SA: Penn Semester in Lyon

Program Abroad:

  • Semester Abroad (SA): Penn Semester in Lyon, France

Ask me about...

  • Being a direct exchange student

  • Taking classes with French students in French

  • Staying with a host family

My Experience Abroad:

All of the courses that I took abroad transferred to Penn and counted towards my major. The political school of thought in France is different than in the US, so learning from a new perspective was valuable. 

Other Highlights:

  •  Unique group trips with Penn

  • Having the opportunity to travel around Europe

  • Having lots of unique, cultural experiences with my host family

  • Vastly improving my language ability
