"My study abroad experience in Pau, France greatly increased my knowledge and understanding of the French culture. As a Foreign Language major, I understand the importance of clear communication between the peoples of other countries. My professors helped me to understand the fine points of French grammar and improve my French conversational skills. Study abroad is absolutely a worthwhile experience for college students, especially Foreign Language majors."
—Maria Alena Scavone
