Paris: C'est une fete!
Students are regularly invited to take advantage of attractive group-rate tickets reserved by the Coordinator of Student Life for plays concerts (jazz, classical, dance), opera performances, and other events: suggestions are always welcome! Students are also strongly encouraged to get involved in independent co-curricular activities, as this is an excellent way to meet French people who share their interests; they may of course also join in activities organized by and for students of their host university. In recent years students have participated in chorus singing, bicycle excursions, intramural tennis, theater, ballroom dancing, hiking, ski trips, volunteer work, and church activities, for instance.
When it's time to enjoy some delicious French cuisine, students should strongly consider eating at one of the many University of Paris cafeterias/restaurants around town. At 4 euros for a three course meal, they can't be beat.
