French House (Bailey: Maison Francophone)
208 N. Professor St.
French House, also called Bailey, is a small building on north campus just across the street from Stevenson Dining Hall (which sets aside a private room for practitioners). On the other side of the house is the North Quad and Science Center. Like all the language-based program houses, students should have some French speaking ability, anywhere from beginner to fluent.
House Support and Resources: One Faculty-in-Residence, two French Teaching Assistants (TAs), and one Resident Assistant (RA) live in the house and provide residents with close ties to the Department of French and Italian. A library with program related resources is located inside along with a TV lounge equipped with French language stations.
Programming: Around 35 students enjoy programs that include French films, social activities, language tables, and French breakfast every other Sunday.
House Requirements and Application: Residents are active members and leaders with planning house programs. Each resident is encouraged to facilitate a house program and attend the French Language tables in Stevenson-Griswold Dining Hall. Anyone wanting to live in French House needs to fill out an application!
