Phase II:

On Monday October 8 at 10AM, Service Electric will be upgrading their equipment located on Campus. We are anticipating a 30 minute Internet outage affecting the entire Campus. For this 30 minute timeframe, you will NOT be able to access the Internet.

Salesian Quote of the Day

Throughout the year in Annecy, cycling is an activity enjoyed by the locals. A dedicated cycling path linking the old town of Annecy to Faverges runs alongside the western shore of the lake. 40 kms long, it follows the old railway line which used to link Annecy to Albertville.

Tomorrow: Graduate School Fair

Over 15 Grad Schools attending!

Get connected! If grad school is in your future, be sure to attend this fair.
