After teaching a wide variety of courses in history, humanities and Latin for several years at Fordham Preparatory School, Adelphi University and Dowling College, in 1980 Dean Louzonis came to St. Francis College as Assistant Dean for Academic Affairs. In this capacity he served as dean of the evening college, director of the Experiential Learning Program, a member of the Honors Council and advisor to all students pursuing the non-traditional B.S. in Special Studies degree. After receiving the St. Francis College Alumni Association Distinguished Administrator Award in 1999, he was named Associate Dean of Enrollment Services. At that time he was also appointed Adjunct Associate Professor of Latin and re-instituted the study of Latin at the College after an absence of more than a quarter of a century. His primary academic interests are classical and medieval Latin literature, as well as Greek and Roman history. In recent years he has taught courses in Greek and Roman Epic, Classical Mythology and Greek Drama within the English department as well as periodically serving as a book reviewer for Choice, a publication of the American Library Association. As a teaching administrator, he is grateful for the opportunity to conduct his classes in the small, personal settings which are characteristic of academic life at St. Francis College.
