Culpeper 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.

For this reason, this year, we will be hosting a series of small events at 10 am and 11:30 am on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays of some designated weeks. A preliminary schedule for these events is:

Sept 19th, 21st, 23rd: Welcome to MLLC
Sept 26th, 27th, 30th: Showcase of creativity - Please contact Carlos Mejía Suárez (cmejia@gustavus.edu) if you would like to highlight a project you're involved in (academic, creative, artistic, etc)
Oct 3rd, 5th, 7th: Meet a prof. 
Oct 17th, 19th, 21st: Guide for registration and MLLC opportunities in the spring
Nov 21st, 23rd, 25th: Meet alumn and junior and senior students.

You can also visit the center at any point if you want to have a space to relax between classes, and speak with other students. We will be posting hours soon.

If you think of something that we could add to this schedule, please contact Carlos Mejía Suárez (cmejia@gustavus.edu)
