I was involved with the Student Organization of Applied Linguistics, planning events. We were able to petition and get a student lounge. We put on a ton of different events throughout the year - a lot of them happen in the lounge. We have game nights, and we’ve had guest speakers come in. None of that would be possible, I don’t think, in a larger department. Because there’s so much support coming from all of the professors all the time.
