Modern Language Alliance (MLA)
The Modern Language Alliance is open to all members of the College community studying languages, and to others with an interest in the language, culture and customs of French-, Spanish-, Italian-, German- or Japanese-speaking nations. Students from foreign backgrounds enrich the group by adding their cultural experiences and are also very welcome.
MLA fosters an appreciation of cultures foreign to American students and offers a forum to discuss issues not covered in language classes. It brings foreign films, performing arts and academicians to the campus, and publicizes and encourages participation in foreign events on campus and in the Syracuse area. The MLA Puppet Theater participates in the Festival of Nations every year.
