“Be honest and clear; give words their proper meaning. Avoid double-speak. Which is to say, be engaged in the only way that someone trained in the Classics can. This is now your moment.”

Madeline Bisbee

Undergraduate Honoree
B.A., Classics

Madeline Bisbee has been in the Classics department throughout her time at San Francisco State. She has participated in both the Classics Students Association as an officer from 2018-2020 and helped edit the student journal Pithos for the 2018-2019 year.
