Riley, Class of 2019 : Colby College

Colby College
Waterville, Maine

Riley spent his first semester abroad at prestigious Colby College as part of their foreign language program. Initially unsure how his own language preparation in high school would compare to the rest of the group, he found that he was one of the strongest speakers. As a freshman at the Universite de Bourgogne, he was placed in a French language class along other international students, some of whom were university juniors majoring in French. Riley says that Roycemore’s French program prepared him extremely well, and the school gave him the “invaluable asset of being confident in himself.” Riley also managed to find a tutoring job in Dijon where he teaches French to high school students.
