Spanish and/or French?

Hello everyone,
Next fall I'll start my last semester at the college and decided to have a linguistic treat for myself. I want to take beginner's French while finishing up my German Studies major (yes, will be taking a class in advanced German per semester, too). But Spanish appeals to me as well. The problem is, I am not sure where I'd like to live/work after graduation. It looks like French will be more useful in Europe while Spanish is better for the States. Oh, so confused..
Those of you who speak both Spanish and French, would it be ok to take them simultaneously, both from scratch? I do have a 2-year background in Italian. Never have a chance to speak it but still understand it very well.
Any thoughts on how practical it is to know certain languages in Europe and USA would also be appreciated.
Thank you for your help!
