ARE YOU GOING TO THE PICNIC?

 

Food, music, games....it is always a lot of fun. It is a wonderful opportunity to see our faculty in a setting other than the third floor of the Humanities Building. Some of them dance really well! Come shake a leg with your professors or join them at the grill to prepare the burgers! Bring your guitar, or your favorite music , catch up with your fiends from the department! Toss a ball at the basketball goal! Celebrate yours and your friends' growing expertise in differnt languages. Applaud the budding polyglots!

The 2014 Annual Picnic was held on Friday, April 24th from 3-5p.m. at the Intramural Field Pavilion. Besides, fun, food and games, the picnic included an informal awards ceremony to recognize the recipients of the departmental scholarships as well as outstanding students at different levels.

Needless to say, like always, this year's picnic too was smashing success! Besides hamburgers, fresh off the grill, we enjoyed dishes from all over the world prepared by FLL faculty members. Attendees savored tortilla española from Spain, quiches from France, aloo gobhi from India and many other dishes from all over the world! Be sure to join us for the next picnic. You do not want to miss out on all the fun!
