Translated from French-Radio Campus is an associative radio station based in Villeneuve-d'Ascq, on the Cité Scientifique campus of the University of Lille (Building M1). Founded in 1969 clandestinely on Free Radio, it is one of the oldest associative radios in France. Radio Campus has inspired the creation of many other university radios which have adopted its name and which form the Radio Campus France network of which the Villeneuvoise branch is a member.
Suburban, residential Villeneuve-d'Ascq is known for the LaM museum and sculpture park, with works by Modigliani and Klee, and the Musée du Terroir and Musée des Moulins, examining rural life in northern France. Pathways, meadows, and lakes in Parc du Héron are popular with picnicking families, college students, cyclists, and fishermen. The retractable-roof Pierre Mauroy Stadium hosts rugby and soccer matches.
France, in Western Europe, encompasses medieval cities, alpine villages and Mediterranean beaches. Paris, its capital, is famed for its fashion houses, classical art museums including the Louvre and monuments like the Eiffel Tower. The country is also renowned for its wines and sophisticated cuisine. Lascaux?s ancient cave drawings, Lyon?s Roman theater and the vast Palace of Versailles attest to its rich history.
