As LSO president, I’d like to say hello to everyone and wish all SIRLS students, staff and faculty a great fall semester. LSO has a lot planned for this term, and we look forward to making the organization a better representative of student interests and more active in faculty/student relations. We are gearing up to make the blog into a forum for discussing faculty/student issues and we are also creating a SIRLS student online survey. We are beginning to organize the fourth annual SIRLS Graduate Student Symposium and hope to see many student participants come November. LSO also plans on hosting several other events in the fall including social and professional networking activities.
Please join us for our first meeting of the fall semester on Friday, September 5th at 6 pm in the SIRLS multipurpose room. If you are a distance student and would like attend a meeting virtually, please e-mail me at ikeda [at] email.arizona.edu. We’d love to see all students participate in our organization.
