Newbie in Lausanne / Préverenges

Hi all, I'm Simon, and I've just moved to Lausanne from the West Midlands area of England. I'm a postdoc in evolutionary biology over at UNIL, staying for 2 years. I'm living near the city centre at the moment, but I'm moving out to an apartment in Préverenges in December -- looks like a nice area.

I'm interested in photography (think I've come to a good place for that!), running, and playing board games, as well as pubbing / clubbing the night away. Hope to meet some of you guys!

Hello Simon!

I am no postdoc but still doc, but wanted to give you shout out in the area! We will reinstate Book Club in Morges, if that floats your boat, Preverange is lovely, the beach the beach....ahhh.

Enjoy the pretty decent weather we are having right now, and if you don't feel shy, you can organize an event yourself in the social event subforum, there is a bunch of us here.

Cheers.

Welcome Simon!

I work at UNIL too, albeit in Arts! Hope you enjoy our lovely campus and its ever-growing flock of sheep!

Re: Newbie in Lausanne / Préverenges

Thanks for the warm welcome guys -- nice to know there are friendly people in the area!

The wine and cheese night on Friday sounds good, I will come along to that for sure. I am also up for the book club!

Re: Newbie in Lausanne / Préverenges

Welcome Simon,
Good to see that you signed up for the cheese event

After the cheese tasting...

It's a great way to get to know the EFers.

Hope you enjoy Switzerland and Lausanne.
Cheers,

I'm in Civil Engineering... Do you know if there are any after work campus drinks that are ever organised?? It'd be good to meet people from other departments (not that I don't love my lab of course!)

Re: Newbie in Lausanne / Préverenges

Welcome to Lausanne / Préverenges...

I currently live in Préverenges... it is a nice place to live. Except for the lack of recycling facilities... for those who don't drive, it's a bit of a pain.

Am curious as to where you're moving to as I overheard an English speaker being shown round my apartment block last week!

Hey V, I'm moving in to one of the blocks on Chemin de la Taudaz -- I didn't visit last week though!
