What is an alumni weekend? How is this one different?

The IES Abroad Alumni team hosts weekends at select Centers around the world where alumni can reunite with their classmates, revisit their old stomping grounds, and make new memories with friends and family. In 2020, there are seven Alumni Weekends in different cities with unique activities in celebration of 70 Years of IES Abroad.

I did not study in Paris, can I still attend?

Yes! The event is open to all those who studied abroad with IES Abroad or IES Internships.

Can I bring friends and family members?

Absolutely! In fact, we encourage it! Make sure to purchase the appropriate amount of tickets and record their information.

What are my airport, transportation and hotel options?

Attendees are responsible for their own transport and accommodations. We recommend arriving at the Charles de Gaulle or Orly airports. See our Return to Paris Guide for a list of recommended hotels, restaurants, and popular activities in Paris.

What should I bring to the event?
