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."

Today Ron Schilb teaches 7th and 8th grade at Monadnock Regional Middle School.
