Overall Experience
I learned Arabic and non verbal communication skills and how to figure things out based off of contextualization. I also learned a lot about other cultures. It was worthwhile. - Case Western Reserve University View Entire Review
Past Review :D :D

About

Nestled in the Middle Atlas Mountains, the Province of Ifrane is
home to the largest cedar forest in North Africa and is the most biologically
diverse area in Morocco. Because of the year-round beauty of Ifrane's natural
surroundings, the town's population of 12,000 swells to nearly 100,000 on
weekends, holidays and in the summer. Both Fez, the intellectual capital of
Morocco, and the imperial city of Meknes are approximately an hour away. The
capital city of Rabat is two hours from Ifrane; the Sahara desert is just six.

The AMIDEAST Education Abroad
Program in Ifrane offers a diverse curriculum through direct enrollment at Al
Akhawayn University (AUI), a private Moroccan university patterned on the
American model of higher education. Students on the program will live in
residence halls on the 98-acre AUI campus, which includes modern classroom
buildings and dormitories, as well as a library and IT facilities, sports
facilities, and a student center including dining halls. Before heading to AUI,
students will participate in a 10 day, 15 hour Moroccan Arabic & Culture
(MAC) Program at AMIDEAST in Rabat, Morocco. During their time in Rabat,
students will stay with local host families.
