This documentary has been produced by Adjunct Professor Elettra Fiumi's FiumiStudios, and tells the story of experiential learning offered at FUS through the Academic Travel program, the most distinctive element of the Franklin curriculum. It enables students to embark on extended visits to study on location every semester and return to the classroom with different eyes, new knowledge, and perspectives.
The documentary shows, straight from the beating heart of our community, how this opportunity profoundly changes the student learning experience and gives them a chance to connect with their professors on a whole new level.
Finals are finally over, the campus already feels so empty as most students have traveled home for the Winter holidays. With all the fun and adventures from this last semester, it's hard to believe that it's once again the end of the year!
To keep our thoughts alive, let's enjoy a memory of one of the most memorable moments of every semester here at Franklin University Switzerland: Academic Travel!
