Syracuse Madrid students make headlines in Spain

Syracuse University students currently studying in Madrid, Spain made their way onto the local news earlier this month. During their first week in Spain, while participating in the Syracuse Madrid Marine Ecology Signature Seminar, students partook in a unique activity giving back to the ecosystem that caught the attention of the local media in Alicante.

Torrevieja TV covered the story and noted the work of the Syracuse University students and their impact on the environment. Their volunteer work removing vegetation and plant life was a hands-on learning experience that demonstrated how different civilizations have “humanized” the Mediterranean environment.
