Dear students, parents, and valued colleagues in the field of study abroad, Thank you for taking an interest in learning more about the Global Education Solutions that we at CEA have taken pride in furnishing for over 1,000 US colleges and universities and over 13,000 students. We’ve dedicated the pages of this catalog to outlining the many unique opportunities that await our students as they explore their individual paths to becoming life-long learners and mindful, global citizens. This year, CEA has not only continued in the spirit of innovative program development for which we are known, but also approached a new era in study abroad with the advancement of the CEA GlobalCampus Network. The Network is a series of international centers designed to equip students with the tools necessary to face and address the realities of a global future. This educational network, complemented by our partnerships with more than 45 well-respected international institutions, uniquely positions CEA to offer something truly innovative to students and schools that have varying profiles and needs. As globalization advances, economic connections, rapid advances of technology, emerging governments, and geopolitical challenges, all become integral components of higher education curriculum. CEA stands ready to participate in the creation and delivery of an academic model that addresses these challenges by providing cross-border academic programs that largely focus on intercultural competence. As the goal of The Senator Paul Simon Study Abroad Foundation Act of 2007 is to create a foundation that supports remarkably increased US study abroad participation within the next 10 years, all of us committed to the field of international education will be called upon to do our part. CEA has already begun this endeavor and is passionate about furthering the advocacy through a commitment to the following: • Academic Diversity • Exemplary Service • Proven Outcomes • A Future of Innovation This endeavor will not be a one-time placement of students, but rather will be part of the sharing of the responsibility in the education of our future leaders. We vow to do all we can to see that students gain the maximum benefit from their time spent abroad, returning home with new eyes, new ears and new capacities that are critical to completing a first-rate education and becoming a global citizen. Sincerely,

Brian J. Boubek Founder and Executive Director

Think Globally, Tread Lightly

A GREENER CEA

LOOKING TO THE FUTURE

CEA has already taken on many “green” initiatives. Below are the first steps taken towards reaching this goal. Students are also encouraged to email Green@GoWithCEA.com to share ideas on how CEA can continue to provide quality study abroad programs in an environmentally and socially responsible manner.

One of the many benefits of studying abroad is the ability for students to gain a new perspective. As a provider of study abroad programs, CEA has also gained a new perspective on the environmental impacts of globalization on society. That is why CEA is working to adopt environmentally conscious and sustainable practices aimed at minimizing CEA’s footprint, as well as socially responsible ways to support the cultures and local economies in CEA’s destinations. CEA’s goal is not just to operate as a “green” company, but also to develop programs to educate students about sustainablility and environmental issues as they relate to globalization and the international scope. CEA is actively working on implementing the following initiatives: • Purchasing renewable energy credits to offset CEA’s energy consumption • Developing a domestic and international “green” strategy for the operation of all of international offices and facilities • Establishing CEA GlobalCampus programs that address environmental issues as they relate to global warming, business, and globalization • Utilizing bookstore retailers local to CEA GlobalCampus facilities to reduce the impact of shipping and to support local economies • Distributing CEA GlobalCampus class materials through online course management software, thereby reducing paper waste and increasing accessibility • Providing students with excursions, immersion activities, and volunteer opportunities that focus on sustainability and environmental issues • Selecting business partners, both in the US and abroad, who embrace sustainable and environmentally conscious operating practices • Incorporating means during orientation for students to identify local food and merchandise vendors, reducing the distance from which products are shipped and supporting the local economy • Offsetting carbon emissions related to employee air travel through a responsibly managed fund which finances climatic protection projects in various regions of the world

Using Paper Responsibly Most of the waste that CEA has historically generated is paper. Besides using paperless options to reduce this waste, CEA now uses FSC certified paper for letterhead, envelopes and business cards. CEA is in the process of changing all paper stocks for office printers and professionally printed materials to recycled or responsibly managed paper stocks. Office Recycling Program CEA has instituted an office recycling program for paper, plastics, aluminum and glass. CEA also donates used computer equipment to local charities and sends e-waste to a zero-landfill recycling program. Recycled Catalog and Virtual Catalog CEA has chosen to print 30% fewer catalogs for this year than in previous years. To offset the demand, CEA is offering an identical interactive version available online, which allows students to print only those pages that engage them. For students and universities who do receive the physical catalog, CEA has chosen an FSC certified recycled paper, which minimizes its impact, as the chart at left describes.

Proven Outcomes

W H AT D O S T UDEN T S S AY A BOU T C E A ? The positive experiences and learning outcomes of students are of paramount importance to CEA. Tracking and measuring student evaluation results enables CEA to provide superior quality assurance. CEA students fill out a program evaluation upon re-entry after their study abroad experience. This data is analyzed and used to improve the quality of future service and study abroad programs. CEA receives overwhelmingly positive evaluations every year. Below are just a few of the highlights from our Fall 2006 students: • 91% student referral rating • 95% pre-departure advising satisfaction rating • 95% agreed that CEA’s airport reception was prompt and courteous • 94% agreed that CEA Resident Staff met or exceeded their expectations • 95% rated the independence offered in CEA housing positively • 94% rated the number, quality and organization of social and cultural activities positively • 92% rated the number, quality and organization of excursions positively • 85% of CEA alumni survey respondents say their study abroad experience impacted their career path • 95% of CEA alumni survey respondents say that they will promote international education Have a Specific Question for CEA Alumni?

The history of the tango is difficult to trace exactly, but it is agreed that its true birth occurred in the 1880’s in the city of Buenos Aires among the poor working class immigrants from the world over. Over time it grew from music and dance into songs and bands. Full of passion and deeper meaning than words can express, the tango was and still remains the center of a culture all its own. An outsider once observed that the “tango is something else than a soft wave turned into music, it is the deepest dance in the world.” ARGENTINA/BUENOS AIRES

Session

T-a-n-g-ooooo. Step-step-step-step-slide. When first learning the tango, instructors often teach the dancers to spell as they dance. With every note the foot moves. It could never be danced alone; the woman beguiling, the man protecting and supporting. It is a dance of skill, beauty, and as everyone knows, seduction.

Iguazú Falls - “Great Water” One of the Natural Wonders of the World, Iguazú Falls has been declared a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site. Bordering three countries - Brazil, Argentina, and Paraguay - the falls officially belong to Argentina. Four times the width of Niagara Falls, the Iguazú Falls are spread in a horseshoe across 2,700 meters (1.67 miles) and boast of 160 to 275 cascades. But the sheer size of these falls means nothing until this panorama is experienced in person. Even from a distance, the sprays of mist can be felt. The falls are surrounded by the National Park of Iguazú which is filled with over 2,000 species of native flora, 450 species of birds, 80 species of mammals, and insects of all shapes and sizes. From the park’s trails, one can hike to many of the amazing falls, natural pools, outlooks, and the catwalks which extend right into the path of the falls. It is from here that the true meaning of the word iguazú - great water - is understood.

Alumni Perspective As a CEA San Jose alumni, I have many memories of Costa Rica. However, some of my favorite experiences were spent right in downtown San Jose. The downtown area has so many activities to offer, from shopping to culture and nightlife. The downtown markets are one of the best ways to meet local Ticos and shop at the same time. Walking through the vendor stalls I was able to purchase anything from clothing and shoes to local handmade crafts such as paintings and hammocks. It was also a great opportunity to practice my Spanish as I negotiated for items with the vendors.

There are also several museums located downtown. The most interesting one was the National Museum of Costa Rica, which discusses the history of the nation. The best part of the museum was the location; it is inside a historic fortress, complete with bullet holes and canon turrets. When Costa Rica constitutionally abolished its army, the fortress was turned into the museum. Of course, the evenings are when the true cultural experiences occur! In San Jose, everyone goes salsa dancing until all hours of the morning. When I arrived, I did not know how to salsa, so I took lessons along with other Veritas students. After each lesson, we always went out to the salsa clubs to practice and have a great time.

Student Perspective I enjoyed the CEA program. There were many options available for volunteering and participating in activities that involved the Costa Rican community. It was a great experience and was a great opportunity to increase my Spanish speaking abilities. I would recommend the CEA programs to any student that is looking at studying abroad. Mercedes Trujillo 2007 Winter Trimester

COSTA RICA/SAN JOSE

My trimester in San Jose went by so quickly, but I can truly say that going was one of the best decisions of my life. I can sum up my experience using the best known phrase of Costa Rica - Pura vida!

Costa Rican Adventures If you are looking for adventurous activities to try while studying abroad, then Costa Rica is the ideal place for you! San Jose’s central location makes it easy to travel to various sightseeing destinations and other cities around the country. There are countless outdoor activities to take advantage of while visiting Costa Rica. If you like water sports, there are several places on both the Caribbean and Pacific coasts and several places inland to choose from. You can experience some of the world’s best fishing on the Pacific, go surfing at many of the country’s surfing hotspots such as Playa Hermosa, or go snorkeling or scuba diving at one of many beautiful locations around the Caribbean coral reefs. For the more adventurous, you can try white water rafting or kayaking down one of the many rivers throughout the country. My favorite was rafting down the Pacuare River. There is nothing like rafting through intense rapids while being surrounded by a beautiful rainforest!

COSTA RICA/SAN JOSE

In addition to water sports, there are many other outdoor activities to experience. Visit Baldi Hot Springs, a Thermo Mineral Hot Springs Center, or one of the volcanoes that surround San Jose, such as Arenal or Poás. If you like wildlife, you should go visit La Paz Waterfall Gardens, a nature park and wildlife refuge. And lastly, the Monteverde Cloud Forest is a must-see while in Costa Rica. The scenery is breathtaking and you can go zip-lining through the cloud forest. Talk about an amazing experience! Costa Rica has it all and San Jose is an accessible hub to many of these exciting spots around the country! Contributed by: Lori Sparks, CEA Admissions Counselor

After a stop at the home of the Costa Rican symbol, the oxcart, CEA hikes down to a hidden jungle waterfall to swim in cool waters and then relax at the Baldi Hot Springs to watch lava cascade down the side of the volcano.

Manuel Antonio is one of Costa Rica’s most beautiful national parks. The humid tropical forest is home to many species of flora and fauna. Participants watch monkeys, sloths, birds, iguanas, and insects as they enjoy the pristine beaches inside the park.

Puerto Viejo Students learn the intricacies of Costa Rican society and history while enjoying this small town on the Caribbean coast, known for its laid-back atmosphere and AfroCaribbean culture. They explore the streets, which buzz with reggae music, and snorkel in waters teeming with tropical marine life.

Poás Volcano & La Paz Waterfall Gardens Students savor a warm cup of coffee at a plantation before hiking up this active volcano for a closer look. After lunch at La Paz Waterfall Gardens, they wander through the largest butterfly farm in the world.

Immersion Activities* Costa Rican Cooking Class Participants gain a deeper understanding of Costa Rican culture by learning to cook local recipes. They also discover the many different types of fruits and vegetables introduced into the cuisine.

Latin Dance Classes

COSTA RICA/SAN JOSE

Lessons on how to salsa, merengue, cumbia, and swing enable students to dance like a true Tico. Here they may also meet people from the city with whom to practice their new abilities.

Soccer (Fútbol) Students get to know the heart of the people and stay in shape by playing soccer with the locals and attending a soccer game between national or international rivals.

Volunteer Opportunities A great way to improve language skills and build friendships with locals is by lending a helping hand. Students help the community by interacting with children at an orphanage or helping to restore an underprivileged school.

Brighton’s Landmarks At the center of Brighton is the flamboyant Royal Pavilion. The building first came into use as a royal holiday home in the late eighteenth century. Its first transformation took place in the early nineteenth century when a dining room, conservatory, and Indian-style stable block were added. The Prince Regent, who later became George IV, commissioned the architect, John Nash, to create a building more fitting for a king. The result is the opulent, overdone, oriental splendor inside and out that marks the Pavilion today-an example of the excess that caused prim Queen Victoria to repudiate Brighton as the royal holiday home and relocate to the Isle of Wight. The structures that define the look and atmosphere of Brighton’s seafront are the two piers. The West Pier, which opened in 1866, was intended primarily for Victorian middle-class holiday-makers to stroll above the sea and socialize. Once a luxurious monument to the newly established nineteenth century trend of seaside holidays, the pier has been battered by a series of fires and storms over the last few years. The fate of the West Pier has been an on-going subject of controversy in Brighton with original plans to restore it that have now been exchanged for a proposal for an entirely new structure. Its decrepit state, however, has made it a favorite subject of budding photography students in Brighton.

ENGLAND/BRIGHTON 46

Slightly younger than its majestically decaying counterpart, Palace Pier was built in the 1890’s and was one of the last seaside piers to be constructed in England. Conceived in a different era than the West Pier, Palace Pier was created primarily as a center for amusement and entertainment. Like the West Pier, Palace Pier has been subjected to an uncertain fate due to storms, two world wars, and financial difficulties. Once housing an oriental theater and winter garden, the Pier is now, somewhat controversially, a monument to the contemporary pleasures of roller coasters, arcades, and souvenir shops.

Excursions* Oxford

Canterbury & Leeds Castle

Famous the world over as the home of academia, a visit to Oxford includes the delights of the Carfax Tower, the Bodelian Library, the Ashmolean Museum, Christ Church, and even an opportunity to participate in a traditional Oxford pastime, punting on the river.

This two-in-one excursion is steeped in history with a landscape that is lovely beyond description. Canterbury, inhabited since before the days of Christ, is the site of St. Thomas Becket’s grave. Leeds Castle, built in 1119, has been home to royalty for nearly 1,000 years.

London 

Bath and Stonehenge

Ask an American friend to ‘pop the hood’ and it is understood; ask an English person the same thing, and they might look at you as if you had just landed from another planet. Spending time abroad not only broadens your horizons, but also your language skills and vocabulary. Different dialects, expressions, and phrases all contribute to the richness of the English language, and London is certainly no exception. This fact is most evident in the wayward accent known as Cockney. To truly be considered Cockney the speaker is supposed to be born “within the sounds of the Bow bells,” or three miles of St. Mary-le-Bow Church in the Cheapside district of London. However, Cockney encompasses more than just one’s origins or the distinct accent - it also has its own set of slang. Known as rhyming slang, it was created by thieves and those afoul of the law to communicate with one another without the authorities knowing what they were saying. To make a Cockney rhyme, the word you want to say is replaced with a word or phrase that sounds similar. As if this weren’t confusing enough, part of the rhyming phrase is dropped so that it becomes a sort of code. For example, “trouble” rhymes with “Rubble,” as in “Barney Rubble”; therefore, instead of saying, “Stay out of trouble,” a Cockney might say, “Stay out of Barney.” See if you can translate this: Well my old china (plates)! Would you Adam (and Eve) it - you’re here in London. Use your plates (of meat) and walk the fields (of wheat) around this wonderful city. But do take care as you cross the frog (and toad) - take a good butcher’s (hook), Isle (of Wight) first, and mind the jam (jars). Also keep an eye out for tea (leaves) who will try and half (inch) your sausage (and mash). If this happens call the grasshoppers on 999, but don’t get into Barney (Rubble) with them, or you’ll end up in rusty (nail)! Though no longer used in everyday speech, Cockney rhymes are a fun look into the history of “English” English. Answer: Well my old mates! Would you believe it - you’re here in London. Use your feet and walk the streets around this wonderful city. But do take care as you cross the road - take a good look, right first, and mind the cars. Also keep an eye out for thieves who will try and pinch your cash. If this happens, call the coppers on 999, but don’t get into trouble with them or you’ll end up in jail.

Student Perspective Overall, it was an amazing experience, through and through. I loved London and hope to go back there for more than three months! There is so much to say… Going abroad is about feeling new things, tasting new food, and learning about people. Although this may seem odd, I learned more facets of American life than I thought I would by going abroad. My advice - don’t forget to study! Somaiah Ahmed 2006 Fall Semester

CEA Students Make Headlines in Aix The CEA French Language & Culture students made headlines in Aix-enProvence, France during the Fall 2006 Semester. The CEA students were welcomed to Aix by their French peers of the Higher National Certificate of Trilingual Secretary Course of Paul Cezanne High School. Many US students studying abroad seek to integrate themselves within their new culture, only to find it a bit more difficult than they imagined to make native friends. In Aix, the students were presented with the opportunity to meet their French counterparts right from the start. Meeting at la Rotonde in the center of Aix, the French and American students were broken up into groups of four, two French and two American students. Hesitant at first to use their language skills, the groups set off on a treasure hunt. Traversing the city, the students located various important sites so the CEA students could become familiar with their new terrain. The bus station, sports facilities, the English language bookstore, and even a local pizza joint were all explored. By the end of the hunt, the students were laughing and talking, like lifelong friends, about the famous French singer whose limo they had seen. Following the treasure hunt, everyone headed to the Tholonet, not far from Mont Sainte Victoire, for a traditional Provençal picnic. They played games created by the French students to improve their language skills. They also sat around talking and enjoying each others company - the American students doing the best they could to explain Beef Jerky in French. The day came to a close with the French students teaching the Americans petanque, a traditional French game, and giving each a small gift to welcome them to Provence. By the end of this enlightening experience on their second day in Aix, students were exchanging contact info and making plans to go shopping. Without a doubt, this was just the beginning of a semester full of new experiences, memories, and friendships that last a lifetime.

Skiing & Snowboarding The Alps

French Alps Services Resident Staff CEA has an experienced and friendly staff in the French Alps to ensure that students have a positive study abroad experience. From academic support to cultural counseling, the staff are available to help students make a smooth transition into the French culture and educational environment.

Patrick Foley - Program Director

The City of Grenoble offers unparalleled access to prime French skiing territory. Catch the bus from the gare-routière to dozens of area resorts that are located 30 minutes to two hours away. Join the ski club at your university for a one time fee (approximately €30) and enjoy the benefits of being a member. Ski lift passes (forfaits) are often cheaper and range between €7 and €14 depending on the location. In addition, excursions to the local resorts are planned. Should you bring your gear or not? • Your skis or snowboard count as one checked bag. • You can inquire about buying used equipment from other students upon your arrival and then sell it before your departure. • How much are you planning to ski or snowboard? If the answer is less than seven times, it is not really worth bringing your own equipment. • Many stores in Grenoble and at the ski resorts rent relatively new gear for the day, week or for the season; a typical rate for one day is €20 to €30. In order to rent for the season, you have to have a French bank account. • Ski season typically starts around mid-November and runs through April; glacier skiing is offered year round at a few high altitude resorts. FRANCE/THE FRENCH ALPS 66

• It could be worth it to bring your ski boots and rent the rest in France. Skiing in Grenoble is truly world class. Get ready to chill out at high altitude and have the ride of your life! Contributed by: Tara Copanas, Year 2004-2005 University of Cincinnati

French Riviera Services Resident Staff CEA has an experienced and friendly staff on the French Riviera to ensure that students have a positive study abroad experience. From academic support to cultural counseling, the staff are available to help students make a smooth transition into the French culture and educational environment.

Kristin Kerr - Program Director

Known throughout the world for its annual international film festival, where movie stars and other celebrities shine, Cannes is probably the most glamorous spot on the French Riviera. Le Festival de Cannes (The Cannes Film Festival) began in 1939 and has since become the “granddaddy of all film festivals” as the Hollywood Reporter phrased it in 2006. This most prestigious event in the industry is renowned not just for the critical role it plays in launching careers and movies, but for defining art in cinema. The festival is held annually for two weeks each May at the Palais des Festivals, with the 61st celebration set to be held May 14 - 25, 2008. Although thousands of films are screened during this time and over 200,000 people flood the event, it is unfortunately predominately reserved for professionals in the film industry and the press. However, due to the film festival as well as Cannes’ charming old town and luxurious sea front, the city is also a year-round holiday playground of the rich and famous, so sightseers shouldn’t be surprised when they bump into the Hugh Grants or the Brad Pitts of this world while visiting! FRANCE/THE FRENCH RIVIERA 72

• MA in German language and Literature from the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis • Has over ten years experience managing study abroad programs • Native of Leipzig, Germany. Fluent in English, German, and French • Also serves as CEA Program Director for Berlin summer programs

Homestay Homestays are typically single or double rooms and are fully furnished with a bed, bed linens, comforter, desk, closet, and shared bathroom facilities. Students are provided with two meals a day, five days per week. This is a great opportunity for students to experience the life of a typical French family.

Staff Perspective

International Business

Here’s what Alexandra Mitchell, CEA Campus Director for Paris, has to say about getting to know the city: The passer-by will be an acquaintance of Paris: You will walk the streets and marvel at the extraordinary architecture, the beauty of the shops, the seemingly endless number of red awning cafés, and the beautiful urban landscaping with mounds of fresh flowers planted as centerpieces at every available intersection. The passer-by who keeps coming back will be friends with Paris: You will have your favorite spots, know the places where people went and the places to be now, and feel comfort in renewing your friendship with parts of the city after each encounter.

FRANCE/PARIS 78

The passer-by who can’t bear the thought of leaving will have a love affair with Paris: After a few hundred shots of espresso and armed with a masterfully black wardrobe, you start to crack open the mystery of the city. You sneak peeks into private and public courtyards, begin to discover what lies behind the ominous and monumental double doors that line the hundreds of city streets, and you realize you’ve begun to understand Paris and the Parisians. Paris cannot be understood in a day, but if you stay long enough, magical things will happen. Take your time in Paris; get to know the city and its people. Only by breathing the air that Parisians breathe, by crossing the Seine river over historic bridges four times a day, and by eating the same crusty bread, stinky cheese, and devilish sweets as the Parisians do will you truly know Paris. So come to CEA in Paris armed with ambition, excitement, and wonder!

Kissing the Blarney Stone

Cork Services Resident Staff CEA has an experienced and friendly staff in Cork to ensure that students have a positive study abroad experience. From academic support to cultural counseling, the staff are available to help students make a smooth transition into the Irish culture and educational environment.

Avril Hutch - Program Director • Current History PhD candidate at University College Cork Experiencing Southwest Ireland is not complete without a trip to Blarney, located about six miles northwest of Cork. The world famous Blarney Stone is situated high up in the battlements of Blarney Castle. Follow one of the long stone spiral staircases up to the top and enjoy the spectacular views of the lush green Irish countryside, Blarney House, and the Village of Blarney. The stone is believed to be half of the Stone of Scones which originally belonged to Scotland. Scottish Kings were crowned over the stone, because it was believed to have special powers. The stone was given to Cormac McCarthy by Robert the Bruce in 1314 in return for his support in the Battle of Bannockburn.

IRELAND/CORK 92

Queen Elizabeth I wanted Irish chiefs to agree to occupy their own lands under title from her. Cormac McCarthy, the Lord of Blarney, handled every royal request with subtle diplomacy, promising loyalty to the Queen without “giving in”. Elizabeth proclaimed that McCarthy was giving her “a lot of Blarney”, thus giving rise to the legend.

The CEA GlobalCampus Rome serves as students’ gateway to the exciting blend of history, modern politics, and business that drives this famous city. A dynamic program of stimulating courses and firsthand activities helps students to experience the international nature of the Eternal City to its fullest and to evaluate critically the ever-changing range of intercultural and political impulses the city has generated since classical antiquity. For example, active learning provides students the opportunity to: • Discuss defense-related issues with some of Rome’s top government and EU officials • Debate post-war Italian culture and institutions after visits to Rome’s immigrant communities, places of religious worship, and ethnic markets • Retrace the steps of the inauguration parade of the Renaissance popes to discover how pomp and procession influenced architecture and urban planning

Excursions* Capri

Siena 

Known as the “Enchanted Island” for its natural beauty, rocky seashores, and scenic charm, this historic haven for the rich and famous beckons students to stroll past the luxury stores of Capri town or take a boat tour of the famous Blue Grotto.

Participants wander through cobblestoned streets in this medieval city. Highlights include the Gothic cathedral, city hall, and the Campo Square, home to the Palio Race and arguably one of Italy’s most beautiful piazzas.

Ostia Antica

Tivoli

Ostia Antica was Rome’s main port for 600 years. Populated by Romans, immigrants, sailors, and slaves, this town was an important point of defense and trade. One can visualize the daily life of ancient Romans through the ruins of shops, baths, restaurants, temples, and apartments.

Once a holiday resort for Roman aristocrats, students visit two of Tivoli’s famous villas, Villa D’Este, containing 40 elaborate fountains, and Villa Adriana, an extravagant villa destroyed during the fall of the Roman Empire.

Immersion Activities* Italian Cooking Class During this cooking class, students learn how to create different Italian dishes utilizing traditional fresh ingredients, how to mix and match recipes, as well as serving etiquette.

Opera Night A night at the opera is an unforgettable experience. Some amazing performances CEA students may see are Puccini’s ‘Tosca’, Mascagnai’s ‘Cavalleria Rusticana’ or Rossini’s ‘Barber of Seville’, or a ballet such as ‘Sleeping Beauty’ or ‘Swan Lake’. ITALY/ROME

The Catacombs Students appreciate the opportunity to see the ancient graveyards of the Christians of early Rome. There are secrets to discover around every corner of the twenty-plus miles of underground tunnels.

Wine Tasting Class Selecting and savoring Italian wine is an art that participants explore all components of, including the grapes, serving glasses, and food to complement wine.

Student Perspective CEA is a very, very organized program. Being an organized person myself, it was nice to have a program keep up with you. They were helpful and willing to answer and serve every question I had. I would personally recommend Guadalajara, Mexico because it is a beautiful city that is easy to navigate and is a clean and safe city. My only advice is be prepared to spend money on public transportation and phone cards if you choose to get a Mexican phone. Other than that, I had a WONDERFUL experience, and I would/will/am recommending CEA to everyone.

Community Volunteer Program

Guadalajara Services Resident Staff CEA has an experienced and friendly staff in Guadalajara to ensure that students have a positive study abroad experience. From academic support to cultural counseling, the staff are available to help students make a smooth transition into the Mexican culture and educational environment.

Cassandra Peacock - Program Director CEA Guadalajara’s “Community Volunteer Program” was developed for students seeking opportunities to become involved in enriching and self-rewarding tasks while directly interacting with the Mexican community. This program was designed as part of our cultural and immersion activities complementing students stay in Guadalajara. Participation in this program helps to expand social contacts among Mexicans that have the same interests, facilitates the practice of language skills in a proactive manner, and helps one develop a deeper understanding of Mexico and its people. Best of all, the volunteer options that are offered have been organized to fit in with student class schedules. DIF (Desarrollo Integral para la Familia) is a government institution that provides tools for community development. CAVIDA is an organization within DIF helping people who are mentally challenged. The goal is to create an environment in which the beneficiaries are motivated while they enjoy workshops specially created for their needs.

MEXICO/GUADALAJARA 114

As a Community Volunteer Program participant, students can sign up for one or more workshops, depending on their interests and available time. Each workshop is five weeks in length and meets once or twice per week. Upon successful completion of the workshop, the participant receives a letter stating that they worked with CAVIDA on a voluntary basis within a Mexican non-profit organization. The letter details the name of the workshop attended and the amount of hours volunteered by the student.

So, don’t be shy, take that first step and ask about becoming a volunteer!

Krakow Local Secrets Here are some interesting facts that give an inside edge on life in Krakow.

Bugler King Every hour on the hour almost without interruption for the past seven hundred years, a bugle is played from the top of St. Mary’s Church tower. It has been transmitted by Polish Radio at midday, every day, since 1927. Those who listen closely notice that the tune seems to stop suddenly in mid note. This is in keeping with the legend, when the bugler was struck down as he sounded the alarm to warn inhabitants of the Tartar invasion in 1241.

Blast from the Past Bystanders step back in time and immerse themselves in pre-war Kazimierz. Situated in the middle of ancient Szeroka square, Restaurant Alef has managed to recreate the feeling of days gone by, through original pre-war décor, turn-of-the-century antiques, and carefully selected Jewish klezmer music. Stephen Spielberg frequented this café during the making of “Schindler’s List.” It is suggested to sample some great Jewish cuisine before exploring the nearby Remuh Synagogue and Cemetery, founded in 1553.

Wadowice - Birthplace of Pope John-Paul II

POLAND/KRAKOW 118

Born in 1920 as Karol Józef Wojtyła, the future Pontiff lived in Wadowice, a small town located 30 miles southwest of Krakow, until 1938 when he moved to Krakow to study at Jagiellonian University. He resided at 10 Tyniecka Street, just across from the Grunwaldzki bridge. In Wadowice, visitors can view the church where John Paul was baptized and the apartment where he lived with his family, which has now been turned into a museum.

Staff Perspective

There is no better place to experience 1,000 years of Russian culture and history than the imperial city of St. Petersburg, one of the most spectacular and impressive cities in the world. St. Petersburg has an air of grace and elegance with its huge squares, wide boulevards, pretty canals, and ornate bridges. Its world-class museums, elegant palaces, and stunning architecture are second-to-none, while its lively arts, café, music scene, and vibrant student nightlife keep participants busy throughout the program. July is one of the nicest times of the year, when it is generally warm and sunny, with very long days and very short nights. There is so much to see and do here that students may not get a lot of sleep, but I am confident they will have the time of their lives in St. Petersburg, cultural capital of Russia!

• Because of St. Petersburg’s northerly location, it stays light outside almost all night in late June and early July. This period is known as the “white nights.” • St. Petersburg is one of Russia’s most important centers for education, scientific research, industry and trade. • The second largest city in Russia after Moscow, St. Petersburg is also the country’s largest port and spreads over numerous islands along the Neva River and out to the Gulf of Finland. Known in Russian as “The City on 101 Islands.” • The central government of the USSR introduced reforms that encouraged greater democratization and openness that lead to the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. St. Petersburg came into its own once again, resuming its role as Russia’s window on the West.

How Alicante Got Its Name

Alicante Services Resident Staff CEA has an experienced and friendly staff in Alicante to ensure that students have a positive study abroad experience. From academic support to cultural counseling, the staff are available to help students make a smooth transition into the Spanish culture and educational environment.

Alvaro Sanchez - Program Director

There is a legend about Alicante and the origin of its name. The legend says that during the time of Moorish rule there was a beautiful Arab princess named Cántara. She had two suitors, Alí and Babá, who both wanted to marry her. Cántara’s father gave each of them a task; the one who accomplished their task first would marry his beloved daughter. Alí was to build a drainage system in Alicante and Babá was to bring many jewels from India to the beautiful Cántara. Babá was the one to succeed and was deemed the winner of the hand of the princess by her father. However, Cántara was in love with Alí. When she heard the sad news that she had to marry Babá, Cántara decided to throw herself off of the walls of Santa Barbara Castle. When Alí heard of Cántara’s death, he also threw himself from the same place. In his grief, her father made a carving of his own face on the cliffs in memory of the fatal events. SPAIN/ALICANTE 126

The legend says that the name Alicante comes from the love between Alí and Cántara - Alicantara Alicante. From the beach of Postiguet, to the left side of the castle, sightseers can see the face of Cántara’s father carved in the rock.

Volunteer & Make a Difference Students studying abroad can make a difference in the lives of others. CEA Granada offers a number of volunteer opportunities and students who have participated in these have found volunteering to be an extremely rich and rewarding part of their study abroad experience. CEA students have lent a helping hand in the following areas: • Children: Volunteers take care of children, help them in different activities, and cover their needs during their time at nursery school. • Young people: Volunteers helps young boys and girls (typically seven to 15 years old) with homework and prepare leisure and sports activities for them. • Homeless: Groups of volunteers go out to the streets offering the homeless hot chocolate or coffee, something to eat, and a pleasant chat. This allows them to break the communication barrier and to detect other serious problems. Volunteers also offer information about public and private institutions which offer assistance. • Elderly: Volunteers visit the elderly in their homes or at a center to offer them friendly conversation or to go for a walk. The aim is to offer the person some company and give their family members a break from their care. • Disabled: Volunteers carry out accompaniment services and collaborate in workshops. • Health: Volunteers offer their help in this field carrying out accompaniment services to the hospital for patients suffering from cancer, Parkinson’s, eating disorders, and kidney failure.

La Alhambra

Granada Services Resident Staff CEA has an experienced and friendly staff in Granada to ensure that students have a positive study abroad experience. From academic support to cultural counseling, the staff are available to help students make a smooth transition into the Spanish culture and educational environment.

Nestled on a hill at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, the Alhambra has watched over the city of Granada since the 9th century. Considered to be Spain’s most important architectural monument, it is an expansive castle that housed Granada’s rulers for more than six centuries. It was originally built as a fortress, strategically placed to overlook the valley below, and its name, Alhambra, actually comes from an Arabic word meaning “red fort.” The original structure, however, was expanded through centuries of different rulers, lending to a fascinating blend of contrasting architectural styles found throughout the complex. Today, the Alhambra is made up of three distinct sections: Palacios Nazaríes (Royal Palace or Nasrid Palaces), the Gardens of the Generalife, and the Alcazaba, which is the original fortress. The Alcazaba, the oldest and perhaps most primitive of the three sections, boasts the most spectacular views of the mountains, city, and outlaying valley below. The Generalife offers tranquil gardens filled with shaded walkways, patios, fountains, flowers, and lush vegetation. The Palacio Nazaríes, however, is the architectural highlight of the entire structure. Made up of a complex series of rooms and courtyards, its ceilings feature finely knotted wood and elaborate honeycombed stucco, while the walls are intricately carved with Arabic poetry and scripture or are beautifully tiled in ceramic mosaics. The patios incorporate water, an important element in Arab culture, in beautiful fountains and reflecting pools. SPAIN/GRANADA

The Alhambra must be experienced firsthand to truly understand the impact of its beauty. It has been said that those who can only visit one monument in Spain should make it the Alhambra. A single visit can make anyone find themselves promising to return again someday.

The Art Boulevard

Madrid Services Resident Staff CEA has an experienced and friendly staff in Madrid to ensure that students have a positive study abroad experience. From academic support to cultural counseling, the staff are available to help students make a smooth transition into the Spanish culture and educational environment.

Silvia Martinez - Program Director Madrid’s Paseo del Prado has been dubbed the Art Boulevard. It is an art lover’s paradise where three of the city’s top museums reside. For a mere €7.65 (about $10) visitors can buy a combined entry ticket to view all the treasures these galleries hold. Second only to the Louvre in Paris, the Museo del Prado contains one of the world’s finest collections of art, largely Spanish and European. The Prado has held royal collections and works by artists such as Velázquez, Goya, and El Greco. Spain’s history leaps off every canvas while strolling through its many corridors. A few hours should be allocated to meander through its impressive collection. For modern Spanish art that truly reflects the contemporary culture of the past 100 years, the Centro de Arte Reina Sofía is an ideal museum to visit. From Catalonian Modernism to Picasso’s famous Guernica and through the surrealist landscapes of over 20 of Dalí’s canvases, everyone enjoys the remarkable works housed in what was once an 18th century hospital.

SPAIN/MADRID 148

Across from the Prado rests another priceless collection of art. While lacking a specific genre or movement, works found in the halls of the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza are a lesson in art history altogether. From medieval religious art to avant-garde and pop art, this museum holds many famous names including Cézanne, Gris, and many others.

Academic Institutions

The Legend of La Rana

University of Salamanca • Recognized by the Spanish Ministry of Education as a degree granting institution of higher learning • Official transcript issued by the University of Salamanca • Courses instructed through Cursos Internacionales as well as different departments of the University of Salamanca • Founded in 1218, the oldest and most prestigious university in Spain with a very reputable program for international students • Student population of 30,000 with an international student population of 7,000 • University services include a university ID, Wi-Fi, computer labs, libraries, student health care services, various dining facilities, and sports facilities

Every city has its own legends and folklore that make it special, and Salamanca is no exception. The legend of la Rana (the frog) is popular among university students throughout Spain. This bit of superstition surrounding the University of Salamanca stems from a small frog carved into the facade of the 16th century main university building, on the opposite side of the Plaza Anaya. It is perched among hundreds of intricate carvings and can be quite difficult to find. Rumor has it that luck will find those who are able to spot it, because as the legend goes: the ones who find la Rana are sure to have success on their exams. Even better, those who find la Rana unaided will return to Salamanca in the future. What better luck could a student ask for?!

As a provider of international education, CEA feels it is important for parents to have confidence in knowing their children are studying with a reputable organization that places top priority on quality experiences and the well-being of each student.

SERVICE & SUPPORT Each student has a personal CEA advisor at every step in the process to guarantee attentive and customized service. These advisors provide students and parents with valuable guidance regarding credit transfer, safety, cross-cultural insight, financial aid, student visas, course registration, and more. Information is available via telephone, email, online chat, mailed packets, and the MyCEA Account, the CEA interactive website which furnishes program details specific to each student. Once participants are abroad, CEA Resident staff is available 24 hours a day for emergencies, and hold regular office hours. Program participants also benefit from the amenities offered through the CEA Value Package (learn more on page 8).

HE A LT H & SA FE T Y CEA’s main priority is to monitor the health and safety of students abroad. Each program destination is staffed by trained and dedicated professionals to ensure students have easy access to support at all times. HTH Worldwide Insurance provides students with comprehensive medical coverage, and the CEA Health and Safety Committee proactively monitors and analyzes the safety and political climate of all destination countries and their neighbors. The CEA Emergency Response Plan ensures that US and overseas staff maintain clear communication with students, parents, universities, and embassies in times of emergency.

ACADEMICS CEA provides a variety of programs to fit students’ academic needs and interests. To that end, CEA has engaged in the following initiatives: • The CEA GlobalCampus Network continues to be expanded, which promotes hands-on learning and engages students both in and out of the classroom. • CEA subjects itself to a stringent academic quality control and assessment process to oversee academic development and course creation. • CEA’s team of Regional Consultants are dedicated to working with over 1,000 schools in the US and Canada and CEA has partnered with over 150 colleges and universities; these relationships ease the course approval process and help facilitate credit transfer.

Dear Parents, We at CEA understand the role that parents play in their child’s decision to study abroad, and we invite you to contact a CEA advisor to discuss your questions or concerns at any time. Our goal for you, as a parent, is to have complete confidence in knowing that your child is studying abroad with a reputable organization that has the utmost concern for the safety and welfare, as well as the quality of instruction and support of your student. More than 13,000 students over the course of CEA’s 10 year history have taken the opportunity to experience the life-changing effect studying abroad with CEA has to offer. CEA has emerged as a leader in the study abroad field because we listen to the changing needs of students and university faculty, are involved in a variety of professional and academic organizations, and have an uncompromising commitment to the student experience. The entire CEA team stands ready to assist you and your student. We thank you for entrusting these valuable and rewarding experiences to CEA. Sincerely, The CEA Team

Qualit y Control & Assessment Process QUALIT Y CONTROL In line with its gradual development of stand-alone sites for study abroad programs, CEA has been actively expanding its internal academic staff, structures, and controls. This process is guided by CEA’s Chief Academic Officer, Dr. Geoffrey Bannister. The Quality Control and Assessment Process Program’s two principal elements are as follows: • CEA’s Quality Assessment Council - the internal control system of CEA • Control systems of the University of New Haven (UNH), the official University of Record for the CEA GlobalCampus Network

ASSESSMENT PROCESS CEA has a hierarchy of positions to oversee the academic operations of the CEA GlobalCampus Network and other sites. The academic structure and general qualifications of the academic managers have been approved by UNH in a process designed to replicate a traditional university’s structure.

“CEA’s organizational strengths, marketing capacities and student responsiveness provide a good complement to the academic strengths of UNH. We are especially excited about the future for the CEA GlobalCampus Network, where our active partnership is focused.” Dr. Steven Kaplan President of the University of New Haven

In addition to these academic appointments, CEA’s Assessment Council is made up of experienced study abroad professionals who are responsible for overseeing CEA’s participation in self-assessment. Council members are also involved in site visits overseas to assess program quality. CEA’s Assessment Council is chaired by Dr. Angi Yucas, Study Abroad Director at the University of Pittsburgh. CEA regularly conducts assessments of its programs and is nationally respected for its intense attention to customer service. Student course evaluations are compiled and used regularly. All courses designed for the CEA GlobalCampus Network have specific learning objectives as well as assessment systems to match those objectives.

To learn more about the CEA and UNH partnership, contact CEA at: Info@GoWithCEA.com 800-266-4441

ASSESSMENT BY UNH UNH sets the principal academic policies for CEA programs and oversees all faculty appointments, curricula, and academic matters. Site visits by UNH faculty and administration are scheduled regularly. The frequent reviews conducted by CEA’s Quality Assessment Council are available to UNH as a means to ensure that the programs meet UNH’s high standards.

UNH maintains critical control of the academic appointments process, not only for CEA faculty, but also for the Deans and the Chief Academic Officer positions.

CE A High School Programs

[ Live | Learn | Explore ] For 10 years, CEA has provided college students with the opportunity to explore and experience the amazing diversity and cultural understanding that is made possible through studying abroad. CEA is now proud to extend the same focus on quality and academics to a new generation of high school students.

E XPA NDING HORIZONS

MAKING THE GR ADE

The global connectivity that today’s youth experience on a daily basis through television, internet, and other media is unprecedented. Students are connected to their international peers with accessibility that was unimaginable when CEA was founded. The incorporation of global themes into students’ core curriculum becomes more and more imperative with each passing day. Therefore, a student’s path toward acquiring international competencies isn’t something that begins in college. To this endeavor, CEA has created programs for high school students as a commitment to creating international education opportunities that expand the horizons for the next generation of learners.

All students who successfully complete their program will receive a transcript from CEA’s GlobalCampus University of Record, the University of New Haven, which is accredited by The Commission on Higher Education of the New England Association for Schools and Colleges (CIHE/ NEASC). Aside from the myriad of benefits obtained from the study abroad experience, students also gain credits which can be applied toward their college career.

LE ARNING THROUGH EXPERIENCE CEA high school programs are designed to focus on language acquisition and cultural immersion. Students are immersed in the culture of the host country not only through academic instruction, but also through housing with local families and participation in a variety of social and cultural activities in the host community. Experiential learning and immersion is also enhanced by the CEA GlobalCampus Network facilities which utilize the host cities as classrooms. CEA provides global education opportunities that resonate with today’s interactive learners and provides opportunities that will foster students’ interest becoming lifelong learners and conscious global citizens.

Coming Soon to CE A

CEA is excited to share some of the areas in present development to meet the ever growing and changing student demand.

NE W DE S TINATIONS In response to a call for true global education and in order to provide students and US partners with a well-rounded portfolio of offerings, CEA will be expanding its programs in non-traditional locations in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. India, South Africa, Peru, and Chile are just a few of the new destinations CEA is considering for the academic year 2008/2009.

E XPA NSION OF CURREN T DE S T IN AT IONS Responding to student demand for additional programs in popular destinations, CEA is diversifying the number and type of programs within the CEA GlobalCampus Network and enhancing the existing network with additional centers. In addition, CEA is partnering with new universities. In the upcoming year, look for expanded offerings in destinations that have proven very popular, such as Germany, the Czech Republic, China, and the Englishspeaking world.

DISCIPLINES Looking towards the future, many of today’s students have an interest in disciplines that have been underrepresented in study abroad. To fill this need, CEA is developing programs in the fields of engineering and sciences, health studies, business, and criminal justice.

NE W INIT IAT IV E S Global Studies, Service Learning, and a “green curriculum” are just a few of the initiatives CEA will embark on this year. The focus will be to provide better opportunities for students’ participation in a global world by shaping curriculum around areas which emphasize global studies, social responsibility, and service.


YOU ARE RE ADY TO APPLY It’s time to embark on a study abroad journey by beginning the application process! CEA Advisors stand ready to assist with the following steps:

Check Eligibility All CEA programs require that students are at least 18 years of age and are high school graduates. Additional requirements vary by location, session, and academic institution, all of which are listed online. Review Transfer Credit Processes While most students are able to transfer academic credit from a CEA program back to a home institution, all students should discuss their plans with a study abroad office representative and academic advisor. Study abroad policies and procedures differ at each university. Consider Financing Options Many students use federal financial aid, student loans, scholarships or other types of funding to help pay their study abroad program fee. For assistance in financing study abroad, take advantage of CEA’s Student Finance Coordinator, online financial resources, and CEA Scholarships. Review CEA Policies When students apply to CEA, they also agree to all CEA policies. Complete the Application CEA will accept the paper application provided on the following pages, but applying online is much quicker and less expensive. Submit Required Application Materials Required materials vary by program, but general items include a $95 non-refundable application fee ($75 for online applications), and a copy of the most recent official or unofficial transcript. Some programs require additional documents. Applicants for summer programs must also submit a $300 non-refundable confirmation deposit at the time of application.

A P P LY E A R LY Applying well before the program closure date allows students time to find competitively priced airfare, confirm a space in popular programs that may reach capacity early, submit priority housing and course requests, and have plenty of time to obtain a passport and student visa (if necessary). CEA will accept applications 12-15 months before programs begin, so start yours today! Consider Multiple Programs Participating in more than one program is a great way to extend a stay abroad, earn more credits, and receive discounts! Students can combine as many CEA programs as they wish as long as the dates do not conflict. Admissions Counselor can help find possible program combinations. Refer-A-Friend to CEA Those who have friends interested in studying abroad can refer them to CEA and earn rewards! Learn more about each of these steps at www.GoWithCEA.com/HowToApply

Agreement & Release 1. I understand that my participation in a study abroad program (“Program”) organized by CULTURAL EXPERIENCES ABROAD, INC. (“CEA”), an Illinois corporation, 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 Polices, 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 above-described 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 that CEA is not responsible for my safety or acts of third parties, and I agree to release and not hold CEA responsible for any such problems I encounter in a Program. 5. I understand that as a Participant in the Program, I will be residing in housing arranged by CEA. I also understand that during the Program orientation, housing practices will be explained to me and a housing contract will be presented. I agree to abide by the terms of this Agreement and Release as well as any additional agreements or contracts required during the pendency of the program. In particular, and with respect to housing, I acknowledge and understand that I am solely responsible for my own possessions and safety of those possessions and, that CEA is not responsible for theft or burglary of my possessions, nor is CEA responsible for lost or misplaced possessions of mine at any time. I also acknowledge that it is my sole responsibility, relating to my personal possessions, that I inquire from my insurance company, whether any particular property or rental insurance policy I maintain or that are maintained for me, cover my possessions, will be valid in the location of my study abroad program, and if not, that if I wish for my possessions to be insured, that it is my sole responsibility to deal with insurance providers who will cover my possessions in the location of my study abroad program, and it is my sole responsibility to understand, make available, or obtain coverage for my personal possessions in the location of my study abroad program. 6. If I am sick or injured while participating in 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 and 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. 7. I also authorize release to CEA, through my signature below, protected health and mental health records, such release expiring on completion of the Program. By signing below and providing this release, I understand that: • I can revoke this Authorization at any time by giving my written revocation to the Disclosing Provider/Covered Entity.

• A photostatic copy of this document shall have the same effect as the original of same. Authorization to release health and mental health records does not create an affirmative duty or obligation for CEA to do a background check of Applicant as Applicant remains obligated to be honest and forthright, and not omit or misrepresent information requested. 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 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 understand it provides insurance coverage for my benefit while in the Program, including 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. 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.
