Thanks to all the AUP parents and families who joined us for “Coffee with the Founding Class Members,” where we discovered AUP’s past and present in a conversation with the first graduating classes of the American College in Paris.
AUP Memory Timeline
This March 27, the AUP community celebrates 60 years since our founding in 1962. We’re raising our glasses to 60 years of studying on the Seine; 60 years of late night discussions in cafés and lifelong friendships forged in the AMEX; 60 years of study trips around the world; and 60 years of priceless memories that continue to inspire us today.
We asked you, the AUP community, to share your most cherished moments from your time at AUP. Below are your submissions, realized as a memory timeline.
“I was lucky to have been a Student Advisor three times while at AUP and at every Orientation, the Bateaux Mouches ride was always my favorite session. It’s a one hour and ten minute stroll down the River Seine watching the sky transition from day to night. Absolutely stunning.”

“My favorite AUP memory is catching the northern lights during the cultural program trip to Iceland in April 2017. It was freezing and it took almost an hour or so of waiting to see them, but it was well worth the wait!”
