Student Life

Switzerland (officially the Swiss Confederation, Confoederatio Helvetica in Latin): Birthplace of Tourism, Hospitality and the Modern-day tourism.
200 years ago, the British named Switzerland "the healthy resort". Tourism is Switzerland's third largest industry, so leisure activities and entertainment are widely available and of course in keeping with the Swiss, high standard. Switzerland is also a small country and together with good transport infrastructure no where is far away so you have a wide choice of places for daytrips and weekends away.

Switzerland Tourism (ST) (Schweiz Tourismus, Suisse Tourisme) is a source of information and it is well worth visiting their local office to discover leaflets, brochures, maps and contacts they are able to provide. Look out for "Events in Switzerland" which lists by month all public festivals, musical events etc.. Local free newspapers also inform you of entertainment and events going on in your canton. Panorama and Scoop, Swiss News, Swiss World, Geneva News and Revue Switzerland are fustt a few of titles to look out for. You may also be surprised at the amount of theatre productions and musicals which are offered in the English language. It is however important to book well in advance as tickets sell fast.

Most towns also have cinemas (Kino, cinema) where films are generally shown in English language: with subtitles. You can find out what is playing by looking in your local newspapers. The film will be listed and then afterwards there will be a series of letters. The first upper case letter shows the original soundtrack, the subtitles letters are then shown in lower case. If a film is stated as being "kindervorstellung", "spectacle pour enfants" then it is suitable for children. You can also purchase books of discounts tickets valid for one year for use at your local cinema.
Whenever you first move to a new place it is always helpful to join a social club or organization to meet new friends and talk with people who have gone through the same experiences as yourself. You local community will also publish weekly or monthly papers which list forthcoming club meetings and sporting events.
