Welcome New Students!

20160110_174035[1]The new year and semester has started. Students from Canada and the USA arrived in Strasbourg this month to start their EU Studies Semester at the castle.

After the first days of orientation in their new home and castle for the next months, we arranged a Get Together to get to know each other better: 37 students sitting on cozy blankets in a big circle – what a great cultural exchange! With the help of the game “Encuentro” it is easy to learn more about each other: students introduced themselves, asked and answered questions about their personalities, opinions, and life in general.

This interesting exchange of thoughts was the start for private conversations in smaller groups.

  • “Winter, spring, summer, fall – what is your favorite season?”
  • “If you could give your mother a gift what would it be?”
  • “What the caterpillar calls the end of the world the master calls a butterfly! What do you think?”
  • “What does friendship mean to you?”

Another highlight was the belatedly “Kings Cake”. In accordance with French tradition you eat this pastry on the 6th of January. A little ceramic figure is hidden somewhere in the cake – The one who finds it in his/her piece of cake gets the crown. We are proud to announce that we have 5 queens at our study center now.

So the first connections were made and may turn into unique friendships!
