I stayed with a host mom and I am so happy I did. I dove deep into the culture, and made it a part of my everyday life. There were some times when I would get frustrated with the language barrier, but overall it was totally worth it. I grew in my Spanish, and grew as a person as well.
Upon acceptance into one of Central College Abroad’s eight study abroad programs, every student is provided a program specific “student survival guide”. This guide provides practical planning information, useful tips and general guidelines which help students understand their role as study abroad participants. Upon enrollment into a program, Central College Abroad also mails the students’ study abroad advisers a copy of the program specific “student survival guide” to assist them as they prepare their students for successful study abroad experiences.
Each guide includes a program specific section, as well as a general section; therefore, some information found in the guide will be specific to Bangor only.
