¡Hola! I’m a junior in SEAS studying Applied Math and minoring in Computer Science. I spent the spring semester of my sophomore year in the CIEE Engineering and Society program in Madrid, Spain. In many ways, I had the best of both worlds while I was in Madrid. I took classes for my major in English at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, a local bilingual university, but I still had a lot of opportunities to practice Spanish in my homestay and with students outside of class. I also found great friends in American students from the CIEE program that I could travel around Europe with while connecting with locals in the city. I’ve always enjoyed traveling, but studying abroad gave me the chance to really become a part of a foreign culture and ultimately see life from a different perspective. I wholeheartedly recommend it, and I’m more than happy to speak with anyone who would like to know more about studying abroad as a SEAS student, CIEE Madrid, Spain, or even just study abroad in general!
