Facilities and Activities
The Department of Foreign Languages is located on the second floor of South Hall, at the southeast corner of the beautiful main quadrangle. The Department has a state-of-the-art Language Learning Center with a 30-station computer lab. The Learning Center also includes a quiet study room, a student lounge called the Euro Café, and a foreign languages library.
Our three student organizations are very active and often hold their meetings in the Euro Café or study room. Each fall semester, the German Club, Der Deutsche Klub, hosts Oktoberfest with delicious, home-cooked German dishes. In late October, the Spanish Club, Amigos, celebrates El Día de los Muertos. The annual Française Soirée is sponsored by the French Club, Avant Garde, and features wonderful dishes from French-speaking countries. All three clubs sponsor many other events throughout the year, including conversation hours, service projects, and special showings of foreign films.
On a daily basis, the Euro Café provides a relaxed atmosphere for students to gather between classes. In addition, the Café allows students yet another opportunity to hear the languages they're studying by turning on foreign language TV stations such as SCOLA news network (various languages) and TV5 Monde (French).
