Hardesty Language Community

TU’s Hardesty Language Community aims to create an innovative living and learning environment that fosters a healthy spirit of meaningful cultural exchange, academic growth and personal development in a community of language learners.

Hardesty Language Community is for students passionate about practicing and speaking Chinese, French, German, Russian or Spanish. It is housed on the third floor of Hardesty Hall near the center of campus and offers use of a family-style great room and the ground-floor patio on Hurricane Plaza.
