Hello from the SPI Study Abroad Team! Summer 2018 has officially begun — we hope you’re getting excited for the unforgettable adventures, new friendships, and priceless memories that a summer immersion brings! This is a life changing experience that will not only open your eyes to the world around you but will make you grow linguistically, culturally and most importantly, personally.
Here are some ways you can begin preparing for your experience:
1)Familiarize yourself with the student orientation portal. Here you’ll find an copies of orientation and program materials — orientation guide, standards of conduct and our orientation videos!
2)Look over your Student & Parent Orientation Guide. This booklet will help prepare you for everything you need to know — whether you’re curious about cell phone usage while abroad, how to pack for the weather in your program city, or just want to get a better idea of what your homestay experience will be like, the Orientation Guide is chock-full of super useful info!
3) Review the pre-departure emails you have received over the course of the year — they have lots of helpful tips on how to prepare!
4) Connect with SPI on social media! We’re @spistudyabroad on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. We’ll be posting throughout your program!
5) Finally, when you are ready to start posting about your upcoming trip, don’t forget to use the hashtags #spistudyabroad and #myspistory
We can’t wait to meet you this summer!
