Past Classes

  (Look at the class archive for more.)


The Psychology of Attraction in Splash 2015 (Nov. 21 - 22, 2015)
Come learn what governs who we're attracted to, who we like, and who we try for a happily ever after with. From love at first sight to opposites attract, discover what *really* rules our hearts (and brains). Disclaimer: due to the disparity in current research, this class will be forced to focus on heterosexual relationship patterns. Although many aspects may very well be generalisable to the LGBTQ+ community, there's no guarantee and all studies discussed were done on heterosexual couples.


Escape the Zodiac (Room Escape) in Splash 2015 (Nov. 21 - 22, 2015)
The concept is basic: you're locked in a room. The clock is running down, and fast. The only thing standing in the way of you and the key to escape is a series of increasingly complex puzzles. Think you can do it? This class will be part strategy, part escape. It's fast paced, but should be fairly low-stress. Teamwork is key, and speed is fairly important too. We promise nothing bad will happen if you can't get out!


Fake Girlfriends, Infinite Kisses, etc: The Thoughts of a Roman Poet in Splash 2014 (Nov. 22 - 23, 2014)
Check out one of Roman's craziest poets-- from mourning the death of a sparrow to love poetry dedicated to his fake (married) girlfriend, Catullus was frankly a little nuts. We'll look at his life (not a lot -- he died when he was 30), his girlfriend, and his poetry. A little bit of history and a little bit of Latin! Plus, your teachers may or may not be wearing togas and may or may not throw candy at you. This class will cover the basics of Catullus's life and literature, and dissect a (simplified) version of a Catullus poem in Latin.


The Psychology of Attraction in Splash 2014 (Nov. 22 - 23, 2014)
Come learn what governs who we're attracted to, who we like, and who we try for a happily ever after with. From love at first sight to opposites attract, discover what *really* rules our hearts (and brains). Note: much of this class is going to be based on heterosexual attraction (although not necessarily affection) due to the difference in information. Also, be prepared to have a few stereotypes completely destroyed.
