On September 19, 2013, the French Section and French Honor Society (Pi Delta Phi) hosted a presentation, in French, by Cédric Chrisostome, volleyball player, coach and PE teacher from Paris, France, who this semester is exchanging best methods and practices as a volunteer coach for the UA women’s volleyball team. 

His presentation, L’essentiel, c’est de participer…, used the famous adage by Pierre de Coubertin, the father of modern Olympics, to explore the differences in sport culture, and beyond, between the French and the Americans.
