After studying abroad I feel more open to other cultures, new experiences, and have a greater desire to learn more about the world. I have come home with a more open perspective of my life, the world, and of other people.

Activities for San Sebastián, Spain

Extracurricular activities include guest speakers, volunteer projects, social activities, informal get-togethers, and conversation partners. You can hike, bike, surf, and kayak within the city itself and in the nearby area. Group excursions to experience traditional Basque sports, music, and cuisine are often planned and announced throughout the semester. Students explore medieval towns, help with Surfrider beach clean-up projects, volunteer and work in local schools, and take elective classes with local university students.
