Here's what KSC graduate Ron Schilb said about his second experience in Seville:
"I studied abroad in the Spring of 1999 in the CCIS program, Seville, Spain. I took advantage of every minute. Every chance I had, I toured through Spain. I was like reborn. I also got to study at the University of Sevilla. All my classes were in Spanish. I was completely engrossed in the language which I wanted. I rarely hung out with the Americans. I made very close friends with the Spaniards. The program was great. I became fluent in the language in a short period of time. I was at an advantage over everyone else. This was my second study abroad experience. I knew what I wanted to do and how to do it. This first time I studied abroad, I stayed in my room and hung out with the Americans. I learned no Spanish. By engrossing myself in the language and culture, I became a Spaniard. This was the best experience of my life.
It was such a life-moving experience that I told myself that when I graduate, I will move to Spain. So in the fall of 2000, I moved there and stayed with a family who took me in as their own and I consider them to be my true other family. I eventually got work teaching English in small academy. I rented an apartment as well. I then did what many Westerners have a very hard time doing, I got my residency card and work visa. With this I was able to buy a truck and purchase an apartment. I had everything I ever dreamed of. I eventually sold my apartment and moved back to the US because I wanted to teach in public schools. I now teach middle school Spanish. All my experience in Spain is owed to the study abroad program at KSC. If I never studied abroad at KSC, I would have never known Spain and the wonderful family and people that I have met. It was the best experience of my life."
