You know what it’s like to fall in love—but Paris won’t break your heart.
You’ll want to spend all of your time admiring cultural icons like the Eiffel Tower and getting lost in the city’s exquisite art scene while studying abroad in Paris. On an average day you might savor the decadent French cuisine at a local restaurant and take a walk along the River Seine and wander aimlessly through the city streets for hours.
When you study abroad in Paris, every day is magnifique, and it’s all in the name of love. Je t’aime, Paris!

$5 Million in Financial Aid

Bring your favorite sweatshirt from home. It’s nice to have something cozy that reminds you of home, and it can get cold inside (radiator heat takes some getting used to and, at least in my host family, they air the house everyday by opening all the windows).
I really enjoy being outdoors and hiking, so naturally I had to go to Switzerland. Switzerland was up there with Greece on my study abroad bucket list. I have officially visited all of France’s bordering countries (with the exception of Andorra). I tried to get a group of friends to go, but no one wanted to go with me, so I decided to carve out some me-time and make it a solo trip.
