McKinley Cole, Spanish major

After high school, McKinley Cole followed in her parents by attending Eastern Kentucky University where she majored in Spanish Studies, International Studies, and Public Relations. After her first year, she went on an overseas mission trip through her home church to the Dominican Republic, where she first realized her love of travel and different cultures.

During the spring semester of her sophomore year, she studied abroad in Heredia, Costa Rica with Sol Education Abroad. It was the most influential experience of her college career, so she went back the next spring semester to study with SOL in Granada, Spain. Here she had the opportunity to be immersed in Spanish culture and travel all over Europe. Now, she’s visited a total of 20 countries and her desire to travel is stronger than ever.

Graduating in 2017, McKinley now lives in Austin, TX and works with SOL to help other students have their own awesome experiences abroad. You can find McKinley drinking coffee, reading books or out enjoying the Texas sunshine.
