Meet Philippe: from Madrid to Paris

Independence Day

Independence Day

Schiller International University in Paris wishes all American students Happy Independence Day!

May your day be filled with patriotic spirit and lots of fireworks!

There are nearly 100,000 Americans living in Paris and Americans have long been an important thread in the ever-growing diverse tapestry that is France. From Ernest Hemingway to Josephine Baker, a number of Americans have made important contributions or risen to fame in France.

So when July 4tharrives in Paris, both America and France take the opportunity to celebrate not only Americans living in Paris, but also the long-time bond between the two countries.

Every year on July 4th at Picpus cemetery in Paris, the American Flag that flies over the tomb of Lafayette (1757-1834) is changed in a ceremony in tribute to Lafayette’s contributions to the American War of Independence.
