Student Profile - Sam Garcia
"I chose to study abroad in Santiago program because I am deeply interested in Latin American history and culture. As such, I was eager for the opportunity to live in Chile and to take classes largely focusing on the region's history, political development, and literature."
Student Profile - Sierra Killian
"While in Santiago, I learned more about what I value and about how to take advantage of my current stage of life. I came to more highly value having conversations one-on-one and also enjoyed spending time with small groups, but I realized that it is perfectly fine to take time to myself when I need it."
