About Us

The Society of Linguistics Undergraduate Students is the course union for linguistics students in the University of Toronto (St. George). Our membership consists of all the U of T undergrads who are currently an ASSU member and enrolled in any linguistics (LIN/JAL/JLP/JLS) course and/or program.

SLUGS aims to represent all undergraduate linguistics students at the University of Toronto and to encourage them to take an active role in their academic community. Currently the SLUGS exec team consists of 2 co-presidents, 1 secretary, 2 academic event coordinators, 1 social event coordinator, and 1 design and marketing coordinator. All exec positions are elected by members. SLUGS is regulated by the By-­Laws of the Society of Linguistics Undergraduate Students.

SLUGS is a course union affiliated with the Arts and Science Student Union. ASSU represents the full-time undergraduate students in the Faculty of Arts & Science at the University of Toronto.
