Business + Culture, Spring 2018, Newsletter I
Excitement is in the air as the program starts and students arrive to Orientation. Ahead of them there are 3 months of great experiences, fabulous adventures and new discoveries… they can’t wait to get started!
The first days students discover the city of Barcelona, they meet their flat mates and host families, they get used to taking the metro and also learn about their new host University. To make this process smooth CIEE organizes several leisure activities such as a tour around the Gothic quarter or hiking to Barcelona’s Mount Tibidabo.
Students have also started to discover the rich and variety of Catalonia’s culture and heritage by visiting with CIEE the ancient roman ruins of Tarragona, a World Heritage Site, the visiting the Dalí Museum in Figueres (Girona), or the Medieval Monastery of Montserrat.
Classes have already started at ESCI and UVic and bit by bit the excitement of the first days leads to daily life and integration into the city’s culture. The adventure though, has just begun, we will keep you all soon posted!
