Best experience of my life!
Submitted by Kimberly Rabeiro - East Stroudsburg University | October 24, 2016
Spending 9 weeks of my summer in Barcelona, Spain was one of the best decisions of my life. CIS helped me so much transitioning into a new culture with a new language. I enjoyed all of the activities, day trips, and weekend trips planned that helped students fully immerse into the culture and try new things. I loved living in a home-stay because it allowed me to learn so much more about the Spanish culture as well as try authentic food. I was very comfortable in my living situations. I have made such a strong bond with my host family as well as other locales I have come to know during my time there.

An unforgettable semester
Submitted by Alexa - James Madison University | October 21, 2016
My study abroad experience with CISabroad was truly one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I was able to make lasting friendships, experience an amazing new culture, study a new language, and have a deeper appreciation for diversity. While living a block away from the Sagrada Familia, I attended class at the University of Barcelona. I was able to expand my Spanish skills while meeting other students from the United States, as well as students from all over the world. With CISabroad, I also got the opportunity to go on cultural excursions to other parts of Spain. Our CISabroad mentors were very helpful and provided us with resources so we could make the most of our time in Barcelona. I highly recommend this to anyone considering studying abroad! My semester in Barcelona was an experience I'll never forget.

Summer in Barcelona
Submitted by Lauren Ferguson - University of Tampa | October 19, 2016
This past summer I studied abroad in Barcelona, Spain for six weeks. During these six weeks I met amazing people through the program that I am still in touch with today. This program also allowed me to grow and mature as an individual by placing myself in unfamiliar situations. I was able to experience a culture that I would never be able to find in the United States, thanks to program sponsored events such as dance and cooking classes. I highly recommend studying abroad, especially with CISabroad.
Best decision I've made at college

Deciding to study abroad in Rome and Barcelona through CISAbroad's Mediterranean Culture program was the best decision I made for my academic career. I met great people, took great classes, had memorable experiences, and learned and immersed myself in cultures all throughout Europe. If you are even considering partaking in this program, then do it! When you are picking classes for Rome, make sure you pick On-Site Roman Archaeology. I went to historical sites all throughout Rome that I would've never gone to if it wasn't for this class. Studying abroad is one of the best decisions you can make while in college. It's a great way to get to know people from all over the globe while completing classes for your degree. CISAbroad and their faculty could not have been more helpful in the entire process. They are always engaging and there to help you throughout your time in Rome and Barcelona. Don't miss out on these two amazing cities and what they have to offer in expanding your global horizons.
Summer in Perugia, Italy
Submitted by Hannah - Immaculata University | October 18, 2016
I absolutely loved Italy. The CISabroad program helped ensure me that I would be safe, a fear of mine since I was traveling alone, and made everything I needed to do easy to follow. I highly recommend CISabroad for any study abroad programs. I would definitely return to Italy, and would definitely travel again through CISabroad! With so many options, CISabroad will help you get to any destination!
