Study Abroad Testimonial
Merida 2006 - “Study Abroad at the University of Saint Thomas has changed my life! My first study abroad experience was my trip to Merida, Mexico in the summer of 2006! We lived in a beautiful spacious house with a balcony overlooking the vibrant streets of Merida, our afternoons were spent dancing Salsa on the balcony and swaying in our hand-made hammocks. The ruins we visited were truly remarkable and awe-inspiring in their magnificence. One of my most memorable nights was when a group of us went walking through el centro (downtown) and discovered a whole new world of art. Everyday was an adventure and the friendships I made on my trip are everlasting.” – Cimela Kidonakis
