There are only three weeks left of the semester – which is hard to believe! November is a busy time of year at DIS. Current students have gone on week-long Study Tours, visited unique companies and organizations on Field Studies, and are now preparing for final assignments.
Check out some of the DIS Student Bloggers latest posts to see what they’ve been up to this month:
Cold War Bunkers
Andrew toured the Cold War Museum Stevnsfort with his Enemy Within: Spies and Espionage in the Cold War course.
Intelligent Robots, the Louvre, and the Catacombs
Caroline traveled to Paris for her week-long Study Tour with the Affective Neuroscience: Emotions, Cognition, and Behavior Core Course. Her class learned about the use of robots in social learning, had a guided tour of the Louvre, and visited Paris’ spooky Catacombs.
A day on Refshaleøen
John shows you the hidden gems of Refshaleøen – a former industrial shipyard turned hipster hotspot. Follow his day from a morning coffee in Lille Bakery to a New Nordic style meal at the waterfront restaurant La Banchina.
Cal traveled to Ireland for his week-long Study Tour with his Core Course, Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Europe. The class visited Google’s Headquarters, toured Malahide Castle, and practiced pitching their final projects to Catherine Moonan – a pitching coach on the show Dragon’s Den (the UK equivalent of Shark Tank).
Venison Tartar Anyone?
Gwen made venison tartar with her Anthropology of Food course. While eating, they discussed the pros and cons of hunting as an alternative to farming meat.
Castles, afternoon tea, and positive prisons
