    Amazing Experience
    07/27/2015

    I had the time of my life studying abroad in Alicante, Spain through USAC. The city was the perfect size for me. There was plenty to do there without traveling, but it was also very well-connected and easy to get to other places. The beach is beautiful, the neighborhoods are safe and the people are friendly. Universidad de Alicante was a 25 minute tram ride away, and I really liked all of my professors. It's easy to make Spanish friends if you sign up for the Intercambio program, which gets you in touch with Spanish students who want to improve their English. It's a great way to meet locals, improve your Spanish and help someone with their English all at the same time. The USAC staff was incredibly helpful. They sorted everything out when I lost the keys to my apartment at 5 am on a Sunday and even helped me get tickets to a Real Madrid game. I can't recommend this program enough.

    One of my favorite things about my time in Alicante was that the USAC staff provides you with so many opportunities and fun adventures like tutoring kids in English or the hiking, running, or film clubs. They also take the time to find ways to show you areas around Alicante itself, and they make a day trip out of it filled with hiking at a beautiful spot. Then they surprised us with a huge picnic at the top, and took us to the beach afterward for the rest of the day. It was especially awesome because you KNEW that the staff cares about their students and really wanted us to get the best out of our experience in Spain.

    If you want Italian Culture, go to Viterbo
    07/22/2015

    Italy is charming- it is a slower pace of life, the people are friendly, and the cobble stone streets make perfect Instagram pictures. I expected to travel Europe, but Italy left too much to see in 4 short months- though I left the country a few times, I just wanted to explore Italy. I could tell you about all the famous landmarks in Italy and what they looked like in person- Leaning Tower of Pisa really does lean, and nothing compares to the hillside towns of Cinque Terre.
    Though the landmarks are stunning and the history unfathomable, Viterbo is all about culture. The food, the architecture, and the people are unmatched in Viterbo. If you want Italian Culture, go to Viterbo. Also, if you want the best gelato ever, go to Viterbo.

    You'll never want to leave!

    Studying abroad with USAC in Bilbao/Getxo was the best time of my life. I loved living on the beach in Getxo and being able to take the metro into the city of Bilbao for school. This city is one of a kind, and each person you meet is too. I lived with a local family, and that improved my Spanish ten fold!

    How could this program be improved?

    This program could be improved if there were more activities to integrate American students with locals, but there were the intercambios, so I guess it was more up to the students to get out and mingle in the community.

    Ireland is an incredible place and USAC made it even better. I always knew I wanted to travel to Ireland. With the field trips USAC offered, I was able to see the beauty of the Irish countryside and people.
    Having our resident director, Mary, there was a great resource for us. She was always there to help and on trips she would tell us stories about her life living in Ireland which gave us a great perspective and made it very special.
    The classes I took were incredibly interesting and gave me the opportunity to interact and make friends with the locals.
    Overall, Cork, Ireland was the best experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone and everyone!

    How could this program be improved?

    As always, there are going to be some issues with housing, but the landlord was pretty good about fixing things.
