avilaFor the third year in a row, a group of ISU students travelled to Avila, Spain, as part of summer study abroad program. The students stayed with host families while taking courses from Dr. Davis as well as faculty from the University of Salamanca’s Avila campus. They also travelled to Madrid, Segovia, Salamanca, and Seville as part of the experience. The program, established by Dr. Mir, allows students to complete a minor in Spanish while abroad, though it is open to any interested students. Those considering applying for the 2015 program should contact the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, and of course talk to the 2014 participants.
