College of Liberal students who study French, German, Italian and/or Slavic learn not just to read, write and speak the languages—but to understand the people and places to which those tongues are native. Here, you’ll find stories about how our foreign language students, alumni and faculty are immersing themselves in the art, society and culture of these countries and their citizens. Read the stories below and please contact us if you have a story of your own you think we should tell.
