I enjoyed talking to Katrin Gebhard, with the French Embassy in New York, about the services the embassy offers to US colleges. If you are looking for study abroad opportunities in France or just need some help internationalizing your student on campus the Embassy is the place to go. No matter how small your program they have something to offer. If you would like to contact Katrin she would be happy to work with you or direct you to a French Embassy consulate closer to you. Call her at 929-505-0843 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
