Language Center director Teresa Valdez speaks at an event Tuesday celebrating the center’s one-year anniversary. Located in Douglass Commons, the center’s mission is to raise intercultural awareness and promote the 18 languages offered on the River Campus. It offers nightly conversation hours, cooking demonstrations, and a computer room where students can write emails or complete homework for foreign language classes on keyboards that reflect all languages offered. Also speaking Tuesday were Dean of the College Jeffrey Runner and former Dean of the College Richard Feldman. Valdez says enrollment in foreign language classes has increased 22 percent since the center opened last fall.
