"My time in Spain has given me a world perspective I never would have obtained otherwise. I have met people from just about every part of the world both in and outside the Suffolk campus here. My goal in coming to Spain was the astronomy field trip to the Canary Islands. It added an amazing amount of hands-on practice with real astronomical instruments to my resume and will definitely help with my grad school applications."

"I decided to study abroad the summer going into my sophomore year because I had studied abroad before and could not wait another year to be back in Europe. Cavilam was the perfect program for me because it was language intensive with some of the most passionate French professors I have ever met. It is incredible how many foreign friends I made. Cavilam is made up of students and professors from around the world, and it was an experience of a life time being immersed in such a beautiful language and culture in France."
