David Wright - 2015 (CL)David Wright

Hometown: Denver, CO. Part of the reason David chose Classics as his major was when he answered a question right; Professor Owen Cramer responded with, “You win the prize- 15 pounds of mustache wax!” He has enjoyed the personal relationship with the entire faculty, who are “brilliant and inspire intellectual curiosity in various academic fields.” His dream job would be a Classics Professor by day, and an Antiquity Brewing Company owner by night.  His thesis will explore alcohol and inebriation in the ancient world and its relation to a sense of place.
