Two hundred high school students visited Wright State University to practice their French skills, learn more about the university and have fun during the annual French Immersion Day on Oct. 24.
High school students and their instructors from 12 Ohio schools participated in various activities, including welcoming ceremonies, ice-breaking games, a flag parade, French-inspired lunch and dancing.
“I hope that the students when they come here they’re able to practice their French outside of the classroom,” said Kristen Halling, professor of French at Wright State.
Wright State students and alumni volunteered to help make sure the event was a success.
“After coming to Immersion Day with my French class it really solidified Wright State as a choice for me,” said Emma Mills, a 2019 alumna and event volunteer.
This annual recruiting event brings top students to campus for a day of academically based engagement. This was the 15th year that Wright State has hosted French Immersion Day.
