French at Albion College
First-Year Experiences with French
All entering students enroll in a First-Year Seminar as part of the College's core requirement for graduation. Small classes like these—with an emphasis on discussion, an opportunity for individualized student research projects, and the development of strong communication skills—serve as the foundation for your undergraduate experience.

Albion's Sister Cities
HALF-DAY IN SCHOOL GIVES STUDENTS A CHANCE TO LEARN ABOUT ALBION'S SISTER CITIES
On Wednesday, Dec. 7, Albion's school children have a half-day session. Starting around 11 a.m. there are several enrichment activities occurring.
One of these, taking place at the Albion High School computer lab, is a French Experience.
Dianne Guenin-Lelle, Professor of French at Albion College, Mary Slater, Co-Chair with Dianne of the Sister City Committee, and Mae Ola Dunklin are coordinating activities to further acquaint Albion's school children with our Sister Cities of Noisy-le-Roi and Bailly, France.

Carolyn Gaswick, an Albion resident who has been to France, will bring in some of her collection of French country figures, called Santons.
