Community Gatherings

Welcome! We would like to invite you to the 2024-2025 CLS Community Gatherings!  Each Thursday, beginning in late September, representatives of a department or resource unit on campus will give short presentations and hold Q&A sessions for students from noon to 1:00pm in Ingraham 336. You can expect to have lively discussions about academic life, to learn about resources available on the UW-Madison campus, build a strong sense of community, and enjoy a catered lunch.  The CLS Community Gatherings are mainly intended for undergraduates who are enrolled in or considering the CLS major and certificate, as well faculty and staff affiliated with the Program.
