French on Campus
The French Section of the Department of World Languages and students of Le Club de Français sponsor cultural events throughout the year, including French cooking classes, French Film Festivals, pétanque tournaments and French cultural field trips in Portland. To be informed of current events, we invite you to consult the George Fox Calendar, or subscribe to the French Department Facebook page at GFU.
Hope to see you at one of our events soon!
Le Club de Français / French Club
Everyone is welcome, and English may be spoken.
It offers students the opportunity to participate in cultural events and French oriented events and activities that will occur on campus. Therefore, if you enjoy watching French films, listening to music, and eating French food then this is a great occasion for you to join our club. We hope that at the end of the school year we have allowed you to experience the French culture.
Hope to see you at one of our events and don’t miss our GFU French Film and Food Festival on campus!
If you would like to become a member of the French Club, please contact Isabelle Corneaux.
