Student Language Clubs

Cercle français

Whether hosting guest speakers, film viewings, seasonal celebrations, French conversational hours, and campus or community outreach activities, the Cercle français (French Club) offers students an opportunity to hone their organizational and event planning skills while providing a space for interested students to get to know each other better outside of the classroom, to practice their French, and to experience Seattle’s ever-expanding French and francophone cultural, cinematic, and culinary offerings. For more information, contact Dr. Michelle Beauclair.

Link Club

Dr. Owen Ewald is the faculty advisor for Link, the club for all fandoms. The club was founded in 2011 by a group of students, some of whom majored in the LCL department. The Link Constitution reads, “Some of the interests we intend to focus on are video games, role-playing games, comic books, popular fiction novels, science fiction, and fantasy. We hope that Link can become a community where people who aren't the best at socializing can come to make friends, find new interests, and get plugged into the SPU community.” For more information, visit Link Club on Facebook.

“There are doubtless many different languages in the world, and none is without meaning, but if I do not know the meaning of the language, I shall be a foreigner to the speaker and the speaker a foreigner to me. So with yourselves; since you are eager for manifestations of the spirit, strive to excel in building up the church.”
1 Corinthians 14:10–12
