When you first arrive in a new country, you may initially feel overwhelmed being in a new environment. When I first arrived in Lima, I did not know what to expect, but I knew that I was not alone. EdOdyssey’s one month orientation program served as an amazing starting point to get adjusted to the city, gain more knowledge about Peru, and improve my level of Spanish.
We always save Cusco for the end because at the end of every study abroad semester in Lima because it’s a special way for our local staff at EdOdyssey to wrap up an emotional semester abroad with our students. As a final touch, this past semester our study abroad students took an amazing trip to Cusco and Machu Picchu with Patty, our Peruvian Program Coordinator.

After studying and traveling abroad, I know how it feels to come home and encounter difficulties keeping this vibe alive on campus.
