At UAB, I was exposed to a plethora of new, exciting cultures and formed strong bonds with people from many backgrounds. I loved every second and the stories will never be forgotten. Without a doubt, this experience changed my life.

Christopher Kallah UC Los Angeles Psychology Spain

The classes at PUC were incredible because they were about Latin America and taught by Latin Americans. I took a political science class taught by an influential figure in Chilean feminist politics. The fact that the classes transferred to my degree made it even better. Best of all, I had the opportunity to live in a welcoming society and witness real-time change in Chilean politics – it was an amazing experience.
