did you go to the technical engineering university by any chance? - is it a good school?
Actually in Brest, there are many (Telecom Eng, Electrical Eng, Bio Tech Eng...)
That's why Brest night life is quite.... interesting (1)
What is exactly the name and address of your Uni ?
If you are a kite or surf addict & still familiar with low temps, you'll love this town overlooking the sea with water temperature that oscillates between 10-12 (Jan) to 20 (Aug) degC ... due to the Gulf Stream presence.
Here are the wind stats http://www.windfinder.com/windstats/win ... _brest.htm
These airports stats don't take into account the summer thermal winds.:
For example, you can have 8 knots in Brest and 20knots at the "Dune de Sainte Marguerite" (30mins drive, Google earth Landeda/Aberwrac'h) a nice sandy & shallow water lagoon up North West close to the 3 Abers (local old keltic name for "fjords").
Every Eng Uni in Brest has a surf/funboard/kite/cata club.
