU) students – then you’ve only known a world where the United Kingdom is a part of the European Union (EU).
That fact can seem trivial, especially if you’re living 4,000 miles away in Tennessee, so when Great Britain announced it would be the first country to leave the EU – a move known as “Brexit” – many people on campus and in the Clarksville area reacted with mild curiosity.
Austin Peay State University (APSU)
Clarksville, TN – Dr. Tim Winters, Austin Peay State University (APSU) Latin professor, raised his face to the warm, bright sky and said, “It’s a good day to sacrifice an eagle.”
Nearby, a golden eagle (or maybe just a turkey-shaped piñata, painted gold) was placed on an altar in the center of campus for the annual Homecoming sacrifice.
Clarksville, TN – In the summer of 1964, during a long bus trip to Illinois, two rival Latin students ended up sharing the same seat. Kaye Phillips, from Clarksville High School, and Grady Warren, from Hillsboro High School, had spent the past year trying to best each other at Junior Classical League (JCL) competitions around the state.
“At the state JCL convention earlier that year, it was the only time I ever tied her,” Grady said recently.

Austin Peay State University Latin/geology student Elizabeth Wilcox headed to Europe for Roman site excavation
Clarksville, TN – On a sweltering afternoon in Tallil, Iraq, a U.S. Army soldier named Elizabeth Wilcox paused on her way to the gym to examine what looked like seashells on the desert floor.
Centuries ago, the Euphrates River had flowed through the area, surrounding a nearby stone structure some scholars believe was the Tower of Babel, but that channel of the river had long since turned to dust.
Clarksville, TN – Being able to speak a second language is something worth bragging about, but can it help you get a job? According to the website topuniversities.com, graduates with degrees in foreign languages “have long been in demand across many sectors of business and industry.”
Clarksville, TN – The Austin Peay State University Classics Program continues to grow, both in student enrollment and in its national reputation, and to take advantage of this recent momentum, the program has launched a national scholarly publication, Philomathes: A Journal of Undergraduate Research in Classics.
The new online journal will publish original research by undergraduate students in any area of Classics.
Clarksville, TN – If you grew up in Clarksville and studied Latin, chances are you know Kaye or Grady Warren. The couple taught Latin in the Clarksville-Montgomery County School System for more than 40 years, and in that time they became one of the area’s biggest advocates for Classical Studies.
Just last summer, one of their former students—Austin Peay State University freshman Alexander Kee—earned first place in Advanced Latin Grammar at the National Junior Classical League convention in San Antonio, Texas.
Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University, which turns 90 next year, recently experienced a late growth spurt. Earlier this week, the campus grew by about 10 acres when the school finally closed on property previously owned by the Jenkins and Wynne auto dealership.
The $8.8 million purchase marks one of the largest expansions in the University’s history, and it now connects the 182-acre College Street campus with downtown Clarksville.
