Message from Lauren Keenan in Barcelona

Lauren KeenanLauren Keenan has posted this message on our International Programs and Services Facebook page about the great time she’s having in Spain with our Michigan Tech faculty-led program:

“My Study Abroad to Barcelona has taught me how to understand how history and memories influence culture. In addition, I have learned to apply the observations in film, literature, politics, and everyday life to fully comprehend how a city shapes you. This is why we need humanities, they challenge us to think critically in a way we never have before. No one fully understands the importance of studying abroad until you’ve had the experience yourself.”
