Hes-so Valais

The gravity-defying class photo in Valais Switzerland

This year, the HES-SO Valais-Wallis, a Swiss university of applied sciences, reached new heights when some of its students, supervised by professional mountain guides, went to the top of the Pierre Avoi mountain for the highest class photo in Switzerland. This unusual picture shows them suspended at right-angles to the rock face. At the university, as in the photo, professional support and an amazing setting create a unique experience for students.
