World Languages Week

That mythical time has come, when schoolwork comes back from the void of vacation like Gandalf after his date with the Balrog. You’ve returned to find campus transformed from its gray, slushy state under a new layer of white (more Lord of the Rings references. I don’t know why; I’m not even a fan).

There’s also definitely a homework metaphor here.


But the point is, you’re back. What are you going to do about it?

You could ease the pain by celebrating World Languages Week. And there’s lots more to do than just going to the Hoot to celebrate your questionable Irish heritage.
