Elisabeth in Paris

Elisabeth is a junior majoring in journalism from Denver who is participating in SMU-in-Paris this summer. She’s looking forward to learning art history inside The Louvre and traveling to the Loire Valley.

Waiting for Paris

The thought of spending five long, amazing weeks in Paris and the surrounding areas not only excites but enthralls me. I feel privileged to get to study in a country besides my own. Rather than sitting in Meadows learning art history through slides I will be exploring the halls of the Louvre and other amazing museums. Not only will I learn about French history in class but also everyday on the city streets of Paris.
I am energized about the opportunity to finally “live” like a Parisian. Each time I return to Paris it feels more and more familiar. I have been itching for the chance to live there since the day I left 4 years ago.
It will be a completely different world with new faces, new streets and new places to go and I can’t wait for it all to begin.
As they say in France, “A tout a l’heure.”
