With the support of the Department, the undergraduate clubs in French and Italian help organize and promote these numerous activities throughout the semester that enhance the experience of learning a new language for all.

Graduate students have the opportunity to meet some of the foremost scholars in thier disiplines during departmentally-sponsored guest lectures and various symposia on campus. Our graduate students also play active roles as teachers in the classroom and as scholars at international conferences.
