The Department of French and Italian

Italian Placement Testing on 01/12 in HRH 2.106B @ 3:00pm

FIGSO meeting

Wed, August 31, 2011 | HRH 2.118 French and Italian Lounge

11:30 AM

Please join us in the HRH lounge for a FIGSO meeting at 11:30am on Wed. Aug. 31st. We will discuss our organization's projects for the 2011-2012 school year and appoint representatives. FIGSO--the French and Italian Graduate Student Organization--is led by us, the grad students of the department. In the past, our main projects have included organizing a graduate student conference and a French play, both of which take place in the spring. Beginning last spring, we also managed the French booth at Explore UT.

This year, we can take on many new projects or keep ourselves focused on the conference, play, and Explore UT. It's a new school year, and the possibilities are endless. Please come to the meeting with any ideas you might have.

Any student, new welcome to be a representative. In fact, we are hoping that many people will volunteer for a small administrative responsibility, diffusing the workload, and creating more collaborative leadership.
