Student Life


Paris offers countless cultural, social and educational opportunities, and Hamilton in France urges participants to seek them out beyond the program's own group activities. Involvement with artistic, cultural or social associations is the best way for students to integrate and build a Parisian lifestyle.

The program staff will help students locate activities; then students make their own arrangements to participatie. Hamilton in France may reimburse a portion of the costs. Consider the following options:

Student Groups

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

Community Classes,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.

Social Activities

The program may cosponsor 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. There are many opportunities 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.

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.
