“The French House is one of the best kept educational secrets on campus. The residents are so busy enjoying themselves, they don’t always realize that they’re perfecting their French.”
—Paul Rockwell, Professor of French
The French House is an academic theme community that is located in King Hall on the Amherst College campus.
It was founded:
- To create a residential environment for students interested in developing and exercising their skills in the French language;
- To provide a forum in which all francophones at Amherst College can engage in activities conducted in French that are related to French language and culture;
- To establish an organizational structure that seeks to provide opportunities for interested members of the College community to familiarize themselves with various aspects of French language and culture.
