Once again we are finishing our spring semester. In our program this ending is ongoing. We haven’t got an official end of semester date since our students are finishing their exams little by little and returning home or continuing to explore Spain and Europe, many accompanied by their families. There are also some students who remain in Seville, finishing their exams at the end of the University of Seville’s semester calendar, and also enjoying the beginning of Seville’s not yet typically hot summer.
We had the opportunity to have dinner with our group at the end of May; it was a good occasion to review the semester and say “until soon”. That was also a special night for many of our students, staff and professors of the program since the Seville F.C., one of the city’s professional soccer teams, won their fourth European championship that same night. It was great to share that occasion with our students with the Guadalquivir River in the background.
Now we are reviewing everything that has happened this spring semester: orientation, Spanish language immersion weekend, the nerve-wracking selection process and the first days at the University of Seville, the first exams, excursions offered through the Cultural Reimbursement Program, popular spring festivities (Semana Santa and the April Fair), visits, cultural integration, etc. Our Facebook page will undoubtedly help to remember the best moments.

Now we are just waiting for the university qualifications, which we expect to arrive in our office at the end of July. Undoubtedly they will be great, as in past semesters.
With sincerest greetings from Seville.
