Solistes Européens Luxembourg

Thanks to the coordination by Professor Backes and the generosity of the Solistes Européens Luxembourg (SEL), MUDEC had the opportunity to attend SEL's annual "Concert Surprise." It was a wonderful evening and students enjoyed the beautiful setting of the Philharmonie.

SFC Halloween Decoration Event

On Wednesday, the Student Faculty Council got in the spirit of the season and hosted a Halloween Decoration Event. Students from the University of Luxembourg even joined in the fun. There was also "study tour storytelling" over pizza. The château looks great!

Magic of Alsace Discovery Tour

On Saturday, students will depart for the Magic of Alsace Discovery Tour! We will explore Colmar and even venture up into the Vosges mountains to see monkeys at the Montagne des Singes. We will also dive into Alsatian history and culture in the neighboring towns of Riquewihr and Kaysersberg, before seeing traditional bird-of-prey in a castle setting at the Volerie des Aigles.
