Seville IBC Semester Closure: Semester Highlights

  6

Overnight immersion experience in Northern Morocco

The semester was filled with several high points, one of which the students┬┤ overnight immersion experience in Northern Morocco.  Students engaged in conversations with Moroccan peers, discussing poignant issues affecting their lives: stereotypes that the Western World holds of Muslims, fear of terrorism (Moroccans and U.S. Americans), misconceptions of Islam, the recent U.S. presidential election, amongst others. As an educator I consider it a privilege to facilitate this life-changing experience for students as they learn, question, and grow. To get a better understanding of the student experience, I invite you to view the slide show/video of one of the student groups.

Reentry Session

With the stress of final exams, saying goodbyes to friends, the packing of bags, etc. reflection about how they have changed and what should they expect when they return to the U.S. often gets pushed aside. For this reason, all IBC students engaged in conversation about their return to the U.S. during the CIEE Reentry Workshop and discussed ways in which they can continue their personal and cultural growth after returning home.  In addition to reflection of their experience, students broke into small groups based on their academic majors and brainstormed ways in which they can incorporate their study abroad learning and growth during a job interview.
