Vox Condiscipulum, Latin for “voice of the school fellows,” is the FIS Departmental Association for graduate students. The aim of the association is to promote and serve the intellectual, academic, cultural and social interests of the graduate students of the department, fostering interaction between students and providing support for new graduate students. We are currently working on a peer-reviewed journal that will allow graduate students to publish and share their research, as well as seeking funding for a book of poetry that was created and translated by two of our members. If you would like information or have ideas for future activities or events, please contact the current executive members: Brandee Strickland, Chantelle Hug, Sandra Christensen and Tijana Malogajski.
