SJC Adopts a New Motto

By Allison Kamel

Anyone who took SJC 100 and Freshmen Year Experience knows SJC’s motto: Esse non videri. The motto means “to be, not to seem.”

However, as many other changes take place on campus, there has been a decision to change the motto. More and more professors are noticing a trend in the papers submitted by students. College students seem to have very poor knowledge of how to correctly use grammar, punctuation and spelling.

Because SJC is a college that prides itself on having literate students, this issue has not caesar nonbeen taken lightly. It is with this issue in mind and a new dedication towards grammar that the new motto has been chosen.

The new motto is as follows: Caesar non supra grammaticos. This means “”the Emperor is not above the grammarians.”
