At the end of the AT to Morocco, after attending visits and/or conferences during the day and concerts at night for 8 days, i allow students to relax and go quadding in the dunes around the Castle in the Sand that inspired Jimmy Hendrix to write the eponymous song. At the end of the day, Jacob Weaver suggested we did a pyramid which may become the signature of this AT. With Fadi Alwazani (on top), Andrew Reed, myself, Andrew Buncher, Jacob Weaver, Samuel Miller and relaxing, Thomas Doyle. #FUSTuesdayTakeover #FranklinUniversitySwitzerland #DayAtFUS

How many professors does it take to click a selfie? Too many.....so we asked a student! Winding down with tea after a long day of teaching. #franklinuniversityswitzerland #FUSTuesdayTakeover #DayAtFUS

Dr.Marcus Pyka, Professor of History at FUS, says in his HIS 105/Global History course that the border between the Swiss canton of Ticino (where we are in Lugano) and the Italian region of Lombardy is one of the oldest land borders in the world. But, Franklin students can easily cross it every day as they walk across the bridge in Ponte Tresa into Italy. We go to buy groceries, eat at the great all-you-can-eat sushi restaurants, and enjoy another town on the shores of Lake Lugano. As a History major at FUS, I really appreciate living in a region so steeped in history. #franklinuniversityswitzerland #TuesdayTakeover #dayatfus #italy

My first job of the day: sorting mail, answering phone calls, and practicing my Italian at the FUS reception desk #work #FUSTakeoverTuesday #DayAtFUS #franklinuniversityswitzerland

starting my morning by catching up on my BUS 135: Introduction to Business Systems readings! This year, I declared my marketing minor and I'm thankful that I get to take classes outside of my Visual Communication Arts major! Franklin's belief in a diverse, liberal arts education allows me the chance to understand the world from different perspectives and that's why I chose to come to Franklin in the first place 💕#fustuesdaytakeover #dayatfus #franklinuniversityswitzerland

We start our last day of Academic Travel at the Ulster Museum. Today we are discussing The Troubles, the period roughly between 1968-1998 that was marked by civil conflict in Northern Ireland. #FUSTuesdayTakeover , #DayAtFUS , #franklinuniversityswitzerland #themoreyouknow #theulstermuseum

Lilly Carr helping me finish my final project for Introduction to Sculpture for Professor Margaret Glass. Professor Glass is a renowned sculptor with works on display at Museo d'Arte Mendrisio. I was so fortunate to take this class in the last semester before her retirement. #tuesdaytakeover #dayatfus #franklinuniversityswitzerland #art #sculpture
