"My semester in Madrid was unforgettable. I will always treasure the time spent exploring new neighborhoods and experiences with my friends, my family away from home. I never expected to learn this much from any study abroad program, but my experience in Spain truly opened my world to international opportunities that I want to be a part of." - Soleil Gaffner ‘19
