Semester abroad winds to a close
December 13, 2013

Just in time for the holidays, hospitality students will soon be on their way back to Canada after a great semester abroad in France.

In addition to a full schedule of classes, students are completing an internship and exploring the heart of the European hospitality and tourism industry – great experience that will impress future employers.

Last week the group toured an elite hotel in Baden Baden. They also explored an old castle in Heidelberg. On the eve of Dec. 5, they enjoyed a local tradition – each of them left shoes outside their doors and Santa filled them with candies and chocolates!

Busy with exams and final assignments this week, some students are still managing to squeeze in a four-day weekend to Barcelona while others venture to Ireland.

All of them hope their suitcases manage to close for the trip home.
