On September 10th, Arcadia hosted a live webinar to discuss what studying abroad in Cuba is actually like. Arcadia staff, including Resident Director Elena Moreno and Program Manager Carly Gellman, were joined by program alumni Rebecca Acebal, Janelle Crilley, Abigail Taskier, and Casey Weld.
The former Cuba study abroad students took the time to answer questions from other webinar attendees and offered suggestions, advice, and encouragement to students who are considering studying abroad in Cuba. The session also covered topics such as the Arcadia orientation, daily life in Cuba, academics, excursions, challenges, and how the Cuba alumni were able to dispel their preconceived notions about Cuba on Arcadia’s program.
If you couldn't make it to the webinar, we have made a recording of it available on YouTube.
