Seville IBC Program Closure
The Spring18 semester ended a few weeks ago on May 25th…below are a few of the highlights as we headed into semester´s end
Cultural Immersion to Morocco
During the overnight to Northern Morocco students were not just visitors to the country but rather participated in the daily lives of locals via informal interactions with peers, by living with a Moroccan family and by partaking in aspects of the local culture. As result of the immersion experience, students left with heightened awareness of their U.S. American privilege and status, as well as more accurate information of Islam, the political and educational structures in Morocco, day-to-day living, etc.
Spanish Culture Up Close
Several students participated in volunteer teaching this semester, either with CIEE or in collaboration with the University Pablo de Olavide; students volunteered 1-2 hours per week at a local elementary or high school.
Students got away from final exam studies for an IBC farewell merienda---students shared stories from their semester and reflected on how they will incorporate their semester growth upon their return home.
