"On my study abroad trip, I learned a number of lessons. One being that problem solving and fun can be intertwined. I not only had to navigate myself around Madrid, Spain, but I also had the opportunity to learn about the country's rich history and culture. Both of these experiences created an amazing study abroad trip for me!"
"Before the trip began, my biggest concern was how to act around the people in Madrid. But that feeling lifted once I experienced the program leader’s kindness and direction, which made me feel immediately at home."
