Language Houses

There's no better way to improve your language skills than to immerse yourself completely. Language houses give you the opportunity to do just that, without ever leaving campus.

The International House

Each language house is located in the International House at Maxcy College. As a resident, you'll have the opportunity to practice your language every day and to be a part of a cultural exchange with international students. 

As a living and learning community member, you'll also take specific courses with the other students in your house.
