American University Field Trip

On Tuesday Dec 3 the 1ere International Section students visited the American University and the American Library in Paris, both in the 7th district.

At the American University they met an Admissons Counsellor and toured the various campus facilities. At the American Library they visited the Teens Section and learned about the Young Authors Fiction Festival next April. An added plus: lunch at the Champ de Mars near the Eiffel Tower and a short shopping spree! A chilly but enjoyable day!

American University Field Trip

The 3rd of December 2019, the students of the International Section from Lycée Bossuet went to the 7th district of Paris to visit the American University and the American Library. Have you ever thought of studying abroad in Paris? The French students arrived at 11am in Paris and went to the American library first. Did you know it is the largest English library with a teen section, activities, and films in Europe? People there are preparing the young authors contest. Last year they had 841 entries! Students visited the library and went to the Eiffel Tower to eat under the Eiffel Tower and had one hour free to explore the Champs de Mars.

            After that, they went to the American University and visited it. There are 1200 students studying from 109 nationalities which I think is very beneficial because you can meet different cultures. They had a lot of different electives and clubs like “the wine club”. And if you are undecided for your major, no worries, you can double major. So, this was a good day. The students learned a lot of things and I’m sure that some of them will go to this special university.
