EVENT DATE Jan 02, 2017


Hello! I'm excited to be heading to Paris this coming January but my financial aid was a bit less (okay, a lot less) than I expected. I'd really appreciate help affording this experience, as it's something I've been wanting to do ever since I started learning French more than four years ago. My college courses have left me fascinated with both the city's past and present, along with the eclectic energy of its residents. I would like to ask relatives to donate to this fundraiser in lieu of other Christmas or birthday gifts. It would help me reduce my future debt and be able to experience Paris without constantly stressing about money. All funds will go directly to making early loan payments and any extra costs while I am abroad. A little information about the trip from the syllabus: Students will delve into advanced language work and on-the- spot investigation of French culture, past and present, including theater, film, visual arts, the French court and the medieval cathedral through background readings, visits to important monuments, and personal interviews. Students will read, discuss, see and critique plays ranging from the classical to the contemporary. Each student will prepare an individual project on a topic of interest. Preparation of the project will require some additional reading, attendance at cultural events, visits to exhibits, interviews. Students will present their findings to the class in a 20-30 minute oral presentation at the end of the Interim. They will also submit to the instructor in electronic form a written summary of the project (approx. 4-5 pages) by the end of the Interim. As of right now, I'm hoping to study Parisian public libraries and the ways that they function. I'd like to delve into their organization systems, patron service, and collection development. This will be a great chance to study more of my future career and form international connections, so I'm really looking forward to it. Please message me on facebook if you'd like to learn more, and thank you to everyone that considers donating! Best, Miranda
