This summer we are going to Costa Rica. The Department of World Languages, the Center for International Education and Sol Education Abroad are launching a summer program at Universidad La Latina in Heredia, Costa Rica. Total immersion with a Costa Rican family and visits to National Forest, volcanoes, beaches and coffee plantations are some of the highlights of the program. We will tell you all about it when we come back.
This summer we will also have a small group going to Oviedo, Spain, as we have for the last 12 years. Also, several students are participating in the Oviedo semester program this year. 15 credits, room tuition and board for about the same price as Salem State during the spring and even less during the fall!
Two of our Spanish majors, Alyssa Barras and Daniel Godden, are about to wrap up their amazing year as Cultural and Conversation assistants in Spain, paid by the Ministry of Education. Valerie del Villar has been awarded this grant for the academic year 2012-2013. Congratulations!
