Friends of Antiquity, a society sponsored jointly by the Discipline of Classics and Ancient History and the Alumni Friends of the University of Queensland, is a group of people who believe that learning should not be confined to the classroom. The group provides an informal social environment in which all lovers of history, art and literature can gather to share their enjoyment of antiquity with like-minded enthusiasts.
 
The society is open to people from all walks of life, from within and outside the University of Queensland community. Its members are able to participate in lectures and presentations on various aspects of the ancient world; to take part in a varied social program and to engage in fund-raising activities which will enable Classics and Ancient History to offer scholarships to deserving students, attract scholars of international repute and gain new acquisitions for the RD Milns Antiquities Museum. Also, the society donates funds to the RD Milns Classics and Ancient History Perpetual Endowment Fund.
 
Further information is available on the Friends of Antiquity website.
