BA, 2017

Abi graduated from CU in December 2017, and since then her French degree has continuously served as a powerful asset. She is currently in the J.D. program at American University Washington College of Law in Washington, D.C. pursuing a concentration in international law, and she believes that her background studying a foreign language and living abroad has been crucial to her success in law school. Abi hopes to go through the international dual degree program at WCL and return to France in 2021 for the last two years of her legal studies. 
The Department of French & Italian at CU was a wonderful tight-knit community within the greater CU campus. I started taking French classes in high school and wasn't sure that I would be able to continue once I started at CU, but I was captivated by all of the courses and opportunities offered through the department. I am so happy that I ultimately chose to pursue a French major because I had such an enriching experience learning from exceptional faculty, and now I have an invaluable skill to carry with me throughout my life and career.
