Georgia Tech-Lorraine (Tech’s European Campus) and the Department of Modern Languages have teamed up to provide the ultimate immersion program for French-speaking students: the SLS-France Program. From French courses to service-learning projects, the program focuses on sustainability in Metz, France.
Georgia Tech students studying in France attended the centennial commemoration of the signing of the Treaty of Versailles on June 28, 2019, in Versailles, France.
Students in Tim Stoneman's HTS 2801 class were joined by Vicki Birchfield's EU study abroad program students. Together, they visited the Museum of the Armistice in Compiegne and the Chateau de Versailles, attended a day-long symposium at the Chateau (organized by the WWI Centennial Commission and Dr. Monique Seefried), participated in a ceremony to honor Generals Pershing and La Fayette by giving a speech and laying flowers, and visited the rare book room of the Versailles municipal library.
