Spring 2013 Advising: Pre-registration is around
the corner, so please make an advising appointment with me or Dr. Bunck to
discuss your summer, fall and spring schedule. I am on sabbatical leave this spring, but will be available for

2013. Dr. Julie Bunck (firstname.lastname@example.org)
will be available for advising on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:30-11:30 in
Stevenson 306. Please contact me by email for an appointment: email@example.com.
May 2013 LALS Graduates: Natalie Schuetz and I are compiling the list of LALS students who will be graduating in May. Some of you did contact us to confirm your graduation, and we thank you for that. Check to see that your name is on the list below. If it is not, and you are graduating, please send me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org (not the service account address). If your name is listed as graduating and you are not going to do so, please let us know that as well. Mark your calendars for the Annual LALS Spring Showcase and Internship Poster Session, Tuesday, April 2, 2013, from 3:00-4:30. All graduates will be recognized and given certificates and graduation cords. We will also celebrate the 2013 Panama Scholars, the 2013 Lewis Scholars, and our interns. In March, you will receive an exit interview questionnaire by email. We need your feedback for our records.
