Study Abroad Testimonial
Spain 2006 – “I greatly enjoyed traveling abroad to Spain; it is an opportunity that few receive, and I feel honored and greatly appreciate haven been given this opportunity. Traveling to Spain and living there enabled me to experience the Spanish culture, interact with the people there, as well as to see and understand how it differs from my own culture and to see how it is similar. Living in Spain and attending festivals, such as the Fiesta de Gracia, and viewing how the Spanish do business enabled me to realize that one can still get work done while enjoying life filled with fun in a laid-back atmosphere. This was much different from out fast-paced American society.” – Jessica Spofford
