Fall 2021 Academic Study Hours

Hello Familia,

I am happy to announce our academic study plan for the rest of the quarter! Study or familia hours are hosted by our board members every quarter as a way to bond with our general members while still maintaining our pursuit of academic excellence.

We welcome all general members to come and join us.

How to get to Courtyard Study Lounge (CSL)?

Our study hours will be hosted in the courtyard study lounge (CSL) on-campus by the Student Terrance and next to the Starbucks at The Hill Bookstore. If you still need help finding CSL, please feel free to send a message to the board member hosting the study hour, and they will be more than happy to help.

We are looking forward to seeing everyone there and know that attending study hours are counted when giving out a general member of the month and other recognition awards.

Let’s have a great week and see you all soon at our next general meeting.

Week One Recap

Hello Familia,

Concluding our Kickoff Meeting, I would like to thank our alumni, our longtime advisor Michelle Foley, and Lisa Shulman for attending our meeting for the first time in over eighteen months!

As I said during the general meeting, not everything went as well as we could have imagined but remember that we are all transitioning back to in-person living and particular transitions are not that easy. However, I want to affirm our general members that this year’s executive board is more than up to take on the challenge this year has in store for us.

Given that LBSA will continue to have in-person activities, we will bring back the membership fee of $25 for full benefits and perks. All the proceeds go towards either buying the LBSA member t-shirts or Nuestras Raices Fundraiser (our end-of-the-year scholarship opportunity).

Given the current financial situation, the image above breaks down our payment options for members looking to join, which offers flexibility. Our Venmo is @LBSAUCI, Zelle is, or make cash payments during our next general meeting.

We have also included our Fall 2021 Week 1 General Meeting slides so you can have a look at other events or opportunities we have coming up.

Through and through, LBSA is the club to be part of this year, given the strength of our executive board and robust familia environment. I hope to see everyone soon at our events and have a restful weekend.
