Paris is one of those rare international hubs of political, economic, cultural and intellectual life that has fascinated the world for centuries. Students encounter French culture through classes taught in French by some of the country's most prominent professors, internships, French family life and other activities that make use of the rich academic resources Paris has to offer.

On the bridges crossing the Seine, the sides are covered in hundreds of locks, mostly from tourists, who then throw the key into the Seine. It's a romantic tradition, often in view of the Eiffel Tower, that couples from all over the world come to do in the City of Love. They come to make a statement: that their love is everlasting and unbreakable, and their lock stands as a reminder for the rest of the world to see.
