Date: Thursday, February 27th

Time: 12:00-1:00

Location: KMC Lounge- Room 650

Join us for tacos and learn about the Mérida, Mexico program. This exciting info session will be run by Mérida program advisors and a Mérida program alumni, who will offer deep insights into the program. 

Mérida is a cozy, colonial city located about 20 minutes from the coast of Mexico, where they experience 300 days of sunshine per year. Study the rich culture of the Yucatán and learn Spanish in one of Latin America's safest areas. Join cultural events and excursions, including a multi-day excursion to archaeological sites, Mexico City and San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas. Enjoy free evening concerts and a thriving nightlife in a student-friendly atmosphere, and study alongside local students at two outstanding universities.  

Students only need to have completed two years of college-level Spanish to directly enroll in local classes.

The Mérida program is suitable for most majors. Just to name a few: Business, Health Studies, History, International Studies, Political Science, Public Health, and Psychology.
