This semester’s cultural fair was held in the Hotel des Alpes, and with the picturesque backdrop of the Swiss alps, looked promising for an exiting evening of entertainment accompanied with some international delicacies. This time we had representations from the following countries, Algeria, Sweden, Belgium, China, Egypt, France, Indonesia, Italy, Lebanon, Morocco, South Korea, Spain, Thailand, United Kingdom and Ukraine.

Being a member of the Student Government Association (SGA) is, in my opinion, the highest non-academic rank a student can achieve at Glion.
