Purpose: The French Club prides itself on being one of the most vibrant and active clubs at Lyon! Every year it holds at least two parties, or fêtes. These events include a mardi gras in February and a masquerade called Le Bal masqué around Halloween. When it's not celebrating French culture with food and dancing, the club explores the French and francophone world with dedication. After visiting New Orleans last spring, the club plans to continue its traveling habit. This year, the club plans to visit Memphis in the fall to see an opera, and to return to New Orleans in the spring.
In this club, you will explore various aspects of French and franchophone cultures, cook delicious French and francophone food, and chat in French with classmates, professors, and exchange students. As a member of the club, you'll also receive first rate seats to Lyon's European Film Cycle! To participate, please e-mail our president or faculty advisors.
Allez! C'est parti!
Saturday, March 14th, 2020: Le Petit Show! Continuing our yearly tradition celebrating the journée de la francophonie, French club members, students, faculty, and community at large will gather for a night celebrating French and Francophone culture. There will be songs, poems, as well as presentations on students' and faculty' interests in French and Francophone cultures.
