SIU Madrid Student Highlight

Why SIU Madrid?

I like to do a lot of research before making any kind of decision and that is exactly what I did before enrolling at Schiller Madrid. I found more positive reviews than I could count. I also had someone personally recommend it as the place to go and it was an opportunity I could not pass by.

Why have you chosen to live in Madrid?

Simply because of how friendly the citizens are, they are always happy to help you get where you need to be and lend a helping hand. I also thought this would be a great experience for me to be submerged in a completely different culture as well as take part of traditions very different than my own.

What has been your most interesting experience abroad?

My most interesting experience would be meeting international people. This gives you a whole new kind of educational experience as you learn about their country, culture, and many traditions. It also helps you keep an open mind towards experiencing things you do not know such as a special dish from that country.

How would you want to be remembered?

When I graduate and years have passed, I hope that when my friends think back to their college days they have a thought for me. Not only as someone they knew in college but as a funny, kind person who was always there to give assistance to anyone who needed it.
