14 Oct University Introduction Text
Immerse yourself in storied Seville, the regional capital city of Andalusia founded more than 1,000 years ago. Seville is the beating heart of southern Spain and boasts a proud heritage of bullfighting, tapas, and flamenco. Christopher Columbus’s quest for the New World began alongside the banks and quiet waters of Seville’s Guadalquivir River, which flows through the city.
In Seville, you will experience the best of both worlds as the city’s rich history is woven seamlessly into a vibrant, modern culture. With a friendly population of just under one million people, Seville offers all the activities of a city, but with the feeling of a smaller town. Seville is safe and easy to navigate via public transportation, on foot, or even with the bike-share program. It is not uncommon to see families and friends walking the streets long into the night — aided, no doubt, by the unique Spanish meal schedule!
Treasure the delight of new experiences amidst the old stone streets. Allow your studies to come to life in front of you as you take your education outside the classroom, and experience local culture and costumes firsthand while you live with a Spanish family. Learn the language, try new foods, visit the monuments, make friends, and expand your worldview… ¡ven a Sevilla!
