CEDEI's Department of International Programs is currently hosting two study abroad groups: Spring Semester and the Spring Education Program.  These groups have come to Ecuador to continue their university studies and, in parallel, learn about different aspects of Latin American culture.
 
This week the Spring Semester students began the second phase of their program of study in Cuenca, after returning from their trip to the Galapagos.  Their agenda for this week will include a tour of the straw hat factory and tropical dance classes.
 
The Spring Education students continue with student teaching at CEDEI School, which will greatly enrich their professional lives. They will visit another local school this week and go to the Pumapungo Museum.  This weekend they'll go hiking in Cajas National Park, located a few kilometers from the center of Cuenca.
