Trivia Night
Tuesday, October 20th, 7pm to PM
Ridgewood Commons
In an event that mixes fun and knowledge, the Brandeis French and Francophone Club is hosting a trivia night. The format will be similar to Jeopardy. All participants will receive a consolation prize.

La Soirée Quebecoise
Thursday, November 19th, 7pm to PM
Castle Commons
The goal of our club is to not only promote the culture of France but also the cultures of the many French speaking nations. As a result, the Brandeis French and Francophone Club is hosting a soirée where we highlight the culture of Québéc. Since food is seminal to a culture, this event will be centered on the traditional dish of poutine, catered by Sodexo. We will also have Québécois music and the card game Milles Bournes.

Please stay tuned for more events.

Hispano-Anerican Round Table poster
Round Table Discussion about topics and images in photography and cinematography in Spain and Latin America. Led by Professor Azlin Perdomo.

For those of you aren't familiar, this is a fun and laid-back opportunity to further your knowledge of Latin American culture through exploring famous photographers from countries like Cuba, Mexico, Venezuela, etc. Each weekly discussion focuses on a different aspect of Latin America's culture and history including immigration, war, economic & gender inequality, and revolution.

This is also an incredible opportunity to practice your Spanish in a casual setting, and all levels of fluency are encouraged to come!

For further information, please feel free to contact Nellie Spener (nrose@brandeis.edu). Hope to see you there!

Questo semestre, abbiamo sei tavole italiane fantastiche!

Che cosa sono?
Ci incontriamo ad una tavola in Upper Usdan e parliamo in italiano– un modo molto divertente per praticare!

Note: each table lasts an hour as listed, but you can also stop by for just a few minutes.


Anyone interested in informally practicing their Spanish are welcome to attend Charlamos. Students attend weekly meetings to meet socially, speak Spanish, and to share ideas, music, and photos.

This Spanish language conversation group meets every Tuesday from 6 to 6:30, speaking informally in Spanish. Refreshments served.
