Club offre la culture française à l’Université Oglethorpe

The OU French Club visited La Violette French Restaurant

The OU French Club organizes exciting French experiences and culinary adventures for their club members and the rest of the Oglethorpe community.

“The French Club is here to benefit anyone who is interested in being exposed to French culture,” said Alexus Whilby, club president. “You do not have to speak the language to have French fun! We share French food, fashion, language, and hospitality with all who come to visit our group.”

French Club celebrated Marc Chagall with a Magical Museum Night

Events organized by the French Club include a French cuisine cooking class, a Mardi Gras trip to New Orleans, and regularly scheduled French movie nights. Last semester the club took advantage of having the exhibit Chagall: The Early Etchings of the 1920s on-campus at the Oglethorpe University Museum of Art, by hosting French arts-themed event in the museum.

OU French Club encourages everyone to join in the fun. “You do not need an invitation to any of our meetings,” said Whilby. “They are held every Thursday from 5:00-6:00 p.m. in Hearst 101. Come one and all and experience the journey of the true “French life”, right here on the Oglethorpe campus!
