Computer Science Workshop

Hey Bruin Linguists!!

 

Please check out a programming skills/computer science workshop that we’re offering to UCLA undergraduate and graduate students on Valentine’s Day weekend! What better romantic way to spend the days than with your darling computer, interactive+hands-on coding experience, and snacks? Check it out up above in the CS Workshop tab!

 

Don’t forget that the SCULC deadline is also fast approaching on February 15th. Check the tab above for more info!

 

Lastly, graduate student panel is this week on Wednesday in the usual spot, Campbell 2122 6:00-7:30 pm. Come on by and ask some great questions!

 

Good luck on finals, bruins!

 

Best,

Bruin Linguists

Week 4 and 5 updates

Dear Bruin Linguists,

Thanks to all of you for coming by to the ASL workshop. Many thanks for Hands On! for introducing us to the world of ASL and Deaf culture. Please check them out on Facebook for more information.

Midterm season is coming up, but stay strong! Come by this week’s study hall in Campbell Hall 2122, 6:00-7:30 pm to work on your homework or get some help studying.

Our next meeting on 2/4 will feature graduate students Megan Risdal, Deborah Wong, and Lauren Winans as they come by for a Q&A to discuss a few topics such as (1) how graduate life is different from undergraduate life, (2) responsibilities in graduate school, (3) how writing a thesis is like, etc. Check out the Facebook event, which has more information about our panelists: https://www.facebook.com/events/775272715898563/

Lastly, check out above where it says “SCULC 2015″ for more information about the Southern California Undergraduate Linguistics Conference, and how you can submit your work for presentation!

Hope to see you all at our next few meetings!

Best,
Bruin Linguists.

Fall is here, and BLing is already dipping its toes in the academic waters!

This week, we tabled both the Enormous Activities Fair (affectionately called “E-A-F” on campus) and the Humanities Welcome. We got to meet a lot of new majors, and then spend time with some of you during our post-Hum. Welcome open house in Campbell Hall–which was an absolute blast for us!! Later this week–Friday, on Bruin Walk, to be exact–we will be tabling the World Languages Day event hosted by Le Circle Francophone, so stop by and get your “passport” stamped!

Also, don’t forget that our first meeting is October 15th at 6 p.m. in Campbell Hall 2122. Meetings take place every EVEN week and continue through the quarter–so be there or be square!

Until next time, stay updated on what’s happening with BLing here and on our Facebook page. See you soon, Bruin linguists!
