Junior, Major in Business Marketing, Emphasis in Sales
  • UD Exchange with Universidad de Deusto (Spring 2016)
"Studying abroad was five months of paradise, relaxing on the beach and living the Spanish lifestyle.  Other than 2 Americans, I hung out and made lifelong friends with people from: Italy, Germany, Sweden, Netherlands, Uruguay, Turkey, Czech, and many other places. Traveling was easy and cheap, and being able to visit famous cities and landmarks was just one bonus of studying in Europe. In a foreign country, the language and cultural barrier is real, but it ends up enhancing your learning. I was able to take twelve credits and have Fridays off, which allowed me to have a very useful extra day to travel wherever I chose. Living in a flat in the heart of a rather small city, I was a ten minute walk from school,  a seven minute walk to famous restaurants and nightlife, and a five minute walk from the beach. No other experience can be matched in college."

Fall 2017 Participant
I loved my exchange with Universidad de Deusto and living in San Sebastian! I highly suggest anyone take part in this program.

Ellen A Mack, Fall 2014 Participant
It is an amazing place to live and learn and explore. The people I met abroad as well as the value of the new cultures I experienced made this the trip of a lifetime and I am extremely lucky to have been a part of it. It was challenging to adapt and learn the language, but once I did I felt as though I could conquer anything.

Natalie Kathleen O'Brien, Spring 2017 Participant
100% the best decision I ever made. San Sebastián is an untouched city that truly holds an authentic feel. If you want to be able to walk everywhere (including school), come here. Its a beautiful surfing town with beaches and buildings that are gorgeous. I was able to take 12 credits and have Fridays off. Traveling was easy as well, and also very affordable. Another reason I loved this exchange program was because it is not an all American one, so I made life long friends from all over. Sweden, Germany, France, Czech Republic, The Netherlands, The UK, and more. Despite Basque being spoken here as well, I heard Spanish all day long and this helped me improve my skills. It's my new favorite place in the world, and I couldn't have chosen a better place to have my exchange.
