Various (Small Group) Activities Around Town

For those who want to join other Alums for some organized activities-- instead of breaking off and making your own plans-- we’ve got some ideas up our sleeves.

Choose from:

  1. Mini tours with AUP professors - REGISTRATION CLOSED
    • Christine Baltay, Associate Emerita of Art History, offers an intimate tour of the Musee Jacquemart-Andre. An overlooked jewel in the 8th arrondissement, this museum, and former home of Édouard André and Nélie Jacquemart, holds fascinating stories about the works it houses, as well as the patrons who once graced its residence.
    • George Wanklyn, Associate Professor Emeritus of Art History, invites alumni to return to Invalides and experience the rich history of le Musée de l’Armée. As part of the tour, Professor Wanklyn and guests will visit l’Eglise du Dôme to pay homage to the tomb of Napoléon Bonaparte – a complex figure in French history and one of its greatest military minds.
  2. Flea market Meet-up and shopping expedition - Meet at 147 Rue de Grenelle at 3PM SHARP to go to the World famous St. Ouen flea market.

Le 5 Codet
 5 Rue Louis Codet, 75007 Paris

REGISTRATION CLOSES SUNDAY, AT 5PM

*Pay Individually

Who knew when we all met “back in the day” that AUP friends would still be the best friends? We can’t wait to meet up with you this May, and from then on, it will only be a matter of when-- and where. Please join us for a last casual hangout as we toast a memorable weekend…until la prochaine fois!

We know we’ll all be tired from a whole weekend of awesome activities, so we aim to make our last night a low key sendoff.

We’re working on a great location for this (you know Sundays in Paris) and we’ll get you an update as soon as we have one. We promise, it’ll be great, and a fitting end to a wonderful reunion.

It's NOT TOO LATE TO REGISTER!

For maximum flexibility, we've made the whole weekend à la carte. All you have to do is select your choices below, then proceed to checkout.

Registration for Commencement and the GNG Gala are separate. However, you'll be asked to indicate whether or not you're attending these events at checkout so we can keep track of who is going where.

VERY IMPORTANT: Tickets are purchased one at a time. If you're buying on behalf of somebody else,  you'll simply need to repeat for each attendee. Let us know if you need help!

IMPORTANT: At the very end of registration, you'll be asked to summarize your choices. This is so we can let you know who is going to which events, and also so we can solidify locations. Please don't skip this important step! We'll update you with this information periodically.
