College Night at the Getty Villa
Salvete Discipuli! (That's Latin for "Hello students!")

Immerse yourself in the art and culture of ancient Greece and Rome during this special evening of art, music, food, and fun at the Getty Villa just for college students. Come dressed in your best toga!

• Check out the Museum's collection of ancient Greek, Roman and Etruscan art and our latest special exhibition Roman Mosaics across the Empire.

• Take a closer look at objects dating back thousands of years on a curator-led gallery tour, or get a peek at the work of conservators who handle ancient masterpieces and prepare them for public viewing.

• Test your knowledge of the ancient world with Greco-Roman Certamen (Jeopardy!-style trivia game) or a scavenger hunt.

• See Roman reactors from Legio VI Victrix decked out in their custom-made costumes, shields, and armor.

• Have your portrait drawn by a caricature artist and make a party wreath from the leaves of the Villa's olive trees.
