What a great night!
Mid-November, the Texas A&M Landscape Architects and Urban Planners traveled to Paris to visit the French capital.
With a mix of cultural and academic activities, the excursion was a great opportunity to explore the unique architecture of Paris as well as the eclectic cuisine and historic places such as the palace of Versailles and the Eiffel Tower.
This is what Dacota F. had to say about the Paris trip:
“Our trip to Paris was extremely exciting, and truly remarkable. Being such a historical city, I know my whole class have been looking forward to this trip all semester. The city was absolutely break taking as we all expected, however, the best part of the trip was the truly enthusiastic tour guide Julian. From the moment we stepped off of the train, he was informing us about everything there was to know about Paris. He was with us every step of the way, and truly encouraged us to ask him any questions we had. From the first day when we got to go venture through the different districts of Paris and truly understand that the city hasn't been changed much throughout its history. Julian even brought up interesting facts about how to tell if a building was built before the 50s or after. The small things of that nature truly made it an amazing experience for us to be able to take in all of the knowledge he was telling us. The palace of Versailles was truly an unbelievable site to see. The elegance of the gate itself was truly a statement, but then the gardens in the back were truly beautiful. Getting to have a picnic in one of the most beautiful places on earth, was an experience that I will never forget. Not to mention that we go to the Louvre was just another great thing we go to do. The whole trip was full of experiences and adventures that I will never forget my entire life. Every corner there was another story to be told and another lesson to be learned. Overall, I am so thankful that AIB made it possible to experience everything that we got to. It was an amazing experience that I will never forget, and a true blessing to be a part of! (:”
The LMU Business, Arts and Communication students had the opportunity to visit the digital experts and entrepreneurs at Etventure Berlin. Etventure is part of the auditing and consulting company EY (Ernst & Young) and is still managed by the founders. Jaxon Kelly, Entrepreneurship and Business major recalls his experience:
“During our excursion to Berlin last month, we were all lucky enough to have the chance to meet with a very interesting and driven group of individuals; the members of Etventure. Upon our arrival we were welcomed with enthusiasm and were introduced to the team. Throughout our day at their Berlin office, the Etventure employees explained their concept of design thinking to us, a presentation full of case examples and relevant references that allowed all present to experience the energy of the process. As an added bonus to our day, a successful project created by a member of the Etventure team was able to give a presentation. We learned about the foundation and purpose of a new network called Mobilejobs and how it has grown from a startup into a successful business, a true image of what Etventure, and the concept of entrepreneurship itself, is all about.”
Get ready to be inspired! LMU Film Students visit Leipzig for the DOK Festival
Last week our LMU Film Students traveled to Leipzig, Saxony’s biggest city, in order to be part of the annual DOK Leipzig Documentary & Animation Festival. After adjusting to the new surroundings and getting a feel for the beautiful city center, we had no problem finding our way around and especially to all the small and sometimes huge movie theaters.
The first day was a lot of sitting in the bus, almost crossing the entire width of Germany, followed by a very windy city tour and a traditional group dinner. The next two days the students were off doing what they love: watching films all day. There was something interesting to see for everyone, since DOK Leipzig is one of the biggest Film Festivals in Europe for documentary and animation films, screening 340 films from 57 countries.
Fortunately, we were able to support Beryl Magoko, our AIB production assistant, at the premiere of her new film “In Search…”, which is nominated for four different prizes and has already won the audience award. In addition, we got to meet Leena Pasanen, the festival president, and learned a lot about how a festival is run and how the films are selected.
LMU Film Student 2018 Ellis S. says, "Leipzig was one of the most unique excursions of AIB’s study abroad program. Within the week we were there, we were able to watch powerful documentaries that you wouldn’t be able to see every day, as well as absorb a lot of Leipzig’s culture. It’s a trip I’ll never forget”.
Conveniently, after being inspired by all the different phenomenal documentaries, the final day of our Leipzig excursion marked the starting point of the students’ own documentary film production. They headed off into the shooting days, gaining new experiences, making new friends, and coming back ready to edit away!
