Language Resource Center
The Language Resource Center (LRC), supervised by professor Jon Aske, is a computer-based language lab, tutoring center, and study space for students in the world languages and cultures department. Students can complete workbook listening activities for their language courses, get extra help from tutors or by using online resources, listen to world music or watch foreign language films, take the Spanish placement test, or complete online homework assignments.
Visit the Language Resource Center in Sullivan Building, room 117 from 8 am-4:30 pm Mondays-Thursdays and 8 am-3 pm on Fridays.
The department strongly encourages students in our language programs to study abroad. In collaboration with the Center for International Education, we offer short-term, faculty-led summer study abroad options in Canada, Costa Rica, Italy, and Spain. Through the Center for International Education’s study abroad office, students can find other programs to study abroad for a summer, semester, or a full year in many different countries in Europe, the Americas, Africa, and Asia.
