Meet the CETCA Team
Get to know the 2022 CET Campus Ambassadors (CETCAs)! Connect with these program alumni and learn about their experiences abroad—chat about classroom environments, local roommates, or even what it was like to intern in another country. There’s no better way to learn about studying abroad than to strike up a conversation with someone who has been there.
“My summer in Taiwan was so amazing, and I could definitely imagine seeing myself here in the future! Everything from the people I met, the friends I made, and (of course) the delicious food will always have a special place in my heart.” Contact Wendy >
“After visiting my brother abroad a few years ago, I had a hazy expectation of what studying abroad would be — new places, new friends, growing comfortable in a new city. After spending a semester in Florence, I can safely say that all of my expectations were met and exceeded. The most magical thing about Florence is that, while it is undeniably metropolitan, it’s also incredibly small, which means it’s easy to explore every corner and really feel like it’s your home away from home. Florentines are also the kindest conversationalists — I’ve become friends with local shop owners, baristas, cafe-goers and restauranteurs, because they really do make an effort to get to know the local abroad students and help them understand Florentine culture. My greatest challenge abroad has been striking a balance — on any given day, I want to be meeting locals, trying new foods, scoping out museums, popping into shops, spending time with my new study abroad friends, catching up on work in a coffee shop, sightseeing in nearby cities…. I just wish I had more time here to do it all.” Contact Jenna >
“As someone who stumbled across CET Prague, I can easily say that choosing this program was the best decision I have ever made. CET really helped us all to create a home away from home, helping us to cultivate lifelong friendships and to become comfortable in the city.” Contact Isabella >
“Being abroad with CET Prague was the best semester yet. I made such amazing friends while exploring all sorts of places in Prague, the Czech Republic, and Europe. The program helped me gain a cultural understanding of Prague that I am extremely thankful for and has made me more confident in entering the world after college”. Contact Erica >
“My semester with CET Colombia was one of the best decisions I could have done for myself. I spent my semester learning about the rich and diverse Afro-Colombian culture. The best parts of my days were the field visits we took that really made our coursework come to life. I had deep and meaningful conversations around race, ethnicity, and nationality while engaging in cross-cultural activities! I overcame my fear of speaking in Spanish and learned so much about the language and its people. I have forever broadened my horizons linguistically and culturally with plenty of good food along the way.” Contact Jermoyah >
