About the Program

CLAMO is our society’s very own mentoring program, developed and designed to support students studying the Classical Languages (Ancient Greek and/or Latin), at the University of Queensland.

Our mentors are here to assist you with any aspect of your Classical Languages studies, be it translations, grammar, conjugations or declensions, don’t be afraid to utilise our program.
