SAC will be planning some great activities over this semester, so stay tuned. Our first meeting will be Friday, September 4 at 3 pm in the first floor lobby of Adorjan Hall.
One of the many purposes that SAC serves is to be a center of important information for graduate theology students. With that in mind, here is the information that we have so far on the language groups meeting this fall. These are casual groups of graduate students and faculty that meet together to practice reading and translating texts into English.
In the past, there have also been groups in Syriac (email Dr. Wickes if you are interested in this), basic Latin, and French as well. This post will be updated if we receive any information on these groups for the fall of 2015.
