|Lindsey Skala came to Valpo to major in French and International
Economics & Cultural Affairs (IECA) and found that, as part of her
first Valpo French course, she was paired for an hour of conversation
per week with Emeric Abrignani, one of the French exchange students from
l'université de Cergy-Pontoise. This free-form French
practice complemented the focused language study in the classroom and
led to friendships with all the French students on campus.
Lindsey's found VU's "right-sized" program to be helpful in other ways,
too: she says, "I've had nothing but positive and constructive feedback
and support.... I know my professors care about my goals and want me to succeed."
