What was your favorite class while abroad, and why?
My favorite class I took while abroad was called Modern Art and Architecture in Spanish Cities. In this class I learned more about Spanish artists and some architecture of buildings in my own neighborhood. As part of the class we even got to visit some of the local museums in the city. This class also inspired me to visit other parts of Spain to see some of the art we talked about in class, in-person!

How did you engage with the local community while abroad?
At my apartment building, I met some of my neighbors and the doorman of my building who I talked to almost everyday. My neighborhood was also full of cafes, shops, and restaurants where many local community members work and visit, so I was able to speak with people there too. Through one of my, classes we got to attend multiple local sporting events and even got to go play paddle with my professor!
