On Tuesday September 20th, Liliane Duséwoir, Faculty Advisor to the French House, organized a reception to welcome the Resident Director in Paris, Renee Pontbriand who, along with the Assistant Director at Study Abroad, Leilani Olson, held an info session about our Paris and  Grenoble programs. Five Faculty members, 6 returning students and  more than 50 students wishing to study in France mingled in the beautiful salon of La Maison and sampled a select assortment of French cheeses. Two voice major students, Joanna Lynn-Jacobs and  Suzanne Karpov, delighted the audience with songs by Edith Piaf and  an aria by Gabriel Fauré. They received a resounding round of  applause and a modest gift from Study Abroad as a token of our appreciation.
