Over its 30 years, the long-established Semester in Spain program has attracted more than 3,000 students from 250 participating colleges.

Caitlin McCarthy '09 of Byron Center, Michigan, attended the Semester in Spain program in Spring '07.

"I was nervous about going over there without having previously taken any Spanish classes," said McCarthy. "My professor, Salva, was patient with our class of beginners. I was amazed that I learned Spanish by being taught in Spanish and was astounded by how much I knew by the end of the semester."

Andrea Dieleman '08 of Grand Rapids, Michigan, also enjoyed Trinity's Semester in Spain last spring.

"Everything about my semester abroad was incredible; the culture, the classes, and our homestays. I wish I could go back," said Dieleman.

Trinity hopes many more students will benefit from these opportunities to explore God's world and enjoy experiential learning in these global classrooms.
