Program Reviews:
Patrick Joseph Shreve, Spring 2018 Participant
My favorite part of this program was the way in which Comillas connected all of the study abroad students. From the first orientation and throughout the year, they offered opportunities for foreign students to get to know the city, take trips together, and go to language exchanges in which students from around the city gather and learn languages from eachother in local bars.

Drake Hamilton, Fall 2015 Participant
Being able to live in Madrid, practice my Spanish and experience the culture was the most rewarding experience for me. Also being able to travel and meet so many new people was incredible.

Roon C Johnson, Fall 2016 Participant
My favorite aspect of studying abroad was getting to live and socialize with people from all around the world. I was so happy to have gone to Madrid, It is such a vast and passionate city. Spain also has the best soccer to watch in the world. I was so happy to watch my favorite team, Real Madrid, play on a regular basis. I went to several matches and it was amazing. Hala Madrid!
