Nine students stayed with host families in the residential area of Manga in Cartagena, Colombia, for five weeks in June and July. Students studied the colonial history of Latin America in Spanish 303 and received guidance in speaking and understanding in Spanish 326. The program was in partnership with the Universidad Tecnológica de Bolívar which is based in Manga. A few highlights from the trip included historical landmarks like Castillo San Felipe, cultural events like cooking classes, and beautiful beaches like Playa Tranquilla.
