The members meet weekly to discuss upcoming events, practice French, and discuss ways to promote French language and culture at SOU and in the community. A highlight of the French Club's activities is the annual French dinner, which draws over 100 people.

Spanish Club at SOU is active in a wide variety of programs and special events. During the spring of 2004, the club was able to organize a multitude of activities that benefited students from many backgrounds. The members meet weekly to discuss upcoming events, practice Spanish, and talk about what more could be done to involve the community and students of Ashland.
This past term the Club organized weekly Salsa lessons (teaching beginner to intermediate dancers the steps, rhythm and history of this Latin Dance), a weekly movie night (watching movies in Spanish subtitled in English to practice the language as well as learn more about Latin American culture), assisted the Latino Student Union in organizing food events such as 5 de Mayo, prepared food for the annual majors fair, cooked traditional Latino dishes for a food party (a fun meeting in a club member's house which invited students who were not part of the club to come and experience the tastes of Latin America), and organized a cultural trip to San Francisco (visiting the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts in the Mission District of SF, seeing a Diego Rivera mural in the Art Institute, taking Cuban Movement and Salsa lessons in the Cultural Center, a visit to the Spanish mission of San Francisco which was made by Spanish priests and is one of the oldest structures in the city, and taking part in the annual parade of Carnaval).
For the years to come the Club wishes to involve more of the community through working with LSU and other Latinos of the Rogue Valley, learning more about the culture and helping to bridge cultural gaps.
