French Club


A dynamic French Club led by an exchange graduate student from Paris organizes a variety of extra-curricular events involving students at all levels. These include excursions to New York City, Boston, and Montreal, as well as French, Caribbean, and African dinners. Each year we host about twenty French students from France and from French-speaking countries who take classes at UConn and participate in the activities of the French Club.


Rencontres françaises au Benton is a time for students to practice their French with a native speaker outside of the classroom. The group gathers to discuss current events happening in the French-speaking world in French. The group meets twice a month for one hour and half at the Benton Café on Thursdays from 4pm to 5.15pm.
