CEA San José Excursions San José, Costa Rica

One of the benefits of studying abroad is the ability to venture out and explore the surrounding area. During your orientation in San José, we will give you a calender of CEA Excursions. Typically, trimester students participate in four excursions per trimester: two overnight and two day trips. Summer students have one excursion every two weeks. Excursions are not available to Short Term session students. To give you an idea of the possibilities, below are some postcards from the tours and trips we have offered to our students in the past. For more details, visit www.GoWithCEA.com/sanjose/excursions.

Río Pacuare Poás Volcano We hiked up to the rim of Poás Volcano to see the specta cular view of the bubbling crater below. The National Park surrounding Poás Volcano offers an extraordinary scenic beauty, which I experienc ed first hand on the many tra ils. We visited La Paz waterf alls, a hummingbird garden and the butterfly farm too. This is a magical place!

The Río Pacuare is a wild river with Class IV rapids! Our guide told us to keep an eye out for parrots, toucans, iguanas, oropendola nests and sloths in the treetops . We got to see a ton of exotic wildlife in the rainforest that crowds the banks of the river. Half way, we pulled over on a gravel bar to catch our breath before the next big drop and I took some truly amazing pictures!

Isla Tortuga

Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve I can’t expr ess what it was like to fly on the zip line throu gh the lush trop ics of Mont ever de Cloud Fore st Rese rve. The wate rfalls we pass ed casc aded with sere ne beau ty, distu rbed only by the calling of exot ic birds . We also visite d the butt erfly garde n, home of over 490 spec ies of the daint y little being s.

Manuel Antonio National Park & Quepos Yesterday, I was captivated by the tropical flowers and indigenous creatures I encountered at the park. After a nice hike, we took time to enjoy the warm waters and what the locals say is one of Costa Rica’s best beaches. I loved seeing the different monkeys, sloths and huge iguanas. The biodiversity here is amazing.

w w w. G o W i t h C E A . c o m 800.266.4441

I really enjoyed the live music on the boat trip to and from Isla Tortuga and the amazing scenery as we pas sed the Nicoya coastline. We were greeted at the island by coconut palms and sunshine. Our guide told us to search for treasures wh ile snorkeling among the fis h in the crystal clear waters, since pirates were once regula r visitors to the island du ring the 17th Century.

Hot Springs & Arenal Volcano

After horseback riding and hiking down to La Fortuna waterfall, I found the relaxing haven of the hotsprings and let the soothing water rush over me. There, through the trees I saw the majestic volcano spewing out fiery redhot rocks and lava high into the evening sky. I was awed by the impressive display of Mother Nature’s power.

For more details, visit www.GoWithCEA.com/guadalajara/excursions.

Puerto Vallarta & Punta Mita

Zacatecas This picturesque and unspoiled mining town's palaces of pale pink stonework, baroquestyle facades, towers and paved streets stunned me. We rode the overhead cable car, which takes you to the highest point in the city, the Bufa, for the most amazing view of the area.

Gold-sand beaches and cobble t par y onl e wer stone streets of the charm that captivated me in Puerto Vallarta. While the town is simply lovely, the t best part of the trip was tha the s nes wit to e abl e we wer migration of the humpback whales from flat boats that took us out into the ocean. ying They were jumping and pla ch tou ost alm ld cou I se clo so them!

Lake Chapala

Michoacán I was told that Michoacán, known as being nestled between tree-covered mountains and having beautiful beaches, is just off the beaten path enough that it is as close to the real Mexico as there possibly is. I found the culture there was rich and I made sure to purchase some of their excellent handicrafts.

My roommate went boating on Lake Chapala, but I opted to go horseback riding on the sandy shores instead. We made sure to meet up in the afternoon for a dip in the area's delicious natural hot springs. It was a fun and relaxing day, but it all felt surreal, like I was a movie star or something… not that I'm complaining.

Guanajuato

Tlaquepaque & Tonalá I found lovely pottery in Tlaquepaque to take home. As we walked down the street in Tonalá, I saw women weaving rugs, sewing dolls and ceramic merchants who will paint personalized messages on their work for you. All the merchants were eager to haggle over the price of their wares, which made shopping extremely exciting!

w w w. G o W i t h C E A . c o m 800.266.4441

Underground streets and an alley so narrow that lovers can stand on balconies on opposite sides and kiss! I had to see Guanajuato for myself. I must say I was not disappointed in this charming city with brass bands in the plazas, the Juarez Theater and a most intriguing history.

CEA Alicante Excursions

Algar Fountains & Guadalest It was great to escape the heat of Alicante and take a dip in the cool mountain spring waters of the Algar Fountains. After our cool down, we traveled through some amazing scenery to the ancient village of Guadalest, settled by the Moors. The village is unique, as it is an old urban center located at the top of an outcrop, accessed only by a tunnel hollowed in the rock.

For more details, visit www.GoWithCEA.com/alicante/excursions.

Costa Blanca

There are many beautiful towns and villages along the coast and inland of the Costa Blanca, all offering something unique. We visited four exquisite locations. We relaxed on Javea's most popular beach, the Playa del Arenal, visited Denia's castle and walked up its coastline taking note of the beautiful coves. We also saw the best view of the Costa Blanca from the Peñón de Ifach in Calpe and enjoyed the view of the cobalt dome of the church of the Virgen del Consuelo in Altea.

Tabarca Barcelona We had a wonderful time in Barcelona. The architecture is so interesting! Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia was my favorite. We spent time ambling down “Las Ramblas” ,a tree lined promenade, and visited the Gothic district, where we had some Catalonian tapas. I enjoyed “Pa amb tomaca” the best!

Tabarca Island is just a short boat trip from Alicante. Declared a Natural Marine Reserve, the surrounding waters are teeming with spectacular marine life. I was able to snorkel in the pristine waters of this marine sanctuary. This small 2km long island is outlined by beautiful beaches much quieter and tranquil than on the mainland. The village of Tabarca and the surrounding seas made for an excellent day trip.

Granada

Valencia Valencia is a great modern city and one of Spain’s largest. We spent some time relaxing on the sandy beaches and later explored the intricate architecture of the city’s old district, including the City of Arts and Sciences. The festival of Las Fallas in March is another key attraction. The residents build fantastic “ninot” floats from paper mache, wood and wax. ¡Qué interesante!

w w w. G o W i t h C E A . c o m 800.266.4441

This weekend I discovered the Moorish influence in Granada. It is home to the d Alhambra, which is considere by some to be one of the 10 wonders of the world. The Albaicín, the old Arabic quarter, is an oil painter’s paradise and almost at every turn of the head there is an attractive view, usually involving glimpses of the Alhambra.

Calçotada A very traditional Catalan dish is the calçotada (kal·so·TA·da). The calçotada, which comes from the region of Tarragona, is made by cooking calçots, a local variety of spring onions, over an open flame. When cooked, the spring onions char on the outside, but remain tender inside. You eat them by brushing off the outer layer of ash and dipping the vegetable into romesco sauce, a spicy sauce made from peppers, crushed almonds, olive oil and tomato. The calçotada symbolizes the coming of spring and every year a large festival celebrating the calçotada is held in Valls in the province of Tarragona. Calçotada is popular in restaurants and often served on a traditional terracotta roof tile, which helps keep the vegetables warm.

The Spanish Language Studies Program at the University of Barcelona is designed for students of all language levels who are dedicated to acquiring and improving their language skills. Your language courses will focus on oral comprehension and expression, listening comprehension and grammar components appropriate to your language level. In addition, you will have the opportunity to take optional Spanish electives in Business, Conversation, Phonetics, Composition and Information Technology.

CEA Barcelona Excursions

Costa Brava The Costa Brava was awesome! We visited Girona’s magnificent Cathedral and enjoyed the old Jewish quarter and views of the Church of Sant Nicolau. In Figueras we went to the Dalí Museum, the second most visited museum in Spain. Later, we traveled to Ampurias, a Greek and Roman settlement with great beaches on the Mediterranean.

Barcelona, Spain

One of the benefits of studying abroad is the ability to venture out and explore the surrounding area. During your orientation in Barcelona, we will give you a calender of CEA Excursions. Typically, semester and year students participate in four excursions per semester: two overnight and two day trips. Summer students have one excursion every two weeks. To give you an idea of the possibilities, below are some postcards from the tours and trips we have offered to our students in the past. For more details, visit www.GoWithCEA.com/barcelona/excursions.

Penedés Wine Country I never knew the production of wine was so interesting and complicated. We visited the home of the famous sparkling wine, “Cava”, Catalán champagne, while exploring the vineyards and underground cellars of the Penedés wineries. At the end of the tour we were able to learn a little about wine tasting and sample some of the vineyards’ specialties. What a great trip!

Mallorca

Tarragona This weekend we got to see the coastal town of Tarragon a and the Monastery of Poblet. We checked out the historic buildings, like the Roman wal ls, circus and amphitheater. Th e Monastery of Poblet is the biggest Cistercian monastery in Europe and I was impressed by its size and architecture.

The Pyrenees Today we visited Aigüestortes National Park, Catalonia's only national park. It is the most remarkable area of the Pyrenese Mountains, dividing Spain and France. The smells of trees and the sights of the Encantats, the Aigüestortes plateau and more than 200 lakes were extremely refreshing after studying hard all week.

I was floored by the beauty of this monastery. Built into a 4,000 ft. cliff, it offers a breathtaking view of the surrounding landscape. Montserrat has been a place of religious pilgrimage for over 1,000 years, but recently people from all over have been making the trip to hike and climb the unusual rock formations. I had great fun hiking the trails around the monastery. Great for awesome pictures!

Almería

The province of Almería offers incredible contrasts of impressive deserts, coasts and cliffs which combine with sandy beaches. It is also a major destination for the film industry. We stayed at a hotel that was built for the film Lawrence of Arabia! We also visited the Alcazaba, a 10th century Arab castle that was captured by Isabel and Ferdinand’s Spanish forces during the reconquest of Spain.

Gibraltar & Tarifa

Two cities that represent such different aspects of history are Seville and Córdoba. We visited both the capital of Andulusia and the vibrant capital of Muslim Spain. The former, Seville, is home to the world’s largest gothic cathedral and the supposed burial grounds of Christopher Columbus. Córdoba on the other hand is home to the Mezquita, one of the world's largest and oldest mosques.

Nerja

We spent this weekend in Tarifa, Spain’s nearest point to Africa. We enjoyed medieval Tarifa, full of Arab flavor and we visited Baelo Claudia, a Roman town. On our way back, we stopped in Gibraltar, Britain's only colony in mainland Europe. There is a troup of monkeys that live there and will feed right out of your hands. As you can see, they're definitely not shy!

Antequera

Salobreña, the jewel of the “Costa Tropical”, is a whitewashed township clinging to a huge lump of rock just behind the shoreline. It is topped by a Moorish castle and surrounded by lush sugar cane plantations. Yes, they harvest sugar in Spain! On top of all of this, Roman remains turn up everywhere. It was amazing to see so much history all in one place!

On the ride to Antequera, I felt like I must have been in a time machine. Antequera is a historical town dating back 5,000 years and known as the "crossroads of Andalusia". It was as if history was alive as I saw Bronze Age Iberian tribal burial mounds, Roman baths, a Moorish castle, Gothic churches, Renaissance fountains and Baroque bell towers.

CEA Madrid Excursions Madrid, Spain

One of the benefits of studying abroad is the ability to venture out and explore the surrounding area. During your orientation in Madrid, we will give you a calender of CEA Excursions. Typically, semester and year students participate in four excursions per semester: two overnight and two day trips. Summer students have one excursion every two weeks. To give you an idea of the possibilities, below are some postcards from the tours and trips we have offered to our students in the past. For more details, visit www.GoWithCEA.com/madrid/excursions.

Ávila & Salamanca

Córdoba

Córdoba was once the capital of Muslim Spain and is home to one of the largest and oldest mosques in the world. I was awed by the beautiful architecture that has been so well preserved for centuries. We also strolled through the old Jewish quarter, with its shaded, narrow winding streets and beautiful courtyards.

Granada

Toledo Toledo, called the City of Three Cultures, really impressed me! From the Alcazar, a 10th century Moorish fortress, to the 16t h century Cathedral, to the Synagogue , this city displa ys the peaceful coexistence of these three rich cultures. On top of all of that, the beautiful scenery surrounding the city was a great break from the busy streets of Madrid .

Segovia Today we visited Segovia, a town outside of Madrid with a fully functioning Roman aqueduct. I can't believe that something built in the 1st century BC is still in use! We also visited the Alcazar, an 11th century castle and military fortress said to have been the inspiration for Walt Disney's design of Sleeping Beauty's castle.

38

We enjoyed visiting two old Spanish towns this weekend. Encircled by 11th century stonewalls, Ávila is one of Spain's best-preserved medieval treasures and made for an interesting trip. In Salamanca, we strolled through the streets, home to many striking baroque sandstone buildings and the oldest university in the Spanish speaking world.

El Escorial & Valle de los Caídos El Escorial is a 16th century royal palace-monastery, the largest Spanish building of the Renaissance period. It houses important masterpieces from the royal Hapsburg collections, which I was thrilled to gaze upon. I also visited the impressive Valle de los Caídos memorial, which Franco built for those who died in the Spanish Civil war.


Salamanca is home to a myriad of striking baroque sandstone buildings and the oldest Spanish language university in the world.

Surrounding the banks of the Río Tormes, Salamanca is the quintessential university city in Spain. Its golden sandstone buildings, such as the Casa de Conchas and the New and Old Cathedrals, give the city a pleasant and graceful atmosphere that welcomes students and visitors alike. As a CEA participant, you will attend classes at the oldest university in the Spanish-speaking world, where great figures of Spanish humanism and literature once studied and taught. In addition, you will be able to take advantage of numerous cultural activities including city tours, dance classes, art expositions and film screenings. Close to the Portuguese border, Madrid and the northern coasts of Spain, Salamanca is a great point from which to explore other parts of Spain and Europe. Its location, combined with the university's prestigious Spanish language learning center and all the amenities of CEA, make Salamanca a perfect destination for studying abroad.

Student Perspective Name: Cori Kill Home Institution: University of Indianapolis When: Spring 2004 “My experience in Salamanca has been incredible. Not only am I improving my Spanish speaking skills, but I am making great friends from all parts of the world! The scenery is absolutely breathtaking as I walk to school each morning. The lifestyle is laid back and very refreshing, and the way the Salmentinos take advantage of each day to the fullest is amazing.” Learn what other past participants have to say at www.GoWithCEA.com/salamanca/profiles.

You are bound to see everyone in the Plaza Mayor, one of the finest squares in Spain. You will often hear the phrase “debajo del reloj,” or “under the clock” when planning a meeting place in Salamanca.

Take a Closer Look La Rana Every city has its own legends and folklore that make them special, and Salamanca is no different. The legend of la Rana (the frog) is famous among university students throughout Spain. This bit of superstition surrounding the University of Salamanca stems from a small frog carved into the façade of the 16th century main university building. It is perched among hundreds of intricate carvings and can be quite difficult to find. Luck will find you, however, if you are able to spot it, as it is said that if you can find la Rana you are sure to have success on your exams. Even better, if you can find la Rana unaided, you will return to Salamanca in the future. What better luck could a student ask for!

There's no way you could possibly have a bad experience in such a beautiful, friendly and

jovial place, and CEA goes above and beyond the call of duty to make sure you have nothing short of an amazing time.

For more details, visit www.GoWithCEA.com/salamanca/excursions.

Santiago de Compostela It was nice to venture out into the province of Galicia and visit this cultural gem. Santiago is one of the most important pilgrimages of the Middle Ages and visitors have been flocking here for centuries from all over the world. I loved wandering through the old quarter with its narrow streets and found myself getting lost in the beauty of its Baroque architecture and quaint plazas.

Ávila

Segovia The first thing that struck me when I stepped into town, was the massive 1,900 year old aqueduct, which until a few years ago, still brought water to the town. We also toured the Alcázar, where Christopher Columbus secured financing for his historic trip to the Americas. The castle is rumored to be Disney’s inspiration for Sleeping Beauty’s castle.

At 3,720 ft. above sea lev el, Avila is the highest city in Spain. It is still surrounde d by a 40 ft. tall city wall built in the 11th century. Just outside the city walls is "Cuatro Postes" which off ers the best view of the city. Before leaving, we found our way to "El Molino de la Los a" or "The Windmill of the Losa", which houses one of the best restaurants to sample Ávila's fine cuisin e.

Cáceres

Toledo

Our visit to the capital of the Extremadura province, Cáceres, was certainly a lesson in architecture. Cáreres is characterized by its Roman, Islamic, Gothic and Renaissance architecture in its palaces, convents, towers and churches. I was lost within its labyrinth of medieval streets and plazas, of course until I found the feet of San Pedro and gave them a rub for good luck.

w w w. G o W i t h C E A . c o m 800.266.4441

Walking through its streets, I felt like I stepped back into the Middle Ages. Toledo was the capital of Spain from the 13th century to the 15th century, so the medieval architecture is impressive! Toledo was also renowned for its steel and sword-making. Kings from all parts of the world have had swords and sabers forged in Toledo. Even Japanese Samurai were aware of the existence of Toledo’s steel in the 16th Century!

Seville

Located on the banks of the Guadalquivir River, Seville is one of the world’s most enchanting cities.

Why CEA in Seville?

In addition, the spring festivals of Semana Santa and the Feria de Abril are two of the most extravagant celebrations in all of Europe, attracting Spaniards, students and visitors from all parts of the world.

Flamenco Flamenco is perhaps the most emblematic symbol of Spanish culture and art. Its exact origins cannot be attributed to any one particular musical legacy; rather 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. This beautiful art form is demonstrated through song, guitar and dance and expresses powerful emotions, from profound sorrow to great joy. It is also considered to be a dynastic art form, being passed down and developed from generation to generation within gypsy families throughout Spain. The Triana neighborhood of Seville is often thought of as 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. Flamenco can also be enjoyed in other parts of Seville in tablaos (flamenco bars), fiestas and juergas (informal, private parties). This art form is a great cultural treasure that is an important component of your experience in Spain.

The Liberal Arts & Sciences Program at Pablo de Olavide University allows students of all language levels to focus on language acquisition while taking electives taught in English or Spanish in a variety of subject areas. You will begin your session with a 1-week intensive language preparation course taught at the Centro de Lenguas e Intercambio Cultural (CLIC). This course is focused on grammar and conversation and is designed to help you prepare for your university placement exam.You will then choose up to five courses at the university.* Because of the diverse course offerings and instruction in both Spanish and English, you can earn credits toward your major or additional graduation requirements. All classes are taught at the university's all inclusive campus, located just five miles from downtown Seville.To see course requirements for your selected session, please refer to the charts below.

CEA Seville Excursions Seville, Spain

One of the benefits of studying abroad is the ability to venture out and explore the surrounding area. During your orientation in Seville, we will give you a calender of CEA Excursions. Typically, semester and year students participate in four excursions per semester: two overnight and two day trips. Summer students have one excursion every two weeks. To give you an idea of the possibilities, below are some postcards from the tours and trips we have offered to our students in the past. For more details, visit www.GoWithCEA.com/seville/excursions.

Córdoba

Aracena We just got back from a great trip to Aracena - it was so nice to get out of the city and up into the mountains! We visited the ‘Gruta de Maravillas’, or Cave of Marvels, and saw gorgeous underwater lakes and beautiful rock formations. For lunch, we tried Aracena's famous Jabugo ham, known throughout Spain as a true delicacy.

Cádiz

Jerez de la Fronte ra

Talk about history! Cádiz is the oldest inhabited city in Europe, founded by the Phonecians in 1,100 BC. It is nicknamed “Little Havana” because its downtown district is siad to resemble Cuba. After seeing the sights, we had a great time on the miles of sandy beaches surrounding the peninsula. This town’s got it all!

We experienced Anda lusian culture at its finest in the quaint city of Jerez de la Frontera. While there , we visited a sherry bode ga, which has been arou nd for centuries. We also go t to see the magnificent and rare Carthusian horses at the Royal Andalucian Sc hool of Equestrian Art. Jerez is also well known for flam enco, so of course, we treated ourselves to a show.

Gibraltar

Granada

We visited Gibraltar, the southernmost point of continental Europe, this weekend ! Gibraltar is Britain's only colony on mainland Europe - it was weird to see signs in English after so many months of reading in Spanish. One of the most fun things we did was visit a troup of monkeys that live on the peninsula. As you can see, I made a friend!

48

In Córdoba, I saw the amazing architecture of one of the oldest and largest mosques in the world. We also visited a tiny synagogue in the judería, the old Jewish quarter. During the afternoon, we wandered through the many winding cobblestone streets and enjoyed viewing some of the interior, white-washed patios that Córdoba is famous for.

w w w. G o W i t h C E A . c o m 800.266.4441

Granada is one of Spain's most well-loved cities. We spent the weekend exploring the maze of narrow, cobblestone streets and enjoying the diverse culture from the Albaicín, the old Arab quarter, to Sacromonte, the gypsy quarter. The most spectacular site was the Alhambra, a 14th century Arab palace, which houses lush gardens and many beautiful rooms and patios.

Ski Weekend in the Alps Two days of skiing in the Alps at 12,000 feet! I have now truly lived. I can't even express how exhilarating it was to swoosh down that French powder and know that I am doing what others only dream about. And to top it all off, the onsite staff even treated us to some delicious regional foods and wines.

The village of Moustiers Sainte Marie was breathtak ing. I now understand why it is famous for its painted Faïence porcelain, sold in almost every shop in town. The surrounding landscape holds miles upon miles of summery lavender fields and Le Lac du Sainte Croix, whi ch flows out of the beautiful Gorges du Verdon.

Arles

Cassis The shops which line the boardwalk and the seaside restaurants have made Cassis stand out in my mind as a terrific Mediterranean town. First, we took a hike along the white rock cliffs and then sunbathed on a stunning beach next to crystal blue waters. Later we enjoyed rich café at the marina.

Avignon & Pont du Gard Strolling down the winding crooked streets of Avignon and taking in the beautiful Gothic architecture was almost as neat as visiting the "Palais des Papes", the former residence of the popes of Avignon. I saw history come to life in the ancient "Pont du Gard" built by Agrippa in the first century.

Since I love the works of Vincent Van Gogh, visiting Arles has been awesom e, as he painted 200 of his masterp ieces in this "Rome of France". The remains of Roman theaters and an amphith eater have inspired my passion for history to greater heights , as they must have inspired Van Gogh’s art.

French Riviera

My entire life I've heard about the French Riviera, but being there in person, discovering the Mediterranean coast with its beautiful beaches and visiting the Matisse museum in Nice, has been the experience of a lifetime. I even strolled along the famous Promenade des Anglais to watch the sunset with the sea on one side and the posh hotels on the other. Truly memorable!

CEA Dijon Excursions Dijon, France

One of the benefits of studying abroad is the ability to venture out and explore the surrounding area. During your orientation in Dijon, we will give you a calender of CEA Excursions. Typically, semester and year students participate in four excursions per semester: two overnight and two day trips. Summer students have one excursion every two weeks. To give you an idea of the possibilities, below are some postcards from the tours and trips we have offered to our students in the past. For more details, visit www.GoWithCEA.com/dijon/excursions.

Alps Region Strasbourg The Kronenbourg Brewery and "la Petite France" wer e extremely fun places to visi t. We also went to the Moder n Art Museum, which was incredible. I love this place! Although it is a small city, (40,000 people) Strasbourg is also the seat of the Council of Europe and of the European Parliament (so in a sense, the political capita l of Europe). Not bad for a small town.

Touring through the Alps region was marvelous. From Switzerland to Italy, I fell completely in love with Europe. We even stopped in Turino, Milano, Mont Blanc and Annecy. And although we did a lot of traveling, it was so fun that I almost didn't sleep all weekend.

Paris & Versailles Provençe Region Exploring the medieval villages and historical sites like the Roman Theater in Orange, the majestic rock formations of Les Baux de Provençe, and le Pont du Gard were impressive. The Provençe region is truly a spectacular piece of country.

Tour de Burgundy

Loire Valley Châteaux Catching a glimpse of the French royal life was wonderful as I gazed at the artistic gardens and the 17th century artwork and furniture. Not only was I able to admire the beauty of Loire Valley, but we visited the renowned Chambord and Chenonceau châteaux. Gorgeous!

We toured the beautiful Burgundy countryside and visited Autun, with it’s two monumental roman gates and a magnificent roman theater, the largest in the western Roman Empire. Autuns Cathedral of Saint-Lazare contains amazing Romanesque sculpture. We traveled to Le Creusot to tour the Royal Crystalworks and castle and then on to Tournus, which is a striking reminder of country life in former times. After our whirlwind tour, we settled down for an excellent “Burgundy” dinner.

Pont du Gard & Aigues-Mortes

Annecy Charming does not describe the beauty of Annecy adequately. This "Venice of the Alps" has such allure that I was sad to have to leave. Exploring the city's many canals, flower-covered bridges and arcaded streets sure made my day a memorable one. I can’t wait to go back!

Pont du Gard, a huge bridge and aqueduct built over 2,000 years ago, really put the amazing architecture and history of the area into perspective. Afterwards, we spent time in the medieval walled city of Aigues-Mortes, or “dead waters”, where the local festival “Revivre” had begun. It really felt as if we’d stepped back in time to enjoy the best of the Middle Ages.

Beaujolais

Lyon We spent the day wandering through the shops of Lyon and the night experiencing the sparkling light festival of La Fête de la Lumière in the old downtown area. The nightlif e in Lyon was so alive that I couldn't help but enjoy myself until the wee hours of the morning.

Ski Weekend in the Alps No where on earth is there beauty comparable to the Alps. Back home, the mountains simply do not measure up. And the skiing! This weekend has been amazing, and even though I'm a little sore, I've never felt so rested and happy. What a great way to relax after a big exam!

CEA Paris Excursions Paris, France

One of the benefits of studying abroad is the ability to venture out and explore the surrounding area. During your orientation in Paris, we will give you a calender of CEA Excursions. Typically, semester and year students participate in four excursions per semester: two overnight and two day trips. Summer students have one excursion every two weeks. To give you an idea of the possibilities, below are some postcards from the tours and trips we have offered to our students in the past. For more details, visit www.GoWithCEA.com/paris/excursions.

Giverny I have always had a passion for art, so being in Giverny was fabulous. Claude Monet’s gardens were especial y beautiful. My favorite place that we visited was the American Impressionist Museum, which has works from several American artists who flocked to this remarkable place to visit Monet throughout his life.

Mont St. Michel

Reims Visiting a champagne cellar in Reims was fascinating and seeing the magnificent Cathédrale Notre-Dame, where every French king has been crowned since the days of Jeanne d'Arc, was incredible. I feel like I've stepped back in time.

Today I climbed the winding streets of the Gothic monastery, Mont St. Michel, built on a rocky islet which overlooks the largest bay in Europe. My jaw dropped twice today at the sight of such splendor - both of the bay and the monastery. This 1,000 year-old wonder is truly an awesome attraction!

Strasbourg

Fontainbleau Home of French kings throughout the centuries, this gorgeous château was stripped bare during the French Revolution and many of the original furnishings are still unaccounted for. Napoleon took it upon himself to restore the abandoned palace and grounds to rival those at Versailles. I also enjoyed the forest, the largest in France, surrounding the château with many trails.

68

Loire Valley Châteaux Seeing the renowned Chambord and Chenoneau châteaux was breathtaking. The beauty of Loire Valley and the image of French royal life made me feel as if I’d walked into a storybook. The 17th century artwork and magnificently manicured gardens are truly wonderful.

I took a cruise down the Rhine and it was incredible. The view was unbelievable and the guide told us all about the history of the area. Ownership has been disputed by France and Germany for centuries, and it has changed hands many times. The mix of two cultures has produced delicious food and unique architecture. As a symbol of hope for the future, this troubled region has become the seat of the European Council.

Domani faccio un giro al mare. "Tomorrow I'm going to the beach." Fare uno squillo: "to telephone" A casual way of calling someone. Figurati: "Go figure!" This is used both as a response to "Thank you," as in "no problem" and in the same way that Americans use it - to express wonder.

Pompeii

Assisi To be in Assisi and see the hometown of St. Francis was so cool. We visited his tomb and saw several of the masterpieces of medieval art known to the area, such as the illustrious Basilica of San Francesco, which has affected art and architecture throughout Europe. We also saw the great paintings of Giotto and Martini.

I read about Pompeii as a child, but to see this place preserved and untouched by time - there are no words. It was as if we witnessed a time capsule being opened and an ancient civilization emerged. Their story petrified in lava and ash is a sad one, but also so amazing that I couldn’t help but be intrigued.

Rome

Siena Siena, a beautiful Tuscan city in central Italy, still has its medieval ambience with walls and gates that surround the city. While there, we visited its Gothic municipal palace fille d with paintings and discovere d why the city has rivaled Florence throughout the age s and how it continues to contend with her in art, bea uty and history.

What can I say, It’s Rome, the Eternal City. Rome and the Vatican City are so full of history and so rich in art and e culture that I wish I had mor The all. it time to explore Colosseum was even more amazing than any movie could portray and the Sistine Chapel is enough to boggle your mind, especially considering that Michelangelo completed the ceiling in only four years!

Chianti I feel like I've stumbled upon heaven. Chianti's beautiful countryside and ancient way of life have captivated me. The vineyards are perfect rows of precious grapes that satisfied my parched mouth during a wine tasting in one of the oldest and most famous vineyards in the world.

A labyrinth of winding streets, canals, channels, piazzas and bridges almost made me dizzy with fun as we explored this famous city. My roommate and I enjoyed a calming gondola ride through the meandering canals, visited the Doges' Palace and strolled through the pigeons in the Piazza San Marco. We also saw the amazing modern art collection at the Guggenheim . It was too much excitement for one city!

Eligibility Throughout the ages, Rome has been a city of majesty and war. Perhaps this is only natural given its legendary beginnings. Long ago, King Numitor was overthrown by his brother Amulius. Not wanting any competition to the throne, Amulius forced Numitor's daughter, Rhea Silvia, to become a vestal virgin. However, Mars, the god of war, desired Rhea Silvia and together they conceived twin sons, Romulus and Remus. Amulius discovered their existence and left them to die in a trough in the Tiber River. Fate kept the trough afloat as it sailed down river and to shore. Two sacred animals of Mars, a shewolf and a woodpecker, nursed the boys until they were discovered by one of the king's shepherds who raised them as his own. Romulus and Remus became adventurous young men who sought out and murdered Amulius, restoring their grandfather to the throne. In 753 BC the two returned to the land where their lives had been spared as infants and decided to establish a city each upon neighboring hills. Romulus built a wall around his new city, but Remus laughed at how low it was and to prove his point leapt over the wall. Romulus, infuriated by his brother's mockery, slew him. He then named his city Rome (Roma) after himself. To populate his city, he invited exiles and fugitives to dwell in its walls and kidnapped women from Sabines to be the men's wives. After many years as ruler, he disappeared mysteriously during a storm. It is said he was taken to heaven by his father, where he now dwells as the god Quirinus.

Studying abroad opened opportunities that I would not have realized if I had stayed in the States. My semester abroad shaped my life in many different ways that I will continue to discover throughout my entire life.

CEA Rome Excursions Rome, Italy

One of the benefits of studying abroad is the ability to venture out and explore the surrounding area. During your orientation in Rome, we will give you a calender of CEA Excursions. Typically, semester and year students participate in four excursions per semester: two overnight and two day trips. Summer students have one excursion every two weeks. To give you an idea of the possibilities, below are some postcards from the tours and trips we are considering. For more details, visit www.GoWithCEA.com/rome/excursions.

Florence

Ostia Rome's port city, founded 400 years after Rome, at one time was a thriving metropolitan area. Today I walked along those same streets in Ostia Antica, visiting frescoed houses and baths in this remarkably preserved ancient city. After seeing the oldest synagogue discovered in Italy, we actually went back to one of the baths and experienced it firsthand!

Blue skies, red tiled roofs, soaring cathedrals, ornate palaces, amazing art collections and fabulous shopping awaited my arrival in the thriving city of Florence. I finally visited world famous li sites such as the Galleria deg o, om Du ce's Uffizi, Floren Palazzo Vecchio and one of the city's many bountiful markets. I can see why Florence is for lovers, but I still had fun!

Tivoli

Capri Sailing around the isle of Capri was great! The view was extraordinary, but what made this excursion the bes t was sailing into the Blue Grotto, the most famous of caverns along the coastline. As we drifted through the mysterious surroundings, our guide wove a wonderful tapestry of maritime stories of days gone by. How colorful!

We explored Hadrian's Villa with its extravagant gardens and gorgeous fountains. I almost felt like a Roman senator, escaping to the serene beauty overlooking the Roman campagna away from the heat of Rome. If you’re looking for the posterchild of ancient excess, look no further. Wow!

Take A Closer Look Frog Cakes Balfours, the largest bakery in Australia and based in Adelaide, has been around since the 1800's. Their mascot and what has become a South Australian heritage icon was introduced in the 1920's the Frog Cake. Do not get the wrong idea; these are nothing like meat pies, but rather a tasty sponge cake coverd in a special butter cream and shelled in color fondant which takes the shape of a cute frog head croaking on top. Much like the Krispy Kreme phenomenon that has stormed North America, Aussies seem to always enjoy an opportunity to eat a Frog Cake. In fact, there is now an assortment of Frog Cakes available, from chocolate ones to holiday frogs, like the Easter Yellow Chick Frog Cake and the Red Father Christmas Frog Cake. The cakes have gained such a following that one couple even piled them high as a substitute for their wedding cake. Knowing this, be sure to sample a few Frog Cakes while you are studying Down Under. You can find them at the Balfours store in Rundle Mall, or in many grocery or convenience stores throughout Adelaide.

Hot sun, amazing wildlife, a beautiful city and a gorgeous campus... If I had not made the decision to study in Adelaide, Australia, I would have regretted it for the rest of my life! I am just sad that I will never get the opportunity to see Australia for the first time again!

CEA Adelaide Excursions

Cleland and Handorf On our visit to Cleland Wildlife Park, we were able to wander freely amongst kangaroos, wallabies, koalas and other native Aussie animals. I even got the chance to feed a kangaroo, something I have always wanted to do! A short distance away, we visited Handorf, the oldest German settlement in Australia. This quaint town is famous for its beer, pottery and crafts made from red gum trees.

Fleurieu Peninsula

Our trip to the Peninsula was amazing. We visited one of the 60 wine cellars, enjoyed the long sandy beaches and rugged cliffs. In the water, we watched for whales, seals and sea lions, and we swam, surfed and snorkeled. This region is home to 20 nation al parks that highlight the environment with birdwatching and nature hikes. In the winter, you can even see visiting penguins!

Kangaroo Island Our tour around the island took us to the Remarkable Rocks, Seal Bay, Admiral's Arch, Mini Sahara and the Kelly Hill Caves. In addition to kangaroos, we were able to see a whole host of Australia's native wildlife and a few flowers that only grow on this island. As Australia's third largest island, it is too big to explore in a day or even two. I am ready to go back and see what I missed!

We were able to observe diverse species of bird, fish, kangaroo, wombat, snake and goanna, all in their natural habitats. Look out Steve Irwin, here I come!

Flinders Ranges National Park This is the real outback! While trekking through the park to Wilpena Pound, we saw emus and wallabies. I can see why Aussies like to vacation here for its breathtaking scenery and many spectacular mountain views, gorges and chasms.

Barossa Valley This unique region of Australia is home to premium wines, fine restaurants, magnificent old churches and many wineries, all in a peaceful rural setting. We had a gourmet 3-course lunch and a tour of 3 wineries.

Jenolan Caves

Hunter Valley After morning tea, overlooking the picturesque Hawkesbury River, we visited two wineries and learned all about winemaking during a private wine tasting. We also went to the Hunter Valley Cheese Company and tasted a number of delicious cheeses that still have my taste buds craving more.

Canberra Byron Bay There is nothing better than spending the day shopping in an art district for pottery, sculptures and Aboriginal art, unless of course it is relaxing by the seaside. Byron Bay was a great place for both passions.

Blue Mountains We didn't make it to all three National Parks in the Blue Mountains, but the trails we did hike were perfect. We went on a traditional Australian bushwalk and then horseback riding through a maze of scenic beauty.

As a Political Science major it was awesome seeing the Australian government in action at the Parliamentary Triangle. But I must admit, I also enjoyed the lookout points on Black Mountain and visiting the Australian Institute of Sport.

Melbourne “Marvellous Melbourne” hos ted the World’s Fair in 1880. The Royal Exhibition Building was built for it, and this massi ve structure once held the Aussie Parliament. It was fun exploring Melbourne's Nation al Gallery of Victoria too, whi ch has the most comprehensive collection of Australian art in the country. But I really enjoyed catching a game of Australian footy afterward .

There are three modes of transportation the true Londoner uses: feet, tube and taxi. Although the first two might be a bit lighter on your pocketbook, there is nothing quite like taking a London taxi. Not only are the vehicles specially made for the sole purpose of carting people around the city, but the cars are made extra comfortable for the cabbies, who spend on average 3,000 hours a year driving them. With a few exceptions, no vehicle is allowed to ply for hire on the streets of London without being able to do a u-turn in 25 feet, which allows cab drivers to do a quick swivel when they see a wealthy fare in front of Harrods. No worries about crazy drivers though; each of the 24,000 licensed taxi drivers in London have had to pass the famous Knowledge test, which the London Taxi Drivers Association says takes one to two years of full-time study to obtain. A green metal badge indicates that the driver has the full Knowledge qualification, a yellow badge only a particular suburban area. You can be sure that taking a cab in London will get you where you need to be safely and in style.

One of the most incredible aspects of studying abroad with CEA is the opportunity to form relationships with others in the program, while at the same time learning so much about yourself. Living in London was an amazing experience that has impacted my life and who I am in so many ways - whatever you have to do, make the sacrifices, get out there and enjoy life... you won't regret it!

For more details, visit www.GoWithCEA.com/london/excursions.

Oxford

Stonehenge As we approached the mysterious stone outcropping, I was awestruck, knowing the ancients hauled all these 5-ton stones into place. First built around 3,000 BC, the stonehenge we see is actually the third incarnation of the monument built before 1,500 BC. On our way back to London, we stopped at the Salisbury Cathedral, whose highest spire rises to 123 meters and holds the best preserved Magna Carta and Europe's oldest working clock.

Warwick Castle & Stratford

In Warwick, we had the g pleasure of witnessing joustin in ns itio pet com and archery the gardens of Britain’s finest medieval castle! Afterward, we went to Stratford-upon-Avon and visited William Shakespeare’s a childhood home followed by To re. eat Th an Sw play at the go, or not to go - ’tis a silly question.

As we walked through the Christchurch College dining room, I instantly recognized it from the Harry Potter movies. This college is one of the 39 colleges which make up Oxford University. After our tour, we ate lunch at the popular Eagle and Child Pub. Then we spent the afternoon rowing on the Isis.

Bath Although famous for being the only place in Britain wit h hot springs and the 2000 year old Roman Baths for which the city is named, Bath has emerged as a hot spot for music, art and culture in England. We too k the tour of this World Heritage city in our own private coach to see the oth er sights of Bath, including the Royal Crescent, Bath Abbey and Pulteney Bridge.

Windsor & Eton Brighton We had a blast in Brighton. It is like the British equivalent to Atlantic city with its boardwalk, arcades and rides. The nightlife is truly exciting. During the day, we went to the magnificent Royal Pavilion to explore. This famous seaside residence was transformed from a farmhouse into the palatial estate it is today for King George IV. The opulence of the Pavilion truly amazed me.

Windsor has so much to offer someone like me. Windsor Castle is Europe’s longest lived-in castle, inhabited from the 11th century to the present, but beyond being a residence, the chapel houses tombs of Henry VIII, Jane Seymour and others. Eton was exciting as well. High Street, the main attraction that leads from the world famous Eton College to Windsor Castle, enjoys an international reputation for the arts, antiques and more.

CEA Cork Excursions Cork, Ireland

One of the benefits of studying abroad is the ability to venture out and explore the surrounding area. During your orientation in Cork, we will give you a calender of CEA Excursions. Typically, semester and year students participate in two excursions per semester: one overnight and one day trip. Summer students have one excursion every two weeks. To give you an idea of the possibilities, below are some postcards from the tours and trips we have offered to our students in the past. For more details, visit www.GoWithCEA.com/ cork/excursions.

Dublin Cliffs of Moher O'Brien's Tower gave me the perfect outlook to gaze into the unending horizon of the Atlantic. Atop the Cliffs of Moher in the western coastal regions of County Clare, I was able to encounter the most stunning view of my life.

Blarney Castle I’m told I don't need to do anything to obtain the "gift of gab", but I kissed the Blarney Stone anyway. Exploring this castle, climbing the spiraling staircases to overlook lush gardens, and descending into the dungeon have made this an awesome experience.

Dingle Peninsula

I love Ireland, but I've never felt more Irish than at Dingle Peninsula, with its mix of medieval history, unspoiled nature, true Irish culture and strong Gaelic influence. The best part though, was swimming with Fungi, a dolphin that frequents the harbor waters.

Dublin is a pretty cool city. We checked out the Dublin Castle, toured the Guinness Brewery, and ended the day utiwith a visit to the most bea t| crip nus ma fully illustrated ls, in the world, the Book of Kel . AD 800 und aro n writte g Perhaps someday my writin like ry nda lege talents will be the Book of Kells.

Aran Islands On the Aran Islands we witnessed islander customs such as speaking Gaelic and gatherings called “céilithe”, which feature Irish folk dancing. We also encountered historic landmarks, ancient ruins and churches constructed in early Christian times.

Killarney The brochure calls it "uncultivated Irish beauty"; I call it heaven on earth. I now understand why for more than 200 years tourists have flocked here - Killarney is more than just a quaint town; the National Park with its three lakes and scenic mountains took my breath away!

Studying abroad brings to life subjects you've been studying for years - history, geography and biology just to name a few. It's also a time when students create friendships that last for years.

Each city has its own unique flavor. Enrich your study abroad experience by participating in immersion activities. Our onsite staff can provide insight into your host culture and help you choose immersion activities that match your interests.

Upon arrival in your host city, you will receive an extensive orientation organized by CEA, including a city tour, a tour of your academic institution and a review of local customs. We will introduce you to onsite resources, from banking and local transportation to immersion activities. You will be provided a program itinerary, as well as important health and safety information about your destination. It is also a great opportunity to get to know the other participants and the CEA onsite staff.

For more information or step-by-step instructions, please contact one of our knowledgeable advisors at 1-800-266-4441 or visit our website at www.GoWithCEA.com/aid.

Before You Go, You Need To Know

CEA Policies Before you apply, review our application, payment and onsite policies at www.GoWithCEA.com/policies. These policies explain your responsibilities as a CEA student, including financial commitments and acceptable behavior. By applying to a CEA program, you agree to our policies. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact a CEA advisor at 800-266-4441 or info@GoWithCEA.com.

Course Pre-Approval You need to visit your study abroad office on campus and speak with your academic advisor about your CEA program before you leave. It is important to obtain pre-approval for your studies and ensure that the courses you've chosen will transfer back to your home institution. It is at your school's discretion to approve the program and determine the specific number of credits to award you. It is important to have alternate courses and language levels approved in the event a course is cancelled, there is a time conflict between courses or you do not test into the level you expected. The more you have approved, the easier it will be to make a change to your schedule while abroad.

Course Prerequisites Courses in English CEA offers programs with courses taught in English around the world. For full immersion programs, you may study in England, Australia or Ireland. For English courses taught in non-English speaking countries, CEA offers programs in Spain, France, Italy and Costa Rica. Although these courses do not have language requirements, they may have other prerequisites, such as required majors or completed credits in a particular field of study. Review course prerequisites online before applying or contact a CEA advisor at info@GoWithCEA.com or 800-266-4441 or if you have any questions. Language Courses CEA offers language programs for students of all language levels in the following countries: Costa Rica, Mexico, Spain, France and Italy. Before your program begins, you will take a placement exam which will determine your language level. Use the following descriptions as a guide to help you determine which language level you may test into:

• Advanced - Advanced students are usually those with at least five to six semesters of college-level language experience and have taken at least one or two content courses in their foreign language of study. Certain programs may distinguish between Lower and Higher Advanced language levels. "Advanced I" or "Lower Advanced" typically means at least five semesters of college level language experience, while "Advanced II" or "Higher Advanced" typically means at least six semesters. • Superior - Superior students are typically those who have at least eight or more semesters of college level language experience and have taken several content courses in their foreign language of study. Superior students possess extremely high proficiency in oral, composition and listening comprehension skills.

Expand. Explore. Experience.

Studying abroad is an amazing opportunity and CEA is proud to be a provider of quality study abroad programs around the world. As a CEA participant, you have the opportunity for academic and personal growth. In order to make the most of this experience, you need to prepare adequately. Start your journey off right by reading the following sections.

This information is provided as a tool to help you assess your language level. When selecting an academic program, it is important that you are realistic about your language proficiency. Keep in mind that most foreign institutions hold higher standards for students when assessing language levels than you might expect from your home institution. In addition, you may not be able to read and speak at the same level. Foreign institutions take all this into consideration when making placements. Final language assessment will be determined by the host institution upon arrival in your destination city. CEA cannot guarantee language placement or course selections.

Passports & Visas To travel overseas, all students are required to have a passport. If you do not yet have one, start the process early. For an additional fee, you can expedite the process and have your passport within as little as two weeks. US students may obtain the latest information on how to acquire a passport at www.travel.state.gov/passport_services, while Canadian students should visit www.ppt.gc.ca. Some countries also require a student visa. If your host country has visa requirements, we'll provide you with additional information and resources once you confirm your participation with CEA. Obtaining official travel documentation is your responsibility. Please contact CEA at 800-266-4441 or info@GoWithCEA.com if you have any questions.

Pre-Departure Material Prior to your departure, CEA will send you information via email and mail. This information, which will help prepare you for the journey ahead, includes interesting facts about your study abroad destination and academic program, important details regarding your financial obligations and suggestions for what to pack and what to expect upon arrival. To make the most of your study abroad experience, be sure to read all the materials that are sent to you.

• Beginner - Beginner students are those with little or no prior foreign language experience. • Intermediate - Intermediate students are generally those with at least three to four semesters of college-level language experience who are prepared to take content courses in their foreign language of study. Certain programs may distinguish between Low and High Intermediate language levels. "Low Intermediate" typically means at least three semesters of college level language experience, while "High Intermediate" typically means at least four semesters.

Agreement and Release 1. I understand that my participation in a study abroad program ("Program") organized by CULTURAL EXPERIENCES ABROAD, INC., an Illinois corporation ("CEA") is contingent on CEA's review and acceptance of my CEA Application ("Application"). 2. I acknowledge that I have read and accept the terms and conditions set forth in CEA's Policies, available on CEA's website at www.GoWithCEA.com/ policies, which are incorporated herein by reference and which constitute part of this Application. This agreement is a legally binding contract. 3. I acknowledge that I may engage in activities that involve risk of loss of property, personal injury, illness or death. I hereby assume all of the foregoing risks and I release, waive, discharge and agree to hold harmless CEA and its officers, directors, employees and agents from any loss or liability in any way relating thereto. I unconditionally release CEA from any claims for damage, injury, loss, or expense of any nature resulting from events beyond its control, including but not limited to acts of God, war, strikes, crime, terrorism, sickness or quarantine, government restrictions or regulations. This release also applies to any losses arising from the use of any vehicle or from the selection of, or from any act or omission by, any housing agency, host family, travel agency, transportation provider, hotel or excursion provider, host institution, company or individual. 4. I understand that I will be traveling to a foreign country, with different customs, standards, laws and risks than I am unaccustomed to. I understand and acknowledge that (a) I may become sick or injured while participating in a Program; (b) I may be arrested or imprisoned if I do not conform to local laws; (c) there exists crime in foreign countries and that I may be a victim of crime; and (d) I may not agree with local customs and standards. I accept the abovedescribed risks and other risks associated with travel in, to and among foreign countries. I understand that I am responsible for exercising caution and common sense at all times and agree to release and not hold CEA responsible for any such problems I encounter participating in a Program. 5. If I am sick or injured while participating on the Program, I authorize CEA to take such action as it considers necessary to secure treatment and/or transportation back to the United States. I release CEA from any liability relating to this medical care. I agree to provide the name of an Emergency Contact whom CEA may contact should CEA deem it necessary. If CEA incurs any expense on my behalf that is not covered by insurance, I agree to make immediate repayment upon my return. I hereby acknowledge that this Application does not create any affirmative duty or responsibility for CEA to take any action should I become sick or injured while participating in a Program 6. I will comply with CEA's Policies, including its rules, standards and instructions for program participant behavior. I understand that failure to do so may result in disciplinary action up to and including dismissal from the Program. If dismissed, I understand that (a) the cost of returning home is my own expense, and (b) I will not receive a refund of any kind. 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 interests, safety or welfare of other participants. I agree to indemnify CEA if I do anything that causes CEA to sustain financial loss or liability.

7. I understand that CEA requires all participants to enroll in the CEA insurance plan. I understand it provides insurance coverage for my benefit while in the Program, including limited health, accident and accidental death insurance. 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. 8. I understand that CEA reserves the right to reject my application if, after acceptance, CEA learns of a condition (personal, medical and/or psychological) which in the opinion of CEA may endanger me or others, puts me at risk in a foreign country, and/or shows a history of an inability to adapt to challenging situations. 9. 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 email address to an email distribution list which will be shared with other participants on my Program, unless I notify CEA in writing otherwise. 10. I authorize CEA to release my Application and supporting documentation to my host institution(s), my home institution(s), their personnel and CEA staff. 11. I understand that CEA or the sponsoring academic institution reserves the right to make changes, cancellations or substitutions to the Program for insufficient enrollment, emergency or changed conditions or based upon the interest of the group. I understand that any expenses incurred due to these changes, cancellations or substitutions are my expense. 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. 12. 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 obtain the necessary documents for participation in the Program. I understand that the inability to obtain these visas and other documents does not constitute grounds for a refund or waiving of any program fees. 13.

The parties irrevocably consent to jurisdiction and venue in such courts for such purposes and agree not to seek transfer or removal of any action commenced in any such court.
