Let us build the “France Alumni” network of Louisiana!

A MESSAGE FROM MR. GREGOR TRUMEL, CONSUL OF FRANCE IN NEW ORLEANS:

We are working to develop a network of all students who have studied abroad in France as part of a program offered by his/her university, or have been an intern or received vocational training in France. You could also be part of them. We invite you to share, with your students and former students, on your social network or website if you can this page: http://www.consulfrance-nouvelleorleans.org/FRANCE-Alumni-USA-2722.html that you can also find in French: http://www.consulfrance-nouvelleorleans.org/FRANCE-Alumni-USA.html

In addition, I remind you that we will soon organize a "France Alumni Louisiana Launch Party" event that will allow you to meet other alumni. We will be inviting all new registered members of France Alumni and all the heads of various international programs of Louisiana Universities. This will be a great opportunity for alumni to network and to meet the Consul General of France and his team. 

Louisiana should be #1 !
