Anais B and Viviane B on the Top of Cypress Mountain
Like Grenoble, Vancouver is surrounded by splendid mountains named Grouse Mountain, Cypress Mountain and Mount Seymour. If you are choosing among several winter activities such as snow tubing or skiing, snowshoeing is definitely a very nice way to enjoy the Canadian landscapes! It’s economical and gives a way to admire the sun passing through the conifers.
You can read below the little story of our first snowshoeing session on a sunny day! But snowshoeing is also enjoyable on a normal rainy day because it’s snowing in the mountains: we did it again with other students of the GEM Program in Whistler (the famous ski station which welcomed the Olympic Games in 2010) and we felt like entering the enchanting world of Narnia!
It’s December in Grenoble! This means snow-covered Alps and a busy GEM campus! The fall semester is in full swing! This year, the International Center of Affairs was proud to welcome 88 students from all over the world from countries like Singapore, USA and Brazil! But for some of our international students, December means the end of their time here! We will take this time to hear about their experience, and reflect on their integration in GEM.
Living in such a multicultural environment is a stimulating experience for musicians and music lovers. In our international school, the presence of many cultures is undoubtedly a chance to discover new musical horizons.
Founded in 1954, New Hall College was one of the only women constituent colleges in Cambridge after the Second World War. Today, five hundred people are studying there, but at that time, they were only sixteen and Cambridge had one of the lowest rate of woman graduating in the United Kingdom.
