Are you heading to the USA this fall to start university studies -- or are you thinking about studying in the USA in the future? Do you wonder what life is like as an American university student?

Parents and students are welcome to this "pre-departure orientation" hosted by CEDIES. Representatives from the US Embassy and EducationUSA, including current university students, will give short presentations on key aspects of student life. We'll cover opportunities like clubs and sports as well as adjustments like how courses are graded, what professors expect, and some cultural differences between Luxembourg and the USA.

Mostly, we will answer your questions and help you prepare!

Please RSVP if possible by sending a message to, but you are also welcome to arrive by 14h00 without notice.
