A state-of-the-art facility, the Ciruti Center provides groundbreaking methods of language instruction. Its three levels of classrooms and laboratory spaces enable instructors to integrate classroom teaching with outside learning activities employing interactive video stations, computers, and audio and video equipment. Students may utilize self-paced programs that are culturally and linguistically authentic and that allow them to view television news and other programs beamed via satellite from all over the world.
Ciruti began as a building used for dining services but in 1989 was converted into the Language Learning Center, centralizing the language courses and facilities. In 1992, the center was renamed the Joan E. Ciruti Center for Foreign Languages to honor a Spanish professor for her 29 years of service to the College.
