51 Franklin St.
51 Franklin Street is currently the French academic interest house, where 10 students can live to improve or maintain their language skills. Living at the house entails signing a language pledge similar to that of Middlebury's summer school. This pledge obliges the student to speak only French while in the house. The house is a place where students of French can come together with the resident native-speaking teaching assistant for cafes and movies. The house acts as a learning center not only for the residents, but also for the rest of the French students who drop in on occasion to practice their language skills and get help with homework. The only TV in the house exclusively receives French channels.
