This is a great way to practice developing Spanish language skills and get a first hand view on Latin American culture outside of the classroom.

The values, lessons, and paradigms that I encountered cannot be learned in a classroom or domestic campus setting, and I feel that it is my responsibility to advocate for others to take advantage of similar opportunities.
Through my completion of this program, I consider it my responsibility to share the positive (even some neutral or negative) aspects of studying abroad through IFSA-Butler.
I was having a lot of medical problems and they all listened, tried to understand, gave me advice when they could, and even accompanied me on my many doctors appointments.
On this note, I must say that the health insurance through CISI really saved me and my family financially.
All of our fees, deposits and any supplemental charges such as meal plans are clearly outlined in our program fees.
IFSA-Butler has awarded millions of dollars in merit- and need-based scholarships over the past five years. We also believe that study abroad should be within the reach of every student, so we offer a wide range of scholarships and financing opportunities for our students.
Through living with a host family, attending a Latin American university of more than 16,000 students, completing four courses in a second language, and traveling to a number of diverse locations around the country, I came to understand what it meant to live and thrive in a foreign setting.We see these extras as a part of the larger academic experience.There are no hidden fees or expenses on an IFSA-Butler program.We had a component that required us to make our own bone tool, but I had difficulties due to my medical condition (which we discussed, she told me not to worry about that component), and although I completed it and brought it to the final to turn in (which no one came to because they had cancelled it without telling me), she still gave me a D for the project.Overall, it was a very bad experience and has been my only C in a class in my entire college career; I wish I would have taken a different class.
