Living the dream :)

I always wanted to study abroad and I wanted this experience to be in a Spanish speaking country and I am so happy Costa Rica became that country that I chose. I went through CEA provider and the faculty and administrations are super helpful and amazing. I had so much fun traveling all over the country and even crossing a few borders north and south of Costa Rica into Panama and Nicaragua. God bless you all and make your trip unforgettable.
Grooving in Grenoble
Submitted by Isabel Kinsolving - San Francisco | February 14, 2018
I was sold on Grenoble because of it’s location, nestled in the French alps, close to Switzerland, and a quick train ride to Paris and other well-known French towns. The school, Grenoble Ecole de Management, is a triple-accredited school, making it one of the rare business schools in France to achieve such a prestigious ranking. I had no ties to Grenoble prior to studying abroad here, and that was my favorite part. I wanted to test myself by putting myself in a completely foreign environment and fully immerse myself in a new culture. The fear of it all has led to me to meet the most international, outspoken, creative, and extraordinary group of individuals. I wasn’t expecting to meet anyone from California, let alone America, and I am pleasantly surprised that almost exactly that has happened.
I fell in love with just about every aspect of life in Grenoble. Patrick was an amazing program advisor and took us on some of the best excursions around France. If you are lucky enough to go abroad and end up in Grenoble, take advantage of every experience you have there!

Wouldn't Change a Thing
Submitted by Meghan Harrington - The College of New Jersey | February 12, 2018
This past summer, I studied abroad in Aix-en-Provence, France for six weeks. I lived in a homestay with a divorced mother and her 20 year old daughter. They spoke just a few words of English. Shortly after landing in France, I was welcomed by Alexia and her mom, Karen. They were so warm and welcoming and made me feel at home which is exactly what I needed since I was 4,000 miles away from home and everything I knew for the very first time. My first night in Aix was very overwhelming and kind of rough but I felt a million times better less than 24 hours later, meeting the CEA staff. Throughout the six weeks, I knew there was always someone to talk to in the CEA office, which was conveniently located just around the corner from school. I would completely recommend CEA to someone who is interested in studying abroad. In addition to the exceptional staff, they also offered several excursions that other programs did not have. We had an all day excursion in the medieval town of Les Baux de Provence and smaller activities in the city like wine tasting and soap making. We even had an amazing farewell dinner a few days before our program ended. Studying abroad with CEA was an amazing experience that I would recommend to everyone. I cannot imagine having gone abroad any other way!
Spring '17 in Costa Rica
Submitted by Megan Styborski - Washington State University | February 08, 2018
I spent an entire semester in San Jose, Costa Rica, and it was one of the best experiences I've ever had. I recommend studying abroad to almost anyone who asks, because it is truly a life changing experience - it even inspired me to make a major career change!
Living in a home-stay was also a great option in this program. I got to practice my language more, and I had a much more authentic experience, especially with the local lifestyle and food.
One of my favorite aspects of the experience was my courses. One of the courses I took was Tropical Marine Biology, and we had the opportunity to actually go to the coast and do field work. We got to explore mangroves, study tidal pools, and even snorkel and scuba dive out at the reefs! It was hands down one of the most amazing and immersive classroom experiences I have ever had.
Studying abroad is something every student should do. No matter your major or your budget, there is an option that will work for you! For me, it kicked off what I hope will become a lifetime full of travel, and I'm a different, better person after my time in Costa Rica.
CEA summer in London
Submitted by Hannah - University of Central Florida | February 02, 2018
I loved every second of going abroad with CEA. The flat I stayed was centrally located and really nice, and the CEA staff was incredibly supportive of us. Anytime we had any issues, we could go straight to them and they would help out. They also planned cool excursions for us to participate in, and took us on a weekend trip to Wales, a location I never would have thought to explore if not for them! I loved being in Europe and would definitely recommend this program.
