Welcome to the Friends of French Studies at LSU!
The Friends of French Studies at LSU supports and participates in the mission of LSU's Department of French Studies and other French educational programs and activities of the University. Our goal is to preserve and promote Louisiana's unique Francophone heritage and culture, including Cajun, Creole, and classical French traditions.
The Friends of French Studies will serve as an official liaison between the Department of French Studies, the Center for French and Francophone Studies, and affiliated programs, on the one hand, and the state and community on the other. Members will be invited to participate in University activities including French films, lectures, receptions, poetry readings and concerts. The Friends will also support the French programs at LSU through fund-raising and endowments.
