Economics + Culture, Fall 2017, Newsletter III
Bye, Bye Barcelona! Our students are sad they must leave us and astonished to see how time flies, but also excited to go back home to their families and friends to share their amazing Spanish adventure. CIEE EC students have been very busy finishing their final projects and exams, packing their belongings and preparing for the happy holidays that are awaiting them ahead with their loved ones.
Before the starting of the finals students celebrated Thanksgiving and many enjoyed having their families over to visit. At CIEE we celebrated with some cakes and pies so the students could gain strength to challenge the forthcoming exams.
Benefiting from being in a city with so much cultural challenges some of the Economics students have taken this semester Arts and Culture classes with such a wonderful outcome. They enjoyed living Barcelona’s cultural vibe while learning so much! Some of the projects they had to work on include Research Projects under the form of Posters, as the one made by Claudia on Gaudí, or the creation of web pages as the one created by Nicholas on La Alhambra.
After a thrilling semester full of new experiences students shared their last hours in Barcelona at the CIEE farewell party, where they talked about how have they changed during the last few months, the many new skills they have accomplished and how much they are going to miss their Spanish journey!
