Five students and three French faculty members spent the weekend of March 5-7 exploring Ottawa, the Canadian capital. The group was led by Visiting Assistant Professor of French Julie Kruidenier Tolliver '02, a native of the Ottawa region. The students and faculty experienced the distinctive character of a bilingual city situated at the juncture of anglophone Ontario and francophone Quebec.

Highlights of the trip included a two-night stay at the Ottawa Jail, a former prison turned youth hostel; guided tours in French at both the Musée canadien des civilisations and the Canadian Parliament; and a visit to the ByWard Market (Marché By), where students sampled Beavertails, a sugar-laden pastry made famous by President Obama's visit to Ottawa last year.
