Panrimo: What it means
Eons ago, the world was one land mass called Pangaea. Thanks to land bridges, ancient travelers could go anywhere they wanted on foot! Unfortunately, as Pangaea broke into separate continents, traveling became more difficult. Panrimo reconnects the world, making it easier for you to follow in your ancestors' steps.
In fact, that's what our name is all about: "pan" for Pangaea, on world, and "rimo", the Latin word for explore.
This is your journey, and we'll take you there!
JennyAge: 19-24FemaleMichiganMichigan State UniversityIt's on you11/20/2015Response from PanrimoHi Jenny! We're pleased to hear that your internship was a great fit and that your coworkers were kind and accommodating. We're also glad that Laura was very helpful, she's an excellent on-site coordinator! We do apologize that you experienced a lack of communication during the application process. Our staff in the US and abroad work extremely hard to make sure that we communicate clearly, and we are committed to improving this. One of the biggest benefits of living and working abroad is the independence that students experience, and the skills and maturity that they develop. We are continually adding more activities for students and coordinators to make sure there is a strong sense of community, without impeding independent exploration. Your feedback is very helpful for us as we continue to expand our program in Madrid and other locations. Thank you for taking the time to review us, and best wishes for all your future travels!

Leonor (the "coordinator" of the Hispanic Studies program for UC3M) is terrible and provided absolutely nothing. A lot of the logistics regarding school, Visas, and transitioning (SIM card, metro pass, bank account) were left up to me to figure out, although Laura was quick to offer assistance in any way she could.

My one complaint would be housing.
Not everyone was satisfied with their housing situation, but from our experiences in the homes we were placed in we gained life long friends and new connections that in-turn introduced us to new parts of the city.
Like I said before, this experience is what you make of it. So, don't spend time complaining, enjoy!

There could be more detailed and concrete job descriptions for the internships, just for preparation process. However, the communication between Panrimo and the participants is absolutely spot on.

If I had to change one thing about this program it would be to provide drop-off transportation for the airport.
