Spring 2012 - French Presidential Election Campaign in Full Swing!

Spring semester 2012 is an interesting time to be studying abroad in France! With the French presidential campaign in full force, candidates are taking every opportunity to present their ideas on televised broadcasts and to rally supporters throughout the country.

CEA is following along and keeping Paris students in the presidential loop.  But with ten candidates in the running, things can get a bit confusing n'est pas?  Thankfully, the Student Services team has created a presidential cheat sheet, complete with the party names, the candidates running, the current polls, and bien sur, the caricatured puppets that have been created to represent them on one of the popular French satirical news shows (they never misses a chance for a good laugh - at the expense of all parties!).

Students who would like a more in-depth view of the French political scene (things are bound to get even more interesting mes amis!), are invited to a lecture given by Dr. Scott G. Blair on Tuesday, 03 April at the CEA Paris Global Campus!
