UAM’s Modern Languages Program includes many interesting and productive organizations as well as countless enjoyable activities and festivals in order to promote foreign languages and cultures to the community.  

ORGANIZATIONS:  

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.

Some of the events in which the club participates or hosts:

Spanish Film Nights

The Foreign Language Club hosts movie nights to show films from other countries with English subtitles for students’ and guests’ enjoyment.

French Club

A relatively new organization, the French Club is for students and members of the community that wish to learn more about French culture and heritage.

Heifer International – Pass on the Gift

For the past several years Delta Zeta Epsilon has participated in fundraising for the Heifer International organization to provide livestock to those in need in other countries.

Heifer’s gifts of “living loans” offer milk, eggs, meat, wool, draft power and other benefits that afford improved nutrition, health, education and income for resource-poor families. The organization trains families to care for the animal and in exchange each family agrees to give the animals’ first offspring to other families in need.

Delta Zeta Epsilon believes this organization has a truly noble cause and is honored to contribute to its goal of caring and providing for others.

Project H.O.P.E. – Helping Others Pursue Excellence

Through hard effort, Delta Zeta Epsilon has in the past sponsored distinguished UAM students to travel to a school in a foreign country and teach children English and American culture for one week. The student receives three (3) credit hours for the trip and the school provides room and board during their stay. Project H.O.P.E. has sent students to Honduras in the past and looks to travel to Nicaragua for the coming year. More information will be posted as it develops.
