AFLSE National Newsletter: August Events and Developing Online Community

Bon Voyage Parties, organized by chapters across the country, create one of the most important and successful annual AFLSE programs.  New students, en route to study at the LSE, are introduced to the alumni community who share their experiences of studying at the LSE.  At the same time, the students they have the chance to network with each other, making contacts which may help them with living arrangements, studying, or just getting together to socialize as they adjust to life abroad. Washington, DC, Boston and San Francisco have already held successful events.  In August, alumni and friends are invited to welcome students at events in Philadelphia and New York (this week), followed by Minneapolis, Los Angeles, Seattle, Dallas/Ft Worth, Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland and Denver (see below).  In addition to these events, New York, Washington and Boston will be hosting "happy hours" so LOGIN to http://www, to review events that are available in your area.

The AFLSE is also reaching out to the online community of LSE alums via Facebook and LinkedIn.  See below for information on how you can benefit from contacts beyond those of the AFLSE, and help recruit new members to the organization.
