French at Wofford

Jessi Fuller 2015, English/French

Impact Project

Why French? Aside from the beauty of the language, over 200 million people on five continents speak the language; it's the second most learned second language, after English; France is home to the world's 5th largest economy and the third largest number of foreign investors.

In America, 4,600 companies are French owned, employing over 650,000. For Impact 2014, I will be marketing French @ Wofford, a.k.a. the French Program. Through this, I hope to encourage prospectives to choose French. I plan to reach out to them as well as current students through a revamped Facebook page and a user friendly website. With events such as the French Film Club, as well as professional speakers working for Francophone companies, French @ Wofford will become more visible on campus, hopefully prompting others to ask, "Why not French?"
