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.

Spring 2020 Participant
The most rewarding part of the program was the cultural experience. Staying with a host family was a great part of that experience. I was able to practice my Spanish, and discuss different views and ideas with them. Another part of the cultural experience I gained was from exploring the city; going to muesems, parks, clubs and bars, or just walking down the streets. I was also able to explore some smaller historic cities close to the Madrid area. It was very rewarding to me to learn about the history, language, and culture of a new place.

Fall 2019 Participant
My favorite part of the program was its location. Madrid is an incredibly exciting and diverse city. You are guaranteed to see people from all over the world, hear many different languages, and find just about every type of food just by walking through the streets. Madrid has an amazing nightlife, so there are always things to do and opportunities to meet new people.
