Foreign Language Club
The Foreign Language Club of UAM is open for all students wanting to learn about foreign languages and cultures. Members are NOT required to be enrolled in a Foreign Language Class, but to simply have an interest in Foreign Cultures. For more information or to join contact or come to one of our meetings. Some important points to keep in mind:
Requirements: Members are asked to participate in as many of the events as possible, but especially the meetings.
Dues: Membership dues are $2 per semester. Meetings are held at least once a month, sometimes more if there is an event or program happening. Dues may be paid to any Executive Member at a meeting or to our advisor.
The members of the Foreign Language club for the 2011-2012 school year are:
President- Minerve Jean-Francois
