World Languages Day 2019

A glimpse of our first World Languages Day... 

We were delighted to represent Arabic, Chinese, Czech, Danish, French, German, Hindi-Urdu, Italian, Persian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish for our inaugural event! We hope to represent even more of the languages offered at UT next year. 

Thank you to our amazing faculty, staff, and students who helped make this event possible!
