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.

We interviewed the students about what part of the program they liked best. Here are their comments:

Lydiane: it was a dream to see a musical on Broadway.

Lou: I loved everything we’ve done but I particularly enjoyed the Broadway show ! I’ve always dreamed of seeing a musical on Broadway and it was was better than I could ever imagine !

Justine: I enjoyed all of the trip but mostly when we visited the Statue of Liberty and the 9/11 museum. I cried during the movie because it was so sad. I also loved the 6 flags amusement park.

Baptiste: visiting the landmarks in Washington, D.C. on the National Mall because they were all part of American history. Also the 9/11 museum

Juliette: I enjoyed bonding with the other students on our bus rides. Also the Statue of Liberty.

Antonin: New York City. Walking in the streets was like a dream for me. Also the 9/11 museum.

Ewan: The last day in New York City with the 9/11 museum and the Empire State Building. You can t imagine how big the city is until you see it from above.

Evane: Times Square was amazing because it was like a movie but we were actually there!

Lucie: Times Square looks like nothing else I have ever seen

Gaelle: I had a great time with my American host. I also liked Times Square for all the lights. Going to 6 Flags was fun too.

Nous remercions chaleureusement les lycéens, Diane Hart et Glen Daniels pour nous avoir fait partager leur voyage.

TRIP TO PENNINGTON (6)

Thursday
Our last trip to NYC.

A sobering experience at the 9/11 Memorial Museum this morning, touring among the debris, the stories of personal tragedies and a film about first responders.

Wall Street and the Empire State Building cheered us up. It was once again a great day for good views at the top. Some of us even found King Kong.

We had a short amount of time shopping among the hustle and bustle of the city.

Goodbye, NYC, we love you!

TRIP TO PENNINGTON (5)

Suite des aventures des lycéens de Bossuet…

Washington D.C. round 2.

A very rainy museum day for all. Some students returned to the Air and Space Museum while others went to the Museum of Natural History.

In any case, everyone found interesting things to do. We had a bit of time to explore Union Station before returning to Pennington. A fun day!

TRIP TO PENNINGTON (4)

Second week

Washington D.C. round 1

The day started off with a 2 1/2 train ride to our nation s capital. After a luggage drop off at the hotel, Mr Daniels gave a talk about the sights of the day.

Then, off to the White House, the WW2 Memorial, the Vietnam Memorial, and the Lincoln Memorial where we lingered for a long moment.

The afternoon was spent visiting one of the 19 museums of the Smithsonian Institution.
Diner at the Hard Rock Café. Happy BD to Gaëlle!

Thank you so much !
