Middlebury gives important safety information entirely in French. While this allows us to be fully immersive, a part of the program I enjoyed and drew from greatly, this impeded my ability to feel safe during orientation week. Even though I speak fluent French, knowing my peers and I were not receiving crucial safety information about our host city in our most familiar language was unnerving to me. That being said, I felt very safe in Paris throughout the semester and knew I could always come to the program for help. I just felt uneasy at the beginning, as if I might have missed important information.
