Economics + Culture, Fall 2016, Newsletter II


We are already past mid-semester! Economics and Culture students have been very busy and stressed with classes, midterms, cultural activities, meeting locals or volunteering. Find more details below.

This semester students have travelled more than ever to different European cities every weekend.

Jerry from Duke University and Stephan from Colby College share their apartment with Alex, their Spanish flat-mate. Native roommates provide a great opportunity for our students to get more immersed in the culture, practice their Spanish and of course, live with a local.

Alex has gotten along so well with Jerry and Stephan that they have become really good friends and have travelled to the Basque Country to visit Alex´s family and friends. They even went to the World Surf League Event in Hossegor where they surfed for the first time in their lives.


Making American Bullfighters

For this semester´s excursion, EC students had the best experience ever visiting the cattle farm La Dehesa, where they learned more about how to run a cattle farm of bullfighting bulls. They also got to learn the art of “toreo” as you can see in this short video.
