AIFS Program: France – Grenoble
Home University: Bates College
My name is Solaine Carter. I am from Tucson, Arizona. I am a rising sophomore at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine! The move from a hot/dry desert to a freezing cold climate was quite the shock. I choose to study in Grenoble because I wanted a small community where I could really work on my French language skills. Multiple professors at my college recommended Grenoble as a study abroad location and once I found out that it was close to the Alps I was sold! Fun fact: I’ve eaten a sea urchin and durian, but not at the same time!
