Georgia Southern goes French Nov. 2-8

Providing transcultural opportunities for its students is part of Georgia Southern University’s strategic plan, and while not every student can travel outside the United States, they can all take advantage of the wealth of internationally focused opportunities that take place on campus. One such opportunity is the Eighth Annual National French Week, coordinated by Dr. Clara Krug, professor of French, and planned for Nov. 2-8.
