More from Karis:
"Even as a minor I was able to meet one-on-one with French faculty in order to pick the study abroad program that best fit my interests.  My semester abroad ended up being the best decision I made in college.  It opened my eyes to the value of learning a foreign language and changed my view of the world, myself, and other people.  My experience would not have been the same without the encouragement and support of the VU French department."
