Program Reviews:
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
Traveling. I was so empowered by my ability to navigate large European cities with no troubles. I feel as though my traveling helped me grow immensely as a person.

Fall 2019 Participant
Take advantage of the opportunity to relax. The school work was minimal, as I believe it should be. You will gain more of a lasting experience not in the classroom, but in the streets. Go on trips, make new friends, talk to people you never would have talked to. But also appreciate the city you are in. I was fortunate enough to be able to go on five trips in five consecutive weeks, and I found that by the end of it, I missed my host country. I spend the last few weeks of my remaining time soaking in as much as I could before I left. I found that studying abroad was much like going to KU as a freshman. That first semester was so important to me in gaining new experiences and friends, that it was refreshing to do it all over again years later in a different country.
