Yes, I recommend this program

CET Colombia is definitely a semester that I will NEVER forget and that has changed me for the better. I learned so much about my host country, the world, and even myself while on this program. I was challenged in new ways which was tough at times but it was 100% worth it and made my program so much more worthwhile. All of my professors were clearly educated in their fields and did a phenomenal job teaching the coursework. It was also super cool to be able to see what I was learning in the classroom about Colombian and Afro Colombian culture in real life when I would go out on program excursions or personal trips. 10/10 recommend!

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
If I could change anything about my program it would be how often I went out and explored by myself! I feel like I could've had so many more memories and adventures if I had ventured out more and made more Colombian friends on my own outside of the program and just explored the city more on my own.
