"The world is a book, and those who do not travel only read one page" -St.Augustine. I've explored one side of the story, now its time to explore the other. Going to Mexico taught me a lot of things, more than would fit in a text box. I've been to the ruins of the mighty and feared Aztecs, the mysterious and ingenious people of Teotihuacan. I've been to the Convergence point of the native Mexica (Aztec) religion and the Catholic Church, and seen the ingenious ways that the indigenous people hid their tightly-held beliefs inside of the churches they decorated under direction of the Spaniards. (If you want to know a bit more about the trip and a few of my thoughts, Click here for an article I was interviewed for!) But now, I want to get to know the other side of the story. This program goes to Seville in the Andalusia region of Southern Spain. In similar fashion to the Mexico trip, this trip is also a month long and the accommodations are with Spanish host families. Here is the link for more information: https://columbusstate-sa.terradotta.com/index.cfm?FuseAction=Programs.ViewProgramAngular&id=36022 How does this trip impact my degree? As an International Business major, this trip will broaden my cultural knowledge from mainly the US and Mexico to a small amount of Europe also. In addition to that, one of the classes that I plan to take while there is Spanish for Business. As a Spanish Minor, this trip will give me the last few credits I need to fulfill that aspect of my degree. On to the hard part, the money: The first Payment of $2,429 is due on March 4th, The second payment of $2,430 is due on April 4th for a total of $5,059 plus the tuition and Fees of 2,534.03 bringing the total to just under $7600. I've already recieved $700 dollars towards this trip. I've been blessed with a better job opportunity so I will be able to put more toward this program myself than the last one. With that being said, If you are willing and able to help me out, it would be greatly appreciated. If you have any other questions, please let me know.
