Students at SIU’s Madrid campus took part in the student council elections this week. The SIU student council serves as a voice for the student body and works closely with the university administration. Our candidates worked hard and campaigned in order to gain the support from their peers.
Congratulations to our new student body President, Gabriela Alebrtini. Gabriela is a fourth year International Business major. Her main message throughout her campaign was, “I really want to make the best of our budget and plan as many trips and activities as possible. Let me make my last year at Schiller your best one!” We are looking forward to a great year here at Schiller Madrid with Gabriela at the helm!
This week the students of Madrid’s Spanish class took a trip to the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, the home stadium of Real Madrid, renowned to most Madrid locals as the best team in Spain. The students had an amazing time exploring the stadium and museum of one of the world’s most famous and prestigious football venues.
The SIU Madrid campus takes pride in offering international students the opportunity to learn Spanish – the second most spoken language in the world. Studying in Madrid is also a great opportunity for our students looking for an international education to be immersed in one of the most important cultural capitals in the world.
Today the Tourism students at Schiller Madrid had the opportunity to visit the Hotel Puerta América, a luxurious designer hotel that invites visitors to dream. This unique project has brought together 19 of the top architect studios and designers in the world from 13 different countries.
Each floor proposes a different concept of room. They all use different materials, colors and shapes to create spaces that bring together the best of design and avant-garde architecture, where the work has been marked by the creativity and freedom in the development of each space.
Our Front Desk Management students were able to tour this designer hotel and learn from this eclectic space that keeps its focus on comfort. Rooms with all kinds of details to encourage guests to discover them, interacting with them through the senses, seeing, touching and even smelling them, made this a unique experience of unforgettable sensations for our Tourism class.
It’s that time of year at Schiller’s Madrid campus…. Our Annual Vineyard Excursion!
Students spent the day in Toledo, where they enjoyed the opportunity to become wine-makers, connect with new friends and discover more of the Spanish culture.
Thank you to everyone who was a part of such a great day!
This week we started our September classes and welcomed our new students to Schiller’s Madrid campus. We had a great time where our students could get to know each other as well as start enrolling for the new activities happening this semester. And of course, what better way to start than to share a good paella all of us, students and staff. Without a doubt it has been a great start for the academic year here at SIU Madrid.
