Student Organizations

The Department of Modern Languages hosts honor societies and clubs in both French and Spanish. These very active student organizations sponsor many special events throughout the academic year, including conversation tables, game nights, movie screenings, poetry readings, soccer games, parties, international potlucks, culturally relevant talks, and more. At these varied events, free and open to the public, our students and the Keene State College community in general can practice their foreign language skills, learn about foreign cultures, and have some fun!
