Yes, I recommend this program


Madrid is the best place you could ever go. The fashion is ridiculous, the people are amazing and the food is to die for. SU Madrid was one of the best decisions I have ever made and I wish I was still there. It's amazing how big of an effect a short period of time can have on your life. I love my host family and we still talk every other week. They are my second family, forever and always and I will be sure to go visit them again. Getting around Europe is so easy. Just really be sure to immerse yourself in culture that you are in and do not act like the stereotypical American that they already have you painted as. Make friends with locals, speak the language and be open to everything. You will fall in love with Madrid and everything this magical city has to offer you. There are not enough words in the English or Spanish language to describe this amazing experience.

What would you improve about this program?
Honestly, this program was perfect. I got everything out of it and more. I mean maybe a few more trips and making sure there is a fall break but other than that it was perfect.
