Party Scene: AUP is not a huge party school

Party Scene: The nightlife is alright, as in any big city there is an abundance of clubs and bars to choose from. Something to keep in mind is the transportation - for parties or otherwise. Public transport closes at around midnight, and cabs do not take more than four passengers, not to mention that the drivers will get progressively grumpier into the night.

Party Scene: There a Party for Every Kind of Person Be It Fun or Mellow. There are so many different parties at The American University of Paris(AUP) it hard to decide were to start. I would say that their something for everyone!!! When you first arrive to AUP there is a wine a cheese party where all of the incoming student meet for the first time and get to mingle with each-other and the professors. Aup also trows multiple cultural event parties every month. The student body will rent out a club Once at the start of the year and once at the end of the year which is super fun, not to mention having a club exclusively for AUP students and their friends. Transportation is amazing in Paris the metro goes everywhere probably 90% of everyone the lives here use the metro and Taxis are everywhere. This is really convenient for students because you never have to worry about drinking or driving.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

AUP hosts parties year-round, and they are usually held in the hotspots of the city. At these parties, you're likely to meet everyone you know and a lot of people you don't. There's something for everyone in Paris, whether it be packed into a crowded club, sitting at the bar, or dining with friends in a nice restaurant.

There are a lot of Web sites that list the agendas for a night out in "the City of Lights," and the Web is a great place to start if you're looking for somewhere to go. An even better place to start would be to call at least three of your friends, and it's practically guaranteed that you will have plans for the evening and an hour to get ready. If you're trying to avoid paying high club entries, get to the club a little earlier, since most clubs don't charge before midnight or 1 a.m. It also pays to be early since at the liveliest hours of the night, the lines will be out the door and around the corner. If you're looking to save money on drinks, then organize a pre-party with some friends to have some fun before you hit the actual dance floor. It's also good to keep in mind the amount you'll probably need for a cab home, since you could easily hit four or five places on a weekend night out with friends.
