Not only did I grow in my knowledge and speaking of Spanish language and culture, but I made great lifelong friends! The staff was amazing and so supportive, if you were having a bad day or feeling sad, they would really ask what was wrong and actually cared about the answer. The housing and food situation was great and modeled college dorm life. I was in the group apartments and it was a great way to grow close to the group of girls in my apartment. The activities were also super fun and varied in type/ length, so everyone had an activity that catered to their interests. The elective classes were a great way to learn something specific (I took photography and learned a lot!), have a more chill class with your friends, and the teachers are all super sweet and caring. I am so glad I went and miss it so much!
