As part of the Washington University Club program, Classes Without Quizzes brings some of the university’s leading faculty to cities across the country. It is one of the most popular club events.

On Oct. 17, 2010, alumni and friends explored ancient Egypt at the Discovery Times Square Exposition in New York with the help of the university’s premier ancient Egyptian scholar. Sarantis Symeonoglou, professor of art history and archaeology in Arts & Sciences, gave a presentation about the artifacts and life of the pharaohs. His lecture was followed by a tour of the exhibition, Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs. The exhibit featured more than 130 artifacts from the tomb of Tutankhamun and other ancient Egyptian sites.
