I love Ecuador. I love Quito. I am doing everything in my power to spend time there next year (I am graduating).
I love my host family. I went to see my host brother that lives in Austin over winter break. I got to talk to my host Mom and the phone and I just wanted to be back there. I miss being abroad so much.

The Quito Language & Liberal Arts Program immerses students in the cultural and ecological diversity of the northern Andean country of Ecuador, through direct enrollment in university coursework and all-inclusive excursions throughout the country.
The program features a guided excursion to the Galápagos Islands and an excursion to the Amazon rainforest, two trips to the famous Otavalo Indian market, a guided tour of the colonial architecture of Quito, and other day trips.
Students in this program are considered full-time undergraduates at the Universidad San Francisco de Quito (USFQ), a modern private university located in the valley town of Cumbayá, on the outskirts of Quito. Students have access to the full curriculum at Universidad San Francisco de Quito (USFQ) and enroll in five to six semester-long courses in the liberal arts and sciences. Some students will also have the opportunity to participate in a local community service affiliation for two credits.
