After the reception, you’re welcome to attend the Reunion 2012 keynote address on the Arab Spring by Alex Hybel, the Susan Eckert Lynch '62 Professor of Government. Hybel was director of CISLA from 1992-94.
On Saturday,, CISLA will host a brunch at 10 a.m. in the Manwaring Gallery of the Cummings Arts Center.
As one of the College’s five interdisciplinary academic centers, CISLA allows students to internationalize any major through intensive foreign language study and a funded internship in the country of their academic focus.
CISLA alumni will have their own residence and hospitality room in Park House. For hotel options, you can contact Linda Camelio, assistant to the director and associate director of CISLA at 860-439-2440. Come back and share what made your own CISLA experience unforgettable!
