Keep your valuables in a internal zippered pouch in your backpack and drink lots of water! This was the best trip of my life and I initially thought 2 weeks was a lot of time, but it flew by so quick. Take lots of pictures and take every opportunity to do things like go to the store or walk to town. I loved ziplining and the waterfall but I wish the waterfall was more of a private area where it was just our group and you could see the waterfall while swimming.

First, I can hardly believe that this is ending already. Since arriving in Granada, I was in awe of all the culture. But it wasn´t until soon after that the culture shock hit a bit too hard and suddenly I was surrounded by people I didn´t know and put in a classroom. It was a bit much to take in all at once. I think that every future participant should know that studying abroad is bound to be uncomfortable and that they shouldn´t feel guilty for feeling so or being homesick. However, the SOL experience was full of things to get my mind off how I felt, kicking off with some of the most amazing cultural experiences of my life. Up until the end it was filled with one of a kind experiences. On top of that, the sooner you have people to go out with, the sooner you have your own unique experiences like exploring the city, the country, or even other countries nearby. Those will make for some of the best stories. I can already tell that this has been a huge impact on my life and within this month alone I feel like I´ve grown and changed. As much as I´m looking forward to being back in the states, I don´t regret my experience here and I´m extremely thankful for it and how fortunate I am to have been in the SOL program.

SOL has created an amazing program in Granada Spain. Granada is one of the cleanest cities that I have been to and is also a very welcoming environment to learn Spanish in. From wandering the halls of the Alhambra to paddle boarding in Nerja SOL provides the absolute biggest bang for for your buck when it comes to study abroad programs. Their staff is also extremely helpful and cared so much about my well being that they escorted me to the dentist to help translate when I had an issue.

TRANSLATION: The SOL program was excellent in a few words. If you have the opportunity to visit Granada and study here do it. This will help you academically and help you improve your Spanish. It would be better if the university or the program would help you take classes with the native people here so you would make more connections than usual. Enjoy a lot with your family and if you do not feel good with them ask for the change or just talk to them. Meet people and enjoy the time you fly by!

El programa SOL estuvo excelente en pocas palabras. Si tienes la oportunidad de visitar Granada y estudiar aquí hazlo. Esto te va a ayudar academicamente y te ayudara a mejorar tu español. Seria mejor si la universidad o el programa te ayudar a tomar clases con la gente nativa de aquí así harías mas conexiones de lo normal. Disfruta mucho con tu familia y si no te sientes bien con ellos pide el cambio o solamente habla con ellos. Conoce gente y disfruta que el tiempo se pasa volando!

Studying abroad on the southern coast of Spain was an exprience I´d never expected to have been able to do, but I´m glad to have had the opportunity. I was there for a short four weeks, but was still able to see and do so much! The program directors were always available to answer any questions or concerns I had during the program, and the excursions were a lot of fun. I was able to connect with my host family at a personal level over shared experiences and interests, and my host mom also cooked some authentic Spanish food that was super delicious!

The weekend beach trip to Malaga was lovely for one day, but I regret not knowing it was Picasso´s birth city, I would have loved to learn about his life there and see some of his paintings.
