Student Testimonials


Each day I learned more than the last, it truly changed my life and taught me to think different. You just need to get out there.

Casey Krause, Spain 2017
Biology with Chemistry & Spanish minor

Traveling to Spain was the most incredible experience I have had at Wilkes.  Not only was I able to develop my confidence in the Spanish language, but I was also fully immersed in Spanish culture.  On this trip, I was able to watch the Running of the Bulls, tour Gaudi's famed Sagrada Familia, walk the historic streets of Toledo, watch a sunset over Barcelona, view Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower, and see the Tour de France.  I would highly recommend this program to any student who wants to expand their knowledge of Spanish language or culture, or who simply wants an adventure!

PharmD concentration in Spanish

Studying abroad in Spain was a remarkably life changing experience. The opportunity to be immersed in the culture, traditions, and food that I had learned about countless times in textbooks was indescribable. I learned so much about the country, the language, and myself, and I would do it again in a heartbeat!
