There is something between the plurality of identity and singularity of purpose that makes it an adventure to work alongside them. An adventure I very much enjoy. My dad taught me to apply corporate techniques to decision-making — to map out value chains and apply cost-benefit analysis — and to treat every opportunity like it was a Six Sigma consulting gig. Sciences Po hit the mark — it melded history and prestige and offered the social capital to work with in negotiations, applications, and networking; the School of Public Affairs had the vigor of a new-born program, one with a save-the-world ethos and without the naivety; and it boasted an international cohort that wouldn't just teach globally, it would give me a global experience.
My mom taught me intuition, that the best policymakers are artists, that beauty is what drives the entrepreneurial spirit.

So it wasn't just Sciences Po, it was Paris, it was France. I come from rolling hills, tobacco farms, and suburban metropolises — the idea of studying here was to plunge into a new aesthetic, into the archetype of a new form, a place where I could be swept across centuries of artistic movements with a stroll along the Seine. There's a freedom here that I didn't have back home.
Back home when I thought of new approach, a new way to do something, something that's never been done before, I would spend two-thirds of my energy just trying to convince administrators to entertain the idea. Here the academic advisers and professors help me dive straight into the mechanics of how to make it happen. Back home I'd have to spend six hours and a full tank of gas to feel like I've entered a new land.
Here it can be as close as a few metro lines away.

Here I have five organic grocery stores, four bike shops, and two sushi places within a five minute walk. Here I can traverse the entirety of a cosmopolitan metropolis on a public transit bike. There are so many barriers I thought immutable, the natural, urban laws, but here they just don't exist. I don't speak French. And if it isn't obvious, yet, I'm accustomed to the long-winded, Virginia Woolf variety of communication. So having my vocabulary, my tools of connection truncated to paltry phrases and the willing Anglo-Saxon friendly population — it's been a challenge.
The mundane became Herculean — getting a cellphone or bank account turned into all-day, intellect-taxing affairs. I had to focus on getting the right punch out of a few words said a few times instead of steamrolling with open oratory. There is growth in the struggle, a grace of relying on the kindness and abilities of others, of simplifying my words and eventually my thoughts — but it's been difficult, for sure. I plan on working with extra-curricular programs with a focus on interventions that use experiential learning, that teach behaviors and preferences like civic leadership and critical thinking.
I want to show that there's more to education than test scores, that there are programs out there, "value" programs, that are building the health, wealth, and democracy of the next generation. I want to quantify the wellbeing outcomes, find and spread the best methods, and help facilitate funding into their coffers. Do you have any advice for other students considering studying abroad in France?
It won't be enough. Give yourself logistical space to breathe, to get swept away by the city, country, program, and people and take the unlikely internship that keeps you here a little longer, that bleeds into a gap year or a second degree and ends up with a French network that keeps you coming for years to come.
You'll just end up with an non-refundable ticket home and a smirk. But that's not so bad, either. So better yet, however you get here — pinpoint-scheduled or Summer of Love free falling — just make sure you get here. Students spend their first two undergraduate years in Menton and then go on a year abroad to complete an internship or studying at one of Sciences Po's partner universities.

The Middle Eastern and Mediterranean programme consists of a multidisciplinary core curriculum in the social sciences economics, law, history, sociology, political science with a focus on the political, economic and social issues in Mediterranean countries, the Middle East and the Gulf. Courses are delivered in French, Arabic and English, and students also take additional foreign language classes in English, Arabic, or French as a second language.
For complete beginners in French and Arabic, the Menton campus offers intensive courses to start learning these languages.
The Menton campus offers dual-Bachelor's degrees , where students spend two years in Menton followed by two years at a foreign university. The Menton campus is home to a close-knit and friendly community of students. The small resort-town of Menton offers the ideal atmosphere for an exceptional undergraduate experience. Japanese, economics and Asia. Here, some students from around the world take the Undergraduate College programme in English with a special focus on the countries of Asia.
At high school, I learned Japanese, I was really into economics and I wanted to do humanitarian work in Asia, so Le Havre was my first choice. And it was also an opportunity to work in English, which is the language of instruction and the common language on this campus. After the summer I'm leaving for two years in Japan, as I've been accepted for the dual degree programme between Sciences Po and Keio University.
On this campus, 60 percent of students are international students! In this multicultural community, the BDE has a responsibility to help people integrate. It must make sure there is a good campus spirit and that everyone feels "at home". For this to work, we have to avoid organising events only for the French community.
There are festive events, the classic orientation weekends and gala dinner, but big nights out clubbing are not necessarily what will appeal to the most people! We have to take cultural differences into account, invent other types of get-together, and above all propose a variety of options — we've organised a karaoke party and a "casino" night for instance. Very well. Students are very close on this campus. When you go abroad in third year, you're really leaving your second family!
The special thing about this campus is how harmonious it is.pl.boqewuveme.tk

It doesn't feel competitive but motivating. Everyone wants to share their talents and propose initiatives. I am always appreciative of the students I mix with; they have amazing personalities. In fact, I've met people here I would like to work with in the future. For parents no less than for graduates, the graduation ceremony often marks the end of an era. The next stage will see their sons and daughters leave the nest for good to embark on whichever career they choose from the limitless possibilities now open to them. On graduation day, parents look back at the years gone by, recall the path their children have followed, and reflect on how they have blossomed during their studies.
Au prisme des mots
For the Sciences Po faculty and staff, graduation day is the opportunity to bid graduates farewell, and also to thank the parents for having entrusted Sciences Po with their children. This two-week programme started in Singapore and ended on the Sciences Po campus in Reims.
During the programme, I was further motivated by the interesting ways in which we can study and talk about food. These are ideas and concepts that we may forget to appreciate, especially since food is something that is closely connected to our day-to-day activities.
I have definitely learned to be more observant and critical about food and the space in which it is presented. After the trip, I was searching for a recipe to make a Napoleon cake and I was much more aware about how the recipe books were written. The different presentation of the recipes, as we learned in class, would attract different groups of people who have different needs and expertise. I find myself being more critical of these issues after my time at Sciences Po. I very much appreciated the class on champagne tasting and the tour of this Michelin-starred restaurant and its kitchen.
Observations of the diners, the way in which the restaurant organises how diners sat and dined — these were factors that affected how diners perceive the food and experience they pay for and which contribute to the rhetorics of food.
