Le Cercle Francophone French Club

Established in 2018, le Cercle Francophone (LCF) is Jacksonville University's award-winning French Club! It is open to all students, with no French study required. LCF designs and executes events each semester with a French or Francophone flair, often in conjunction with other campus organizations such as the International Student Association, the African Student Association, and/or the Caribbean Student Association.

In 2020, LCF was named the Student Organization of the Year and was recognized with a prestigious French on Campus Award by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States.
