This is a Junior Classical League Sterling Pin and smaller than a dime. Most Universities have a JCL Chapter. JCL does not just mean Junior Classical League to Florida State University School. It means good competition, with great spirit, among friends. This competition allows us to learn from the past and relate it to the present. The Junior Classical League is not only about Latin, but also about an opportunity to better ourselves, while having fun, meeting friends, and excelling in competition. The last image shows the "JCL Logo". It also gives an incentive for Latin scholars to continue studying Latin to levels as high as Latin V and VI. Learning about the ancient Romans and Greeks is interesting and enlightening while also providing us with insights on today's society. JCL Creed We, the members of the Junior Classical League, covenant to hand on the torch of classical civilization in the modern world. We believe that an acquaintance with the civilization of Greece and Rome will help us understand and appraise this world of today, which is indebted to ancient civilization in its government and laws, literature, language and arts. We affirm the JCL experience develops responsibility, fosters brotherhood, promotes enthusiasm, encourages competition, inspires dedication, and enriches our total growth.
