Affinity Housing/Global Village
Founded in 2002, French and Italian Affinity Housing provides a unique living alternative at Dartmouth College. French and Italian Affinity Housing consists of a French suite and an Italian suite in the Global Village. The students who are selected to live in these suites agree to speak French or Italian when they are in the residence and to promote the awareness and appreciation of Francophone and Italophone cultures on campus. French and Italian Affinity Housing hosts many Department-sponsored events such as art exhibitions, faculty lectures, film series, concerts, theater performances, recitals, a weekly conversation hour and parties. Events are open to all students and to members of the community.
