Linguistics Student Association

The Linguistics Student Association (LSA) is the departmental student association for the Linguistics department at the University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC). LSA is a student run organization that serves to bridge the gap between faculty and students. As student liaisons, it is our goal to help each and every one of our students make the most of their time as undergraduate linguists at UTSC. From running workshops, hosting bake sales, or just saying a friendly "hello", LSA is always ready to help!
