More Than Just Academics

I studied with the CIEE Open Campus Program in Cape Town for six weeks, along with two other locations. Cape Town was by far my favorite. The faculty and staff are so kind and helpful every step of the way. The locals and fellow students are friendly and outgoing. The food is amazing. Cape Town has something for everyone: city life, mountains, beaches, arts, sports, adventure and shopping. The coursework is rigorous, yet extremely rewarding. Studying with CIEE in Cape Town helped me grow academically, professionally, and personally.
