“We understand that global competence is an increasingly valued credential in the era of borderless careers and global markets. Indeed, the pursuit of global competence is a lifelong journey that begins with the experience of study abroad.” - Brian J. Boubek, Chairman & CEO

Dear Students & Parents, In the past 15 years, CEA Global Education has helped more than 24,000 students realize their goal of acquiring an international education through the opportunity and advantages of study abroad. We are proud to continue in our commitment to offering you a variety of innovative academic options as well as the highest level of personalized support and guidance. We understand that global competence – the consequence of cultural awareness and intercultural skills – is an increasingly valued credential in the era of borderless careers and global markets. Indeed, the pursuit of global competence is a lifelong journey that begins with the experience of study abroad. At CEA Global Education, we’ve helped thousands of students take that important first step toward acquiring global competence through hands-on, interactive cultural experiences. To that end, we continue to expand our Global Education Network, which offers more than 100 academic options in 21 cities around the world. Whether you wish to take courses in English or a foreign language, courses that count toward your major or general education requirements, or electives that help you explore new interests, our programs are intentionally designed with students’ diverse academic needs in mind. CEA’s Global Campuses offer students the opportunity to build on their class studies through hands-on, intercultural activities. By connecting course objectives to real situations, communities and people, students come away with a deeper understanding and the ability to better articulate newfound skills and cultural awareness. Of course, we couldn’t help students make those invaluable connections without the expertise of our international resident faculty and staff. Well-published and highly experienced in the field of study abroad, our resident faculty and staff are who make students’ experience abroad enjoyable, rewarding, eye-opening, safe and life-changing. As always, our team of admissions counselors, financial coordinators and site specialists remain dedicated to providing one-on-one assistance to students seeking global competence through a meaningful study abroad experience. We are proud to be a leader in helping students like you acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to compete on an increasingly globalized professional stage. I invite you to consider the many ways in which CEA Global Education can help you achieve your goals. Sincerely,

Brian J. Boubek Chairman & CEO

Every April, Buenos Aires hosts the International Book Fair, one of the top five book expos in the world and open to both the literary community and the general public. The expo is organized by the Fundación El Libro, a nonprofit established by the Argentine Society of Writers (SADE). One of the most important cultural and editorial events in Ibero-America, the fair was first held in March 1975 and was for years known as the “Buenos Aires International Expo, from the Author to the Reader.” Held initially in the Buenos Aires Expo Center, a utilitarian building in the Recoleta borough, the fair has attracted more than a million visitors a year. Recently, the fair was hosted by the Argentine Rural Society at its Palermo borough expo grounds. Attracting 116 stands from seven countries in its first expo, the fair has drawn about 1,500 stands from 50 countries in recent years.

University of Viña del Mar • Founded in 1988, the University of Viña del Mar attracts students from all over Latin America as well as Europe and Asia • Established one of Chile’s first environmental engineering programs as well as being on the forefront of offering internationalization at home • Enrolls approximately 6,000 students per year • Recognized by the Chilean Ministry of Education as a degreegranting institution of higher learning

A Cultural Perspective: The Chilean Riviera If you love sun, sand, and surf, you will love Viña del Mar. This beautiful city is known for its relaxing atmosphere and beautiful beaches. The warm Mediterranean-style climate has earned the city the nickname the Chilean Riviera. It also is referred to as the Orange County of Chile because of all the high-rise condos, American style homes, and surfing enthusiasts located along a seaside highway not unlike the Pacific Coast Highway. There are so many amazing beaches in Viña del Mar, it will be hard to decide which to visit. The large selection of restaurants and shops along the sidewalk make Playa Reñaca one of the more popular beaches. If you enjoy swimming, the calm waters of Playa Cochoa and Playa Zapallar make these beaches ideal. Travel farther away from the center of the city and enjoy unique and less crowded beaches like La Serena, which is famous for its black sand. Playa Renaca - Photo Courtesy of Jordi Cubero

If you are in Viña del Mar during the third week of February, you won’t want to miss the International Song Festival, the most popular music festival in Latin America. This fun and exciting event began 51 years ago as a platform for emerging stars to showcase their talent. The format of the event has shifted from a traditional musical festival to more of an awards show. There is a pop song and folk song competition, where the audience, known as “The Monster,” decides through their reaction of cheering Franz Ferdinand, Performing at the 2006 International Song Festival or booing if the performer wins an award or is taken off stage. International music stars from around the world entertain the audience between the competitive performances. Some stars who have performed in the past include Journey, Nelly Furtado and Earth, Wind & Fire.

Students in the Shanghai: Imperialism, Revolution and Modernity course at the Global Campus in Shanghai can study Shanghai as a microcosm of China. The city exemplifies the social consequences of change, embodied most recently by the emergence of a new entrepreneurial elite, the small but growing middle class, and the large “floating population” of rural migrants illegally residing in the city. As part of the course, you’ll visit significant locations around the city, including the Bund and the foreign concessions, the site of the founding of the Chinese Communist Party and the Pudong economic zone. The exploration, on-site discussion and analysis led by specialists in the history of Shanghai, provide context for your understanding of evolving urban spaces.

A Cultural Perspective: A City in Celebration Czech is not the only language you’ll hear in Prague these days. From its comparative isolation during the period of Communist rule, Prague has resumed its role as a cosmopolitan center of arts and culture. Whether it’s Indian film, Japanese fashion, or African food, you’ll find an international festival, conference, or event for it each year in Prague. Each fall sees an international design and fashion show roll into town, bringing some of the world’s top designers and their newest creations with it. A Bollywood film festival showcases the year’s best from India and Hollywood’s biggest stars come to the Czech Republic each summer for the international film festival in the historic spa town of Karlovy Vary. The Bohemia JazzFest offers jazz concerts in Prague’s historic squares for free in the fall, and an annual summer writers’ festival attracts names like Margaret Atwood, Paul Auster and Iain Banks. For the rest of us, the Fringe Festival each summer offers, well, something a little bit different. Whether you favor rap, rock, reggae, or Rachmaninoff, you’ll find it being played under the open skies somewhere in the Czech Republic in summer. And each spring the Khamora festival of world Roma culture takes place, highlighting the music, dance, language, and culture of the peoples the world used to call “gypsies.”

A Cultural Perspective: Provence’s Tradition of Wine Making Wine has been produced in the Provence region ever since the Greeks settled there in 600 BC! Throughout Provence’s history, many cultures have flocked to the region including Romans, Gauls, Catalans, and Savoyards, bringing with them diverse groups of grapes. Over the years, this has led to the production of a variety of unique wines. Sixty-five percent of the wine made in appellation Coteaux d’Aix en Provence is red, 30 percent is rosé, and 5 percent is white. With dozens of wineries across the country to visit and tour, you are sure to learn the role wine plays in French culture.

I made a lot of friends here, and I’m even considering moving here.

Niki DeRosia Western State College Deciding to study abroad in Galway was by far the best decison I have ever made. I made unforgettable friends, saw breathtaking sights, learned both from my campus classes and traveling experiences, as well as gained a better sense of who I am. If you are considering going abroad, stop thinking about it and go for it. It is worth all the effort.

Vicki Brooks Texas A&M University If you’re on the fence about studying abroad: do it!! It will be one of the most amazing and enriching experiences in your life. There’s no way to experience a culture the way you experience it while studying abroad, which makes it a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Robin Trachtenberg California Polytechnic State University San Luis Obispo We had weekly events, including going to see Irish music and dancing, dog racing, and more.

Florence, Italy

A Closer Look: Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore The dome of the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, just two blocks from the CEA Global Campus, became an icon and symbol of the city upon its completion in 1461. From the Renaissance era to today, Florentines proudly say that they were born “in the shadow” of their beloved “cupola.” Florentine Filippo Brunelleschi, the dome’s architect, designed and personally oversaw its construction. Recognized immediately as an architectural and engineering feat, the dome was the largest built since antiquity, and is today one of the largest cathedral domes in the world. Scaffolding for the construction of such a massive structure proved to be a major challenge, but Brunelleschi turned this potential difficulty into an opportunity to make himself a name in history forever. He not only built the dome but also developed a way to construct it without any interior scaffolding. Furthermore, the dome’s design embodied a tenet central to Renaissance thought: the integration of art and science. The dome is thus a fitting symbol of Florentine genius.

Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore

As a CEA student in Florence, you will be able to climb the 463 steps to the top of Brunelleschi’s masterpiece, weaving between the two “shells” of the dome. From the top, you can enjoy one of the most remarkable views of the city below – Florence in the shadow of this Renaissance marvel.

Cultural Activities & Excursions CEA’s international staff has designed excursions and opportunities that invite you to connect directly and meaningfully with the cultures of Florence and Italy. While activities vary by session and according to availability, here are a few recent examples:

Rome, Italy

Students on San Gimignano Excursion

A Cultural Perspective: Rome’s Colosseum The Colosseum in Rome is one of the most recognizable monuments in the world, and the most impressive to modern visitors of the Eternal City. Those features that still invoke awe today – the structure’s incredible size and clever design – were actually part of its function during antiquity. The Colosseum was the entertainment center for the Ancient Roman public, where emperors could showcase in their capital city the political and economic power they held throughout the entire Roman Empire. Before roaring crowds, gladiators battled one another, and prisoners were pitted against ferocious wild animals from foreign lands. The Colosseum is a 15 minute Metro ride from the Rome Global Campus. As a CEA Rome student, you will have the opportunity to visit this magnificent ancient structure and to imagine the spectacles it hosted centuries ago. A tour will also encompass a visit to the spaces underground and “behind the scenes,” where gladiators would prepare, prisoners were kept, and animals were caged before they made their grand entrance on the arena above. CEA’s expert staff will help make the ancient spectacles come to life around you – an experience you will never forget!

“Rome is an amazing place to broaden your horizons on culture, tradition, language, and history. One should definitely consider coming to Rome because you can take away, not only a study abroad experience, but an experience of a lifetime!!!” - Giovanni Morales, California University of Pennsylvania, 2011 Spring Semester

Kristen Thompson Miami University My experiences abroad sparked my curiosity about the world and allowed me to learn about myself. Through meeting other international students, I learned about their cultures and made friendships that have carried on to this day. CEA helped me discover my love for traveling and encouraged me to look for a job abroad. My biggest regret is not staying longer than six months in Port Elizabeth.

Frances Ramirez Kean University The country is absolutely gorgeous. There are so many places that are beautiful and affordable. Traveling, volunteering with the youth of the townships, becoming friends with the locals, the sight of majestic mountains and coastlines, visiting game reserves and going to cricket and rugby games are all part of an incredible experience you will never forget.

Laura Weiss University of Nebraska - Lincoln I was constantly surrounded by students from all of the world (France, Sweden, Zimbabwe, South Africa, etc.) and was able to make some amazing friends. You’ll meet people to travel with, learn with, or even just to go to the beach with. South Africa is a beautiful country with so much diversity and life, it’s incredible. I would recommend this program to anyone with an open mind and an urge to travel.

Seville, Spain

Connecting Culture with the Classroom Flamenco is perhaps the most emblematic symbol of Spanish culture and art. While its exact origins cannot be attributed to any one particular musical legacy, it evolved through a fusion of Arabic and Jewish chants and melodies from both the Near and Far East, brought to southern Spain by gypsies in the 15th century. It is also considered to be a dynastic art form, passed down and developed from generation to generation within gypsy families throughout Spain. The Triana neighborhood of Seville is often considered the birthplace of the flamenco that we know today and is still home to dozens of small bars, where live flamenco can still be seen and heard. This art form is a great cultural treasure that is an important component of your experience in Spain!

Cultural Activities & Excursions CEA’s international staff has designed excursions and opportunities that invite you to connect directly and meaningfully with the cultures of Seville and Spain. While activities vary by session and according to availability, here are a few recent examples:

Cultural Activities • Flamenco Show • Traditional Bullfight Lagos, Portugal

• Visit to Isla Mágica Park

Excursions • Lagos, Portugal • Ronda • Granada • Gibraltar • Córdoba • Jerez & Conil

If CEA incurs an expense on my behalf that is not covered by insurance, I agree to make immediate repayment upon my return.

I also authorize release to CEA, through my signature below, protected health and mental health records, such release expiring on completion of the Program.

CEA reserves the right to obtain records pursuant to this release, within the applicable period, in the event of ambiguity of information, disputes or unanticipated or unusual conduct exhibited during the Program. 8. I will comply with all CEA’s Policies, including its rules, standards, instructions and practices for program participation behavior, including housing.

I understand that my participation may be terminated if I am expelled from school, deemed academically ineligible by the school, or otherwise disciplined by school or civil authorities, or if CEA, in its sole discretion, determines that my conduct is incompatible with the safety or welfare of other participants and/or myself, or, in any way undermines the Program. I agree to indemnify CEA if I do anything that causes CEA to sustain financial loss or liability. 9. I understand that CEA requires all participants to enroll in the CEA insurance plan.

I acknowledge that it is my responsibility to understand the limitations of this coverage and agree that CEA is not responsible for any uninsured losses. 10. I understand that CEA reserves the absolute right to reject my application or dismiss me from a Program if, after acceptance, CEA learns of a condition (personal, medical, academic and/or psychological) which in the reasonable opinion of CEA may endanger me or others, and/or puts me at risk in a foreign country, and/or shows a history of an inability to adapt to challenging situations, and/or creates or requires burdens and resources not required or necessary to maintain other students. 11. I understand that CEA occasionally uses statements made by its students and/or their photographs in marketing materials on the web and in print. I consent to such use of my statements or photographs of me. I agree that CEA may add my name and e-mail address to an e-mail distribution list which will be shared by other participants on my Program, unless I notify CEA in writing otherwise. 12.

If I choose to leave the Program as a result of these changes, I understand there will be no refund of program fees or of any expenses already paid. 14. I understand that obtaining a passport and any other required travel documents is my sole responsibility. Whether I am a U.S. citizen or not, I shall hold CEA harmless in the event I cannot or choose not to obtain the necessary documents for participation in the Program.
