Joyeux La Fete Nationale! (Happy Bastille Day). Tomorrow, July 14, commemorates the storming of the Bastille prison during the French Revolution in 1789.
Transylvania students have opportunities to celebrate this national holiday while in France, either on a summer study abroad program or doing an internship in Normandy through Lexington’s Sister Cities Commission. During the academic year, semester programs are available in Caen, Nantes, Paris (several program choices), and Rennes, and periodically, students and faculty have participated in Transy’s Tour de France a three- week bicycle tour of southern France during May term.
Interested in studying outside of France? No problem. We offer opportunities for students of all majors to study around the world. Study abroad is so accessible for Transylvania students that nearly 70 percent of our students participate. You can study abroad and stay on track for graduation.
Can’t find the right program? We’ll help you create your own experience. Last year, our students studied abroad in more than 20 countries across the globe, including Norway, Ecuador, China, Israel, Chile, Japan, the Philippines and more.
You’re welcome to visit our Study Abroad Office website for more information. It’s never too early to plan!
Vive La France!
