Fall 2021 Linguistics & Anthropology Welcome Picnic

On September 11th, 2021, Mint Springs Park in Crozet was the site of a welcome social for linguistics and anthropology students and faculty to mingle outdoors, eat tamales, and hike in the surrounding foothills.

This meeting was among the first program-organized social gatherings for many students who joined the linguistics and anthropology programs during the pandemic of 2020, when all classes were held online and many new students had not yet met their cohort or instructors in person.

It was a pleasure to enjoy each other's company outside of the realm of Zoom and the academic walls of the University, and we can thank the Linguistics Program Director, Dr. Mark Sicoli, for organizing the event.

We look forward to seeing you at our next linguistics program social event!
