Summer Study Abroad in Mallorca, Spain
Course Information and Form
The Arcadia in Mallorca program was one of the most riveting and rewarding experiences of my life. Mallorca is a gorgeous, relaxed island that has everything a person could want. The program directors were extremely helpful and frequently went above and beyond to ensure our safety and happiness. I can't fully express the feelings I have towards my host family- they treated me like their own daughter from day one, which made the entire Mallorca experience more rich and authentic. My Spanish language skills increased enormously and I'll forever cherish the memories and relationships I made.
