Last month our students from the Model United Nations Club at the Paris Campus had the amazing opportunity of attending the Model United Nations Conference in New York. The Model United Nations conferences include interactions with Secretariat members and sessions are held at UN Headquarters in New York.
Our students went there as delegates representing São Tomé and Príncipe, an African island nation located in the Gulf of Guinea.
It was a 5 days conference discussing global issues in which our very own represented Schiller International University and made us proud.
Last month our students went on a trip to the beautiful Versailles Palace. The palace was built by the most extravagant French king – Louis XIV and used to be the royal residence. Playground of the French monarchs, Versailles was the center of royal and political power until the French Revolution. The palace is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and an emblem of the Golden Age of France. The students had the chance to see the opulent gardens of Versailles and the domain of Marie-Antoinette with their impressive collection of fountains and garden mazes.
In February some of the Paris Campus students went on a student trip to the beautiful city of Budapest. The Hungarian capital is a city with more than 1000 years of history right in the heart of Central Europe. It has a fantastic mix of fairy-tale architecture, soviet austerity and hipster cool. Our Schiller students explored the Parliament Building, the banks of the Danube river along with the main tourist attractions. The students loved the charm-filled Budapest and are already planning for their next trip to Greece this summer.
