I recently realized that while I’ve been sharing my travel experiences, I’ve completely forgotten to talk about the reason I’m here: classes! I am currently taking International Relations and Multilateral Diplomacy, Peace Security and Stability, Research Methods and Ethics, and French. These classes will end in October and I will have one month without class to write a final research paper.

Our current classes are held at the SIT building in Geneva, but we also have excursions and guest lecturers. Here is a picture form a class trip to Lausanne.

My favorite class activity has to be our diplomatic simulation.
