Program Reviews:
Summer - One Month 2017 Participant
Take the initiative to take what you learn in each class and apply it to what suits you. Abroad you have many opportunities to learn about culture, history, and language. Take those chances to take what you learn in the classroom and apply it in real life. Whether that be traveling to a city your teacher recommended, practicing your foreign language skills in day to day life, or diving into the culture and history of your host country; take the opportunity before you are abroad and during your time abroad to think about what you hope to get out of this experience, and how you hope to live that experience out.

Roon C Johnson, Fall 2016 Participant
I learned that this is an experience you can't quite some up to someone that asks, "how was you study abroad?" It was an experience that was so unique to me and the people I shared it with. I also learned to be flexible and open. I originally had an apartment and it was terrible. I was about to suck it up and just get through it, but then I met these Portuguese guys that showed us where they lived. They had an open flat below them and the next day my roommate from KU and I moved across Madrid. It was the best decision I made because we met our group of friends through this move. Being flexible and able to make decisions on the fly helped me more than I can convey.

Fall 2018 Participant
I found connecting with students from Germany, The Netherlands, The U.K., Turkey, France, Australia and of course Spain really rewarding and comforting knowing we're all students with similar interests and goals as well as struggles.
