The BU Undergraduate World Languages & Literatures Association (BUWA) aims to bridge the gap between students spread out across the department, as well as to facilitate the communication between undergraduates and faculty. Being a resource for students looking to further their academic and/or career-oriented goals is also one of our priorities. We like to think of our group as a meeting point for all students passionate about good books, foreign languages, and discovering a global community.

Come to our meetings every other Thursday at 6:30 pm in STH 441 to learn more about what we do. We also do special monthly events such as movie nights, and we aim to always provide snacks. Our first meeting of the Fall 2022 semester is on Thursday, September 15th! We’d love to see you there!

We also have a student publication related to the department, Alexandria, which you can find more about here.

If you would like to stay updated with BUWA’s future meetings and activities, join our mailing list here.

All BU Students are welcome – having a WLL major or minor is not required!
