CEA CAPA Directory

Alexa Porter, Alumni Ambassador
What was your favorite class while abroad, and why?
My favorite class was my Spanish language intensive course. It gave me in-depth insight into vocabulary and grammar, and introduced several cultural concepts. I feel like I learned extremely applicable content that allowed to participate in day-to-day life around the city.
How did you engage with the local community while abroad?
One story that I always tell people is about the time that our entire CEA CAPA group went with some of the local Spanish students to play soccer. I had so much fun spending quality time with people that I only recently met, and we all quickly became close friends. Seeing people outside of the classroom and finding activities that were enjoyable for all of us was so crucial to my overall study abroad experience.
