End of Semester Greetings from the Seville IBC Program!
Students got out of the city to explore one of the region´s off-the-beaten path areas: the Sierra de Huelva and Picos de Aroche. IBC and other Seville CIEE students went on a guided 8-mile hike exploring the region´s flora and fauna.
Overnight Immersion Experience in Northern Morocco
Students engaged in conversations with Moroccan peers and discussed poignant issues affecting both the U.S. and Moroccan students…stereotypes that (some) individuals or groups hold of Muslims, thoughts on the U.S. government leadership, dating norms in their respective countries, parental involvement in decision making, etc. This cultural immersion experience continues to be one of the top-rated semester experiences of students.
A Picture Speaks a Thousand Words
A couple of students from the Intercultural Communication and Leadership class participated in a photography workshop for their end of semester Digital Story project. Professional photographer Antonio Pérez worked with students to help them discover how to use non-traditional photos in their projects to show their story rather than rely solely on the narrative.
