Granada Institute of International Studies - University of Delaware, Spring 2022

Hi everyone!!! My name is Shadi Lopez! I am a current senior at SJU, and I am a Secondary Education, Spanish major. I studied abroad in Granada, Spain the spring of 2022 for a full-on Spanish immersion. Applying and searching for helpful resources was one of the best decisions I've ever made in my life!! I can confidently say that being abroad is an experience you will never forget. I will forever be grateful for the one in a lifetime opportunity I had to meet so many new people and places all around Spain. Even though I just got home not too long ago, there isn't a day that goes by without talking about my time in Spain haha. So if you would like to hear more or get some information about the process as a whole, please feel free to contact me via email at!
