Top 10 Instagram Memories

by Zander Willoughby | May 04, 2017
Life is stressful here in Strasbourg, France after the first round of the French elections. As I’m sure you’ve seen, Emmanuel Macron came in first place and Marine Le Pen came in second. They will go into a runoff election 7 May. Macron is expected to win by at least 40%, mais il faut jamais dire jamais. We’re on edge, but less so than a week or so ago. Between the election and preparing for exams, for this week, I’d like to share with you a few of my favourite Instagram pictures while studying abroad. If you want to see them all, check them out HERE. Here it goes! 1. Les Ponts couverts | Strasbourg, France If you google Strasbourg, you’ll see the Cathedral, the European Parliament, and Les Ponts couverts.

  6. Bev Ott’s Sheep | La Gauchérie aux dames, Vihiers, Pays de la Loire, France

    I had the pleasure of staying with Bev Ott ‘80 and her family near Angers over Christmas. I loved helping out with her sheep and learning about ECHOPPE.

  7. European Parliament | Strasbourg, France

    I’ve had the amazing experience of interning in the European Parliament when it’s in Strasbourg this year. It’s been an unmatched learning experience. I also had the opportunity to participate in Semaine européenne through SciencesPo this semester, a week-long model EP programme.
