EKU Spanish Student

I am very thankful for the opportunity I had to study abroad this summer. It opened my eyes to so many possibilities that are available to students here at EKU, and it transformed the direction of my higher education.

Chandlar T., SPA

Studying abroad was one of the most amazing things I could have ever done. I learned so much about the culture, the food, and the language. I lived with a host family, it was a mother and her daughter and they were so sweet. They helped in any way they could to make my roommate and my stay as welcoming as possible.

Floyd O., SPA Major

The goal of SEMIA is to provide accessible healthcare to immigrants and non-English speakers, as well as raising awareness for the rights of these individuals.
