CulpeperCulpeper Language Learning Center

Welcome to the new Culpeper Language Center.

News for Academic Year 2022/2023:

The Department of Modern Languages, Literatures, and Cultures will be redesigning the Culpeper Language Center as it reopens on September 19th. The Center will continue to provide language tutoring in most (or all) languages offered in the department. In this new chapter, the Center will de-emphasize its role as a computer lab and will shift focus to become a space where our students, student workers, and faculty can share as a community on a regular basis.

Join our MLLC faculty every other Wednesday at the center to share a cup of coffee and have a relaxed conversation about what is going on in your prof's life in the college, their interests, their research, their approaches to languages, literature, and cultures. Or, treat this as an opportunity to share with MLLC faculty, your own background, your experience in the college, and your interests in languages, literatures, and cultures.

If you have any ideas for events, programming, or meetings that can take place in the Culpeper Center, please contact Carlos Mejía Suárez ( or Jennifer Tollefson (, to reserve the center.
