UCEAP Weekend Excursion in Dordogne, France The Jeanie Anderson Memorial Fund was created in memory of Jeanie Anderson, who participated in the UCEAP Bordeaux program in 1972. The fund supports cultural excursions to help students have in-depth learning experiences outside the classroom.

Thanks to the generosity of the Jeanie Anderson Memorial Fund, 22 students in Bordeaux were treated to a weekend excursion in Dordogne, France! Students visited la ferme du Parcot, a park and 19th century farm that demonstrates historical activities from the region. The group enjoyed a dinner and evening of storytelling and songs from the Middle Ages, performed in the Occitan regional language.
They stayed at le Manior du Chambon, a house originally built in the 16th century. The following day, students had a guided tour of the Lascaux Cave reproduction and museum. They had free time in Montignac, a beautiful nearby village, before returning to Bordeaux.
