French & Francophone Studies News

The French and Francophone Studies Program recently welcomed 120 French language students from 4 area high schools to the William Paterson University campus. The students and their teachers were treated to a reception, followed by a screening of the award winning French film "The Class" (Entre les murs). The event was part of the Tournees Festival of French Cinema, supported by a grant from the French-American Cultural Exchange Council, and organized to coincide with the celebration of National French and Francophonie Week.
