Reflecting its ongoing commitment to global learning, St. John’s
University unveiled renovations to the main courtyard of its Study
Abroad location in Paris, France, with a March 7 ribbon-cutting
attended by students, administrators, and French dignitaries.

wrought-iron gate at the courtyard’s entrance emphasizes easy
access to the rue de Sèvres and all that Paris has to offer.
