This Tuesday (08/28/12) the LSA will have its own booth at the Student Involvement Expo during SDSU Welcome Week.
You are all invited to not only come stop by, but also participate, sit in the booth, and talk to interested students.

Hello dear ling grads and undergrads. The summer is coming to an end and we’re approaching the beginning of the Fall semester, which brings a fresh batch of new students to our program! In order to welcome them we have organized a post-orientation get together at State Street Grill, right by the Campus. It will also be a great opportunity to catch up and talk about our projects to come. So turn your student spirit back on and join us!
Thanks to our remaining funding from the Instructionally Related Activities fund, we will be having a banner made to be used for student organization tabling events such as Explore SDSU (Spring) and Welcome Week (Fall). We are investing these funds in hopes that a banner representative of our organization will attract students interested in linguistics and help popularize our organization.
