My experience allowed me to rethink my personal philosophies

Living in Aix en Provence for four months allowed me to grow and learn far more than I could have hoped for. Southern France has an inviting culture full of relaxation and enjoyment of each passing moment. The days were often full of sunshine allowing for endless exploration of the charming provencal town. I was so happy experimenting with new foods, visiting parks and cafes, meeting the locals and going to class. My experience was being in the present moment, being here now, and not always being so caught up with the past or future. This program was beyond amazing and let me live my best life, I highly recommend it.

Freakin' awesome experience

I had a stellar time abroad in Madrid this past semester, and a large part of that was thanks to CEA. The on-site staff team were incredible (Thanks Silvia, Alvaro, and Emilia!) and they did a great job at making the transition to Madrid as smooth as possible. Throughout the semester, the staff were readily available to answer any questions and were quick to resolve any issues that arose. Additionally, the excursions and trips made up some of my best memories, and helped to enrich my experience abroad. My parents were grateful for all the planning that the CEA team did before I left, giving them some peace of mind as I headed across the Atlantic. I highly recommend this program!

My only complaint would be regarding the CEA provided housing. My housing this past semester was adequate, but not excellent. I lived with 7 other Americans (also studying with CEA) in a four bedroom apartment with one living room and a small kitchen. The tight quarters certainly made things more challenging, and it was impossible for more than two people to cook at one time. Also, the location was conveniently located roughly 4 km north of the center of the city, but this meant that I had an hour long commute to school, located 15 km south of the city center, which was frustrating. However, CEA made up for some of these shortcomings with a weekly cleaning service and through the quick to fulfillment of any maintenance requests I made.

Custom program with CEA

Every summer my university offers an internship opportunity in Paris, France, and last year was its first time it used CEA to take care of the program's logistics (e.g., housing, health insurance). Unlike the typical study abroad student, my classmates and I did not take any of the classes that CEA offers in Paris. However, I still feel like the staff treated us like any other student. We traveled with our professor and had class with her instead. CEA was very welcoming to us and let us use one of the classrooms and provided us with everything we needed to hold class. They also booked cultural activities for my entire group, including our professor, and accommodated them to our schedule. For one of the museum visits, we were supposed to have a CEA guide accompany us but he did not show up due to personal matters. However, CEA offered to have him give us a walking tour of Paris at another time for no additional cost (and he even brought us macaroons!). My favorite cultural activity was going to Versailles, not just because it is a wonderful place, but also because of our CEA tour guide, Agathe. She was very knowledgeable the place and tried to engage us in her explanations. She was pretty funny as well.

My favorite part CEA was our housing arrangements. First of all, before departure to Paris, CEA informed my university that my classmates and I would probably be placed in different apartments throughout the city (we were nine students in total), and that there would be no TV in the apartment. However, CEA managed to get us all in two apartments in the same apartment building in one of the wealthiest areas of Paris. My apartment also had a view of the Eiffel Tower, and it did come with a TV. The apartment was nicely decorated and it was equipped with everything we needed to live comfortably, from a vacuum cleaner to a rice cooker! CEA also had extra cooking utensils and even hair straighteners that we could request if we needed them. My classmates and I were all very happy with our housing arrangements, they were excellent! They helped us to bond and we became like a family. Our apartments truly felt like home! My apartment had some problems with the bathroom but CEA sent someone over to fix it the following day after we had reported it. Overall, I feel like CEA truly cares students having very wonderful experiences abroad. And I can tell that they try their best, because I am sure it is very hard to find an apartment with the view of a famous monument and to house an entire group as close as possible.

I do wish, however, that CEA had informed us cultural activities and events in Paris electronically. They posted at the CEA center a sheet with events going on that week in the city. But because my classmates and I would have class at CEA only once a week we would sometimes forget to take a look at the sheet. I would have also liked to interact more with the CEA staff, but again I did not have as many opportunities because of how little time we spent at the CEA center. It would have been nice to have our person in Paris come in to the museum visits with us.

Exploring a beautiful city

I had a blast studying abroad in Granada! The city itself is a gem, and it was such a privilege to live there for long enough to explore the hidden neighborhoods and experience the endless array of tapas. CEA offers a program that's a great mix of interesting yet stimulating academic courses along with cultural excursions that give you a chance to meet other students. I lived in a residencia, so that was also a great way to meet local Spanish students and be immersed while not having to be totally independent. After a semester in Granada, I'm much more confident in my Spanish skills. I entered the program with a decently high level of ability, but a low level of confidence in that ability. The courses in Spanish along with multiple intercambios activities reinforced my proficiency. I will always treasure the semester I spent in Granada, not just for strengthening my Spanish, but also for the amazing people I met and the memories I made traveling around Spain and the rest of Europe.

CEA photographer and student

I spent my time wandering around this incredibly beautiful city just photographing my experiences. I felt I learnt so much this new culture and improved as a photographer. I was able to to travel more than I ever have before and push myself out of my comfort zone by trying to do something new every single day!
