Student Profile - Ana Cabrera
"In Madrid I was able to take classes that I did not have the chance to take on campus such as a history class, and a flamenco class. On campus I was always worrying about checking off something in my major’s requirements, and being in Madrid allowed me to disconnect from that mentality and take classes that I really loved without checking a four year plan beforehand."
Student Profile - Alli Emge
"One of my primary goals was to improve my fluency in Spanish. Since the students participating in the Madrid program sign a pledge to only speak in Spanish, this goal was an easy one to meet.."
