My semester with IFSA Butler in the capital city of Lima, Peru was by far one of the most exhilarating and stimulating experiences that I have had the opportunity to be a part of in my lifetime. From the wonderful people that supported and guided me during my 4 months to the exquisite cuisine that came from every corner of the country, I truly could not have been more fortunate. I also had the pleasure to travel around within Peru -- the southern desert, the high-altitude Andes, the northern Amazon, the western tropics.
Being in this program allows for an individual to get a satisfying semester of immersive studies while also having the liberty to experience everything that the country has to offer. That also comes with a grain of salt; you must go after what you want. Sacrifice is inevitable, but not detrimental. Your time abroad is how made by how you decide to spend it. I would not have changed a single moment of my time in Lima, Peru. That city gave me so much more than I could have ever asked for. It taught me how to seize independence. It taught me how to be a small fish in a big pond. It taught me what organized chaos looks like.
I highly recommend this location for anyone and everyone considering to go abroad.
