LINGUA, a new organization on UMSL’s campus for linguaphiles, left positive messages for international students on the MSC Bridge’s windows as part of its Bridge on the Bridge program on March 16. “They are putting up welcome messages in a bridge design to celebrate our international students,” said Birgit Noll, language and cultural studies department chair. Many of the messages expressed how much UMSL’s community depends on its international students and how valuable their various experiences are for its community.
