Social Events

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.
