“Originally, I was dead set on going to the Madrid program, I had friends in Spain, and I’d taken Spanish in high school. However, a political science professor persuaded me to look into the Strasbourg program because of its classes. After learning more about the program through abroad fairs, I was drawn to the idea of host families, its location towards the middle of Europe and learning a completely new language, culture, and history.”

Victoria Amado in Spain

My classes abroad were some of the most rewarding work I have done. We got to experience everything we were learning in the classroom directly in the streets. All of the professors were so passionate about teaching us the ins and outs of Spanish life. One of my favorite courses was a Spanish course called De Madrid Al Cielo. We were reading and exploring Spanish literature, history, and society in the classroom, but the professor would include a wide range of places to visit, eat, and enjoy that was directly connected to what we were learning!
