Lausanne from Chicago

Hello all,

I'm a 22 year old american that has just arrived in Lausanne, and surprise surprise, I speak no French. While I work at EPFL this should not be a problem, but out in old town Lausanne I have yet to find anyone who can respond to me in English.

If there's any other English speakers trying to brave this city, shoot me a message and maybe we can do it together.

Nick

Hi nickolaus and welcome to the forum. I hope you'll find some neighbors here. If EPFL is only remotely similar to ETH, you should find tons of suggestions (read: flyers) on where to party. I like your profile.

Re: Lausanne from Chicago

ETH (Zürich) and EPFL (Lausanne) are the two universities of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology.

Re: Lausanne from Chicago

A self-declared nerd with a hotmail address? I retract my statement.

Have a nice weekend... soon...

Re: Lausanne from Chicago

Welcome Nickolaus! I think you'll find lots of like-minded people by attending our next social / drinks night (see this thread). We even have some regulars who work at EPFL and some Americans, so you should feel at home.
