JSUís French Connection

It was equal parts education and family that brought this child of France to Alabama from South Africa in 1998. She followed in the footsteps of her father and nearly 2,000 students from around the globe in the last six decades. Like Parker, those students were drawn to Jacksonville State Universityís International House, a program that since 1946 has brought students from around the world under one roof with their American counterparts for a unique lesson in global understanding.

The International House celebrates its 60th anniversary in July 2006 with a reunion of the programís alumni in Paris. Itís a fitting location for an endeavor that began in the 1940s as a way to beef up the French language program at what was then Jacksonville State Teachers College.
