  • “The Nebbish in the Bull Ring, or Woody Allen in Madrid”

    Jonathan Blitzer in Madrid

    Jonathan Blitzer explores what it is like to be a foreigner abroad. What happens to Americans in Spain? What does the country mean to them - and what do we seem to mean to Spaniards? The days of Hemingway are over. American bluster has softened in Iberia. The Sun Also Rises makes way for Leaving the Atocha Station. The Bush years have rebranded American brawn, and the expat intellectual has new bonafides to prove. Spain is a strangely compelling proving ground. We’ll start in Madrid and end in Oviedo, where Woody Allen is enbronzed for all to see.

    Expanded Language Tables: Greek, Korean and Swahili


    We are pleased to announce three new language tables for the semester. Whether you are fluent in the language, have traveled to a country where the language is spoken or are simply curious about the language and culture, all are welcome to join in conversation over a meal for the remainder of the semester.

    Language tables are an excellent opportunity for students to maintain and refine their language skills in a social setting.

    11 Million Project


    The 11 Million Project is an on-going series of events that aims to raise awareness about the need for comprehensive immigration reform. 11 Million refers to the estimated number of undocumented persons currently living in the United States. This student-initiative grew out of a winter study travel course on the US-Mexico border.
