An experience of a lifetime!

I studied abroad in Costa Rica during my Fall 2016 semester of college. I was the person not really interested in studying abroad but ended up letting my mom talk me into doing it. I knew I wanted to go to Costa Rica and lucky for me CEA had a partnership with my home university and Costa Rica was one of the locations they offered. Throughout the application process and the preparation process CEA was there with me every step of the way. Any questions or concerns I had, my advisor answered them all in a timely manner. Once I got to Costa Rica and began living as a 'Tica', we had the support of our on-site directors Leo and Maggie! They were fabulous and truly love what they do. I was able to participate in so many local events because our directors would let us know about anything that was going on. I was able to meet so many friends, both Costa Rican and other Americans, and my Tica Familia (host family) was incredible as well! I miss it everyday and can not wait to go back soon! If you have the opportunity to study abroad, DO IT! I promise there is no way you could regret it. And if you are looking for the perfect program to study abroad with, check out CEA and all the great things they offer!

CEA Aix en provence

This program has been absolutely incredible. There have been so many people that we’ve met, so many places we’ve seen, and so many things that we’ve experienced. Our program leaders are the sweetest people on the planet, and want nothing more than for us to feel comfortable and happy during our stay here. The school is so incredible, and I feel like I’m actually learning the language. The program with CEA is called, French Language and Culture. The program itself definitely lives up to the name. We have been on so many cultural excursions in France as well as a really cool trip to Barcelona! We meet great new people who teach us so many things about french culture (including delicious food) and french language. I love this program and I honestly believe that this was one of the best decisions in my life, and I would definitely do it again in a heartbeat.

La bella vita

I was someone who never thought I would credit my time abroad as the best months of my life. I chose to go because I felt like this was my only opportunity to travel extensively. I believed that doing this would quench my thirst for international travel. I was so wrong.

It's been almost a year since I returned from my semester abroad in Florence with CEA. I have never wanted anything more than to rewind time and go back. I credit much of this to CEA and the onsite staff and experience they were able to offer.

Unlike many other study abroad organizations, CEA operates out of a small office building in the center of the city. This means classes are small and centrally located. Classmates are all American students going through the same nerve-racking, yet thrilling experience as you. This was so important to me as I was daunted by the idea of feeling lost at a large, foreign university. This also meant that I could arrange to go abroad with my hometown best friend who had taken a different path than me after high school. CEA made it both possible and easy to make these arrangements and ensure we would have courses together and ultimately be roommates. It was a four month long sleepover.

The onsite staff with CEA took care of us all as if we were there own children. I always felt safe and supported in anything I wanted to pursue. It was clear that the staff were there because they truly wanted to be, and didn't just fall into these job positions. I was able to have a constant source of information from these locals who offered parental-type care when desired. The onsite staff ensured we experienced authentic, cultural opportunities and planned many of these excursions: basketweaving with tuscan locals, wine tasting in a tuscan vineyard, book binding with a professional artisan, cooking class with an Italian chef etc.

I could go on and on about my experience, but nothing will truly convey how wonderful it was.
