Foods and Nutrition in Barcelona
To anyone deciding on participating in the program...they most definitely should. This program was incredible. I felt safe, provided for, and as though my education, as well as my time to experience a different culture, were all placed as first priority. Organization and professionalism were obvious and the trip was one of the best decisions I could have made for my academic career as well as personal expeditions.

I loved it as it helped me understand the culture of Spain better. Barcelona was an amazing city filled with so many things to do. This experience was very special and I will cherish my memories.
