The goal of Le Quartier Français is to increase oral proficiency in a fun and relaxed environment. Students live together in rooms in James Hall West and are guided by a live-in native (or near native) speaker that includes exchange students from France and Residence Advisor.
Centenary students are working to address some of the 21st Century’s greatest challenges through Living Learning Communities.
LLC students join with a team of faculty, professionals, and community members to identify a problem, understand it, and take steps to overcome it. To be effective, students work together to employ the wide range of skills and knowledge provided by a Centenary liberal-arts education. Taking responsibility for all stages of their project, students step beyond the classroom to engage community members, government officials, and anyone else who can help them complete their work.
In the end, LLC students learn a great deal about themselves even as they create an enduring legacy for Centenary, the community, and the world.
