CLSAS hosts an annual conference every spring in the Washington, D.C. area. Alumni gather to network, attend workshops, and meet potential employers.
Two CLS alumni, Miriam and Ashley, have created a podcast for CLSAS members and CLS alumni. It is an open and honest conversation-based series surrounding language, studying abroad, and diversity.
CLSAS members gather for happy hours, language meet-ups, coffee, and other casual events hosted by CLSAS. Often times, events are free, subsidized, or are used as fundraisers for the organization.
