Summary

A summative evaluation of the Drop-in center took place in order to: (1) observe French-speaking monitors during their sessions as hosts; (2) provide feedback on their ability to carry out this role; (3) monitor the implementation of changes previously recommended; (4) assess student reaction to the center programs by questionnaire; and (5) provide information to the French center for future funding possibilities. Fifty of the 100 student questionnaires were returned. In addition to the questionnaires, the evaluator was present during the times when the center was open to observe the monitors and to assess the general climate. The center's activities are both structured and unstructured, academically-oriented and social. Generally speaking, the center affords the opportunity to speak and read French and to associate with French-speaking persons. It was found that many professors choose to take their coffee breaks there, and that students and professors like to go there to read, chat, do assignments, and listen to music. According to the student questionnaires, the center was welcoming, helpful in learning French, and a good place to meet and converse with Francophiles. The appendices include the original proposal given to the appropriate department of the Province of Alberta for the establishment of the center, and the student questionnaire used in this study.
