Yes, I recommend this program

An amazing experience with some room for improvement.

Generally speaking, my experience with CSU:International Programs is a life changing one. I would have never learned what I have learned both in and out of the classroom, I would have never been able to test myself with my comfort level with the language, I would have never been able to make the life long friendships that I have without be a part of the CSUIP program.

However, there were instances when I had to think to myself, "What was this for?" One example was all the paperwork that was required of us before departing the United States. The Apostle of the Hague and the police background checks were all very difficult to obtain, especially when there were no clear instructions, but also, upon arriving in Madrid, the director told us that those documents, which cost money but also time, were not necessary; that they were only required by the US government not the Spanish government.

Another part where I felt that I did not have spectacular support was with the director at the time. There is a new director now, but my director would not back me on my studies. He told me that I was not "advanced" enough to be registering for the classes that I wanted to, and "highly suggested" that I register for a less advanced course. I was not only offended by this, but also felt that he did not have my best interest in mind and that he did not want me to challenge myself; in turn, he did not want me to grow.
