Madeline Mask (Maddie) is a senior in the women’s college, majoring in English. Maddie spent a semester abroad in the beautiful Italian city of Perugia, learning Italian and taking courses in food studies. “I did not speak any Italian going into the program and it was a struggle to learn a language in a city that spoke little to no English. It was the most rewarding experienced to be challenged in every aspect of life from traveling, to ordering food and understanding cultural norms and differences.”
Grace Park, an education major, spent the spring 2017 semester in Spain in the vibrant city of Sevilla. “At my host home, I was practicing my conversational Spanish, eating lunch during the siesta hours, and getting accustomed to the relaxed life of Spain. The easy-going nature of the country opened my eyes to how life is more than just being busy and doing a lot of work. After experiencing the most lively three months of my life, I came back transformed and with a piece of Spain in my heart.”
