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
Students from Noisy le Roi and Bailly Visit Campus
Students from Albion’s Sister Cities, Noisy le Roi and Bailly, France arrived in town for the 6th Annual Albion College Piano Festival, October 31 – November 2, 2013. The festival is a competition hosted by the Music Department. Early beginners up to advanced players and piano duos can win cash prizes. But for the participants, the Festival is equally about performing, meeting and hearing other students, and taking lessons/master classes from Albion Faculty and guest artists.
In between practicing and lessons, our young French guests spent a day visiting Dr. Dianne Guenin-Lelle’s and Dr. Emmanuel Yewah’s French classes. They shared what life is like for them in France, they ate in Lower Baldwin, played Bocce on the Campus Quad, and attended a Goûters at Fiske House, home of the international living and learning program.
