A new semester!

Hello everyone!

My name is Becca Gibson, I am one of two co-editors here for the Culture Shock Blog– the newsletter that focuses on providing U of M students information about the French and Italian Department here on campus. I hope that your first week went smoothly as we transistion into the new Fall term.

First of all, as many of you have probably noticed, the renovation in Folwell Hall is complete! If you haven’t checked out the new building, please take the opportunity to visit our new space! The French and Italian Department is now located in 314 Folwell Hall.

This blog contains information about new events and activities around the Twin Cities, as well as general information about tutoring, conversation groups, and contact information for the FRIT department.

We will be updating the blog periodically throughout the semester. Please let us know if there’s an event or something you’d like to see on this blog!

In addition, if you would like to submit a story, poem, news article, song, etc…. please contact us at fritnews@umn.edu. We are always looking for content and we’d love to hear from  you!
