I had a great experience in the French Department. All of the professors I was lucky enough to take classes with were fantastic. Not only were they knowledgeable about their subject matter, they were also passionate about teaching. I have learned many valuable skills from them that will help me go on to be a great French teacher. I’d like to particularly thank Professor Compan. Her classes were fantastic and showed me a whole new side of Francophone literature and culture I fell in love with. In addition to these classes I had a great time studying abroad with the API program in Grenoble spring of 2015. I know that William and Mary has prepared me for a great future and I can’t wait to see what it has in store.
