Everything was presented clearly and all questions were answered during the orientation. The orientation settled the small concerns I had about studying abroad.

I never had a particular need for accessing Valencia's healthcare but a few students on my program did and they had no problem getting the attention they needed.

I felt completely safe during every excursion in Spain. Our program directors were always with us and guided us throughout the process. Transportation was great as well and we never had to worry about how we were going to get somewhere because everything was planned before time to go and we always knew all of the details.

The choices for excursions, field trips, and site visits were absolutely perfect. It gave all of us the chance to see parts of Spain that were different from where the housing facility was and compare them. Many of the site visits also tied in to information that was being taught in class, so we were able to learn by actually experiencing and/or seeing what happened in Spain through museums and monuments. I wouldn't change anything about the choices that our directors made.

Our rooms were cleaned every day and we received new linens once a week, so there were no concerns with cleanliness. The bed was comfortable and there was enough space for my roommate and I to store our clothes. I always felt safe in the dorm.

Inma Garnes, as well as the rest of the program staff did a fantastic job accommodating each and every one of our daily needs. Inma made Valencia feel like home and the program did so much to help me grow as a person and a student.

I wish I could do this all over again.

The program could not have been done better. For future participants, think about staying in Spain for the summer after if at all possible.

It is truly an amazing program, I would recommend making travel plans for spring break/semana santa as early as possible.

When you get to Spain there will be so many things that you will want to do and luckily a lot of it is covered in the program fee. It's important to make sure that you bring enough money to travel inside of Spain and to other countries as well and try to get out and do things with your group as much as you can. You'll be learning a lot and having so much fun that the time will pass by before you realize it.

UGA en España provided me with the most culturally enriching, fun four months of my life. The UGA program staff, as well as the city of Valencia (by far the best city in Spain), helped me grow as a person. I met some of the most interesting and incredible people this semester and it will have forever changed my life for the better.

I fell in love with Valencia and it became my home. My only regret is not staying longer.

This was three of the best months of my life and I'm happy I chose to study abroad in Valencia through The UGA en España program. I met some amazing people not only in the group from UGA, but in Spain as well. My life will be changed forever!
