Hamilton in France

Student Life

In addition to our group events, Hamilton in France strongly urges students to become involved away from the English-speaking student community and to participate in the many activities that Paris has to offer. Consider the following options:


Student Organizations or Independent Associations

Paris universities have many student groups that organize activities around special interests (sports, travel, hiking, etc.), and the city abounds with special-interest associations.


Community Classes and Volunteering

The program office maintains information about courses that usually are offered for free in various city districts. Program staff  will help students find volunteer work.

Student Teaching

Students interested in volunteer teaching may register through a program in which they teach three to four hours a week in a Paris lycée or collège.


Social Activities

The program may co-sponsor receptions with French student organizations and encourages students to make suggestions and assist in planning events. A French student assistant is available to meet with students for weekly conversation and to answer questions about university life.


Sports

Students seeking competitive play may join local athletic associations. Opportunities abound for joining soccer, basketball, swimming and volleyball teams. Interested students should investigate possibilities before or upon arrival in France because memberships are usually annual and the  season may run from October through May.
