So, let's be honest, going to Ecuador and Chile is nothing like going to Europe. At all. It is 20x better. Sure, you are going to mess up your Spanish, you are going to get lost and you are going to have those days that you miss home. However, more importantly, you are going to have those moments where you are backpacking in Patagonia, visiting a cool hipster neighbor to get coffee or having someone think YOU are Chilean and asking you for directions. Then, you start feeling like you can do anything. This program is fantastic. You create amazing relationships with other SU students, Chileans and students from all over the world; you really solidify your Spanish abilities; and you have the opportunity to embrace any type of adventure that fits who you are. Don't miss the opportunity to live fully immersed in another culture because this is truly the only time in your life you will be able to have an experience quite like this and it no other program at SU can really offer this same level of immersion.
