Study Abroad Location and Semester

Buenos Aires, Argentina in Spring 2013


Spanish Latin American Studies and English


Medfield, MA

Faculty Mentor:

Veronica Calvillo. Professor Calvillo’s investment in the content she teaches in Latin American Studies and Spanish, influenced my decision in becoming a Spanish LAS major here at Gettysburg College. Her classes that have focused on immigration/cultural studies have completely changed my perspective on the nature of Hispanic America. She was very supportive during my study abroad application process and experience. If it weren’t for the first Spanish Class that I took with Professor Calvillo, I cannot be sure that I would have had the invaluable experience that I had in Buenos Aires as a Spanish LAS major.


Why I Joined the GLGC

I joined GLGC because my study abroad experience was and still is so valuable. Applying my experiences, as well as influencing others in their study abroad decisions is important to me after having had such an influential life experience in Buenos Aires.
