Foreign language houses

According to an article published in the Boston Globe, there has been an increase in student ­enrollment in foreign language courses which has led to the growth of language houses and residence halls on campus.

“When we started about five years ago in two separate wings of a dormitory floor, we had to recruit people and couldn’t fill the areas,” says Catherine Jones, associate professor of French at UGA. “This year, we have 18 students in each language and more that we couldn’t take because we didn’t have the room.”
