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!

Bruin Linguists.

Winter 2015 Newsletter

[wɛlcʌm bæk bɹuɪnz]

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!

In that regard, we’d like to announce that the website will be up and running again some time around October 1st–so please stay tuned! Also, we are working to plan several events (some of which are co-hosted by the Cog. Sci. department) and will post any updates here and on our Facebook forum.
