The first cool days of fall always fill me with a sense of nostalgia. They bring back memories of past first days of school and the nervous excitement of starting something new. As we get ready welcome the school year and whatever it may bring, we’re also busy working to put together OLAS’ plans for a successful quarter. Like always, we are looking forward to seeing new faces at our meetings and events! We have a few welcoming events planned for the next upcoming weeks before we really start to get into the thick of our programming. Come meet us!
Oh Spring…. the final quarter in our academic year and also time to deliver our two big events! We’ve only got a few weeks left to practice our performances for the cultural show, and then we get our chance to show it off. Later in the quarter we’re co-hosting our Latin American Policy Forum, for which we’ve invited politicians from all over Latin America and Chicago to come share their experiences. Both promise to be great!
Winter quarter begins on the 7th and with winter quarter starting this also means that OLAS is about to kick it into high gear. Winter Quarter marks the beginning of practice for the OLAS cultural show. This is something we are very very very excited about. We have our first event Friday of first week, 1/11/2013. The Cultural Show Study Break to sign up for dances and to volunteer will be held in the McCormick Tribune Lounge @ 7:30pm.
Welcome Back!! We’re three weeks into the fall term of the 2012-2013 school year here @ UChicago. So far OLAS has been busy, busy, busy. We’ve started off the term welcoming both new and old faces with Tres Leches Cake @ our first meeting of the quarter (Oct. 10th) and at Conoce UCHICAGO: Latino RSO Meet & Greet. We have a lot on the horizon and would love for you to come check out OLAS. Our meetings are held every Wednesday @ 7pm in OMSA (http://omsa.uchicago.edu/) 5710 S. Woodlawn Ave. To see what specific events we have coming up click here: EVENTS
