CIS Abroad helped me in many ways in choosing the right program for me. The advisors and alumni network were great resources when picking a place to study. I lived with a host family which was an amazing way to learn and be a part of the culture, and it also helped me with my Spanish as well. Also, CIS Abroad is one of the most affordable programs to study abroad, and it includes more than most. Post-program, I now know a lot more about traveling safely and more about a latin culture.
