Greta Jusyte: Nightlife

Even though Reims is a small city, it has a pretty decent nightlife. Place d’Erlon is filled with bars, some of which are named after famous people who were not French, like Ernest Hemingway and James Joyce.

Greta Jusyte: Academics

Last week was my first official week as an exchange student at Sciences Po. The campus is extremely small and so is the student body. I feel like I’ve already met and recognize all of the students.
