Stephanie Crispell
Saint Louis University Madrid, Fall 2018

Hello Hawks! My name is Stephanie and I am thrilled that you are considering studying abroad! I am an Elementary and Special Education Major who studied abroad in Madrid, Spain through Saint Louis University Madrid in the Fall 2018. My study abroad experience was one of the best decisions I made coming to SJU and I am so grateful for the friends, experiences, and adventures it brought me. From the tapas, to the flamenco dancing, and the bustling streets filled with Spanish music, Spain brought the culture and adventure I was looking for when deciding where to studying abroad. I lived with the most wonderful host family, practiced my Spanish, and feel in love with traveling all of Europe! Living with students from different Universities and meeting students from all over the world, brought me life-long friendships and adventures that will never be forgotten. I could go on and on about how much I loved studying abroad... but that's what my email is for, so feel free to email me if you have any questions about Madrid, Spain or just studying abroad in general (! I would love to hear from you and help support you in the process! Habla pronto!

Sarah Joseph
IES Abroad Paris - Business and International Affairs, Spring 2019

Bonjour tout le monde! My name is Sarah Joseph and I am a International Business and French major. Last spring I studied abroad in Paris with IES Paris Business & International Affairs program. I love this place, from taking classes that encouraged me to learn more about France and the world overall, hanging out with my friends on the Seine, eating dinner with my host family, and in randomly seeing Owen Wilson on the streets of Paris are just some of the priceless memories I have from my time in France. In living with my host mom this help me to open my eyes to what life in France is like, get out of my comfort zone in speaking a new language, and to establish new friendships. Going abroad keep an open mind and go everywhere you can because the semester goes by so fast. I had an amazing experience abroad and I hope to share with all of you more about my life in Paris, so if you have an interest in this program or with studying abroad in general feel free to reach out. My email is Look forward to helping you all with this process!
