“Straddling the mighty Rhône and Saône rivers between Burgundy and Provence, Lyon has been among France’s leading cities since Roman times. In spite of its workaday, business-first facade, Lyon is France’s most historic and culturally important city after Paris. You’ll experience two different-as-night-and-day cities: the Old World cobbled alleys, pastel Renaissance mansions, and colorful shops of Vieux Lyon; and the more staid but classy, Paris-like buildings and shopping streets of the Presqu’île. Once you’re settled, this big city feels relaxed, welcoming, and surprisingly untouristy. It seems everyone’s enjoying the place — and they’re all French.” (https://www.ricksteves.com/europe/france/lyon)
Students will reside in the city of Lyon, France and visit various historical and cultural sites in the city. Following their stay, each student will select one aspect of Lyon to reflect upon. The subject selected can be a person, place or event.

Projects will be posted on a social media public forum, which will enable the host institution to engage student perceptions. This provides students with the opportunity to engage in a community dialogue in regards to their work. This should not impact student perspective or analysis. Your professor and the host institutions are interested in a genuine experience and honest reflection.
