Islander studies abroad in France

Jack Elliot Nunn of Bainbridge Island is among 55 Linfield College students who are participating in a Linfield study abroad program.

Nunn, a junior majoring in art, is the son of Jack and Susan Nunn. He is studying at Centre International d’Etudes Françaises in Angers, and living with a host family.

School officials said during his time abroad, Nunn will get the chance to experience French culture through numerous concerts, theatrical events and cultural visits to different sites.

Linfield’s study abroad programs are designed for students who have completed one or two years of study in the appropriate foreign language (Japanese, Spanish, French, Chinese or German). The curriculum includes language instruction as well as studies in the culture, politics, economics, history and art of the country. The program is open to sophomores, juniors and seniors, and selection is made on a competitive basis. Linfield covers the cost of the first round-trip airfare when students qualify. Students pay regular Linfield tuition and a program fee.
