Charlie in SpainCharlie - Jaen, Spain

Charlie studied abroad in Jaén, Spain for the 2017-2018 academic year. He is studying Psychology and plans on graduating in the Spring of 2019.  One of his favorite experiences in Spain was when he met his host family, they were the sweetest and nicest people around.  They treated him like their own child and helped him immensely with his Spanish. After graduating, he hopes to attend graduate school for Industrial-Organizational Psychology or Forensic Psychology.  While in Spain, he took advantage of Europe and took two backpacking trips—one during the winter and one during the summer, totaling 66 days on the road.  These trips were some of the best decisions of his life.

Charlie is available: 
Wednesday, 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Shawntay in UKShawntay - Oxford, United Kingdom

Shawntay spent just as much time taking in the sites as she did eating all the different cuisines available while abroad.

She is currently an undergrad, studying English Literature and hopes to enter the world of publishing while working on her Master's after graduation.

Shawntay is available:
Monday, 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Sidney in ItalySidney - Florence, Italy

Sid spent a year abroad in the art-acclaimed city of Florence, Italy. While there, his experience was nothing short of a fantasy come to life and then some. Between the many countries traveled and the cultures experienced, he found that Italy had become home. Studying Political Science along-side many Californian peers at Cal State University of Firenze, the experiences shared still continue on today state-side. One thing you might not recognize about Sid is that he is a farm boy from the small town of Ceres, California. After graduation, he hopes to do his Master’s program in Europe or teach English in Asia.

Sidney is available:
Monday, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Thursday, 10:00 AM - 12:00PM
