Unexpected applications of a classical education

So...I walk into Norlin library the other day after my Greek art and archaeology class, and what do I see?That's right. Pergamene columns! And guttae!
When I saw the columns I was pleased with myself for recognizing the type of capital being used. When I noticed the guttae I was pleased with the architect for the classical citation. (Mind you, I'm not sure what the guttae are doing inside the building, but even so: cool.)
The Women's Studies cottage, of course, uses Corinthian capitals.

Who knew classics had so many...uh, "practical" applications?
