Our CIEE group reunion, “Re-entry / Reversal shock” was on December 7th. Through numerous activities, we helped the students psychologically prepare for their return home, or at least to begin to think about it. We made lists of pros and cons of the U.S. and Spain, our favorite food that we miss from home, and the people who are most important in our lives .
On December 11st, students took part in the Graduation Ceremony, in which they were each recognized with a semester diploma from the University of Alcalá. We took many photos and ate tapas that Instituto Benjamin Franklin provided.
Final exams were December 17-18th. And on December 18th we also had our farewell lunch.
The time has gone by fast. Now, the only thing we have left to do is to wish you HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND NEW YEAR! Tomorrow our students are going to leave Alcalá. It will be a sad day :(
