This program was so amazing because it gave me the opportunity to experience a country and a culture entirely different than my own. Because I went with API, I did not know a soul in Spain. However, my program was fantastic and I was able to meet people from all around the world. I was placed in an apartment right in Sol, which is literally the heart of Madrid, and I could not have been placed in a better location. My classes and my professors did not speak English, so it was perfect because I had an amazing opportunity to be completely immersed in the language classes. I could not have asked for a better experience, and I would do it all over again the exact same way.

I chose SLU Madrid because they offer more classes that will transfer over. The challenging part was going to the school and not knowing anyone since it is not partnered with UD, but there are people from around the world. The school has a lot of field trips you can take with your classes which made learning fun. I made friends from all over the world and the school had a bunch of great events for all students through out the semester. I couldn't see anyone coming here and not liking it.

Antioch's WGSE program was one of the most rewarding experiences I've ever been through. I learned so much about women's issues, including general topics like history, theory, psychology, sociology, anthropology, philosophy, racial justice, cultural comparatives, and life in general. I really think this program made me a better-rounded person than I was before. Aside from that, I made so many friends from all over the world, who are so diverse from each other, and especially from the friends I have always been around. My world has opened up immensely.

Having an internship abroad is something I would HIGHLY recommend. It was amazing to be able to turn an average resume building internship to an incomparable professional and international experience. The ability to work abroad really gave a whole knew meaning to "adaptability" and "cultural understanding". The program I went with made finding work and living arrangements easy and stress free.

API takes you to a lot of places you wouldn't go otherwise. They definitely have well rounded activities for the students. The program directors were always available to help whenever needed.

API is the best third party organization in Buenos Aires. It is big enough to get reservations and make plans, but small enough to cater to every student and have a good group dynamic. Carmen is the best coordinator and really takes care to make sure your whole trip runs smoothly. She is very organized and handles every problem or issue very smoothly. She also is so energized about her job and makes the organization tick. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone looking to study abroad in Buenos Aires, API is the best. Also, Bs As is a very unique "latin american" experience because the culture is very European. Having spent time in Central America, the society and the people are worlds apart.
