What a great semester!

My experience studying abroad was exceptional! For someone who had never traveled outside the US (except to Canada) and only ever with my parents, I was terrified to spend a semester far away from home and with so many unknowns. However, IFSA-Butler helped alleviate many of my concerns; the Resident Director was very engaged and living so close to her and everyone on my program made a new city feel a bit more like home. IFSA-Butler organizes several trips outside Havana, and I really appreciated having the option to travel and learn more about the culture. I had very little idea of what to expect from my semester abroad but the unknowns were such an integral part of my personal learning and growing experience.
