5 College Sophomore

Administration: There are no campus police because there is no need. Drinking age in France is 18 so no problems there. There is a bar located in the main building of the university so one could say that the administration is pretty lenient when it comes to alcohol. It is also a common occurence to see students smoking marijuana in front of the main building with no repercussions from either Parisian police or school officials.

Administration: AUP doesn't have dorms so it's not really possible to get busted drinking. Plus, the drinking age in France is 18 so drinking is not a big deal at all.

5 College Junior

Administration: Considering that AUP is in the heart of Paris, the strictness is very different compared to a traditional university in the United States. As long as no one is being harmed or doing anything dangerous, anything goes.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: AUP is completely different from any college you'll find in the states. We have cocktail hour after convocation, and a welcome cocktail at the first meeting of your first classes - Firstbridge. The University has a bar on campus. Everyone from the States thinks this is really a novel idea and it's immediately liberating and at the same time a big step. AUP always tells us to drink responsibly and not do anything too crazy. It's pretty chill. However, if you're a study abroad student they will send you home if you cause problems.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Since students are really on their own in terms of housing and dining, AUP really gives students a lot of freedom and independence. They can live as "adults" rather than just "college students" in dorms and with meal plans. This can be scary for students away from home for the first time, and the lack of structure and rules is definitely something to consider.
