Clases de Conversacion en la UAM

RAMIRO SARABIA- It’s crazy to think that, in less than a month, the Fall semester of my junior year will be over. More than that, I’ll have finished an experience that I once saw taking place in the distant future: studying abroad. As always, I’m back with reflections on my experience thus far in Madrid. […]



NATHANIEL TRAN- My sincerest condolences to anyone who has lost a loved one in the wake of violence across the world in the past week. I don’t only speak to the tragedies that struck Paris, but also in solidarity with the Black young men and women who face violent and oppressive circumstances across the United States, […]

A Love Letter to Madrid

Dear Madrid, When I first met you I thought you were the nicer, less smelly cousin to New York. If it wasn’t for your signs in Spanish I might have thought I was still in the US. I compared you to Philadelphia because you’re small and quaint for a big city. I compared to you […]

Por eso, elegí 5 preguntas interesantes y empecé a preguntar a todos. Pregunté a amigos del programa y de los EE.UU. pero también traté de hablar […]


Trip to Andalusia

This weekend was another incredible adventure in our new home, España. Through the Tufts-Skidmore in Madrid program, we have had the chance to explore other parts of this beautiful country besides Madrid. Earlier in the semester, we took a trip to Spain’s province of Segovia, which gave us a really interesting insight into the country’s […]


Humbling Experiences in Spain

Traveling is a truly humbling experience. Whether it’s a road trip to a neighboring state or an international adventure, the process of packing-leaving-wandering is exhaustive in the most satisfying way. My adventures in Spain have helped remind me of my most basic needs. Between the early morning flights, long train rides, and hours of walking […]



Although I’m known for the occasional FIFA upset, I would definitely not consider myself a very big sports guy. Social media and being friends with people who play sports have helped me always stay semi-knowledgeable on the topic, but, until recently, I probably couldn’t name you more than a few players on each of my […]
