I wish I had known...
That I needed a visa!! No one told me I had to get a travel Visa, so I got my passport with a visa a week before I was supposed to leave. Talk about stressing me out. Also, if you want to do a lot of travelling, do not take a conventional suitcase!! I was stupid and ended up halling a huge suitcase all over the train stations and ferry boats and subways. There are way to many stairs to be doing that. I definitely recommend a backpack!!! All my friends with backpacks had to watch me in pity as I struggled to make it up all those stairs.

Personal recommendation
The University is beautiful--palm trees, flowers, fountains. You'll meet a lot of people from different countries. Alicante is considered a small town--a few hundred thousand people. It is so much fun during the warmer months because you can enjoy the beach. Night life is a lot of fun too--lots of bars and discotecas if you like to dance. I loved it.

I had an awesome experience. I went totally on my own, without knowing anyone. I made friends with one guy in my class and then made friends with all the people he had come with in his program. I loved Alicante. It is a fun town and the people are generally very friendly. I would recommend it very highly!!!

My recommendation is that students take advantage as much as possible of the facilities the university offers, e.g the gym, trips exchanges with other students etc.

I wished that I would have known more about Alicante. I was the first person from my uni there and I did not know what to expect. I would have like to known it was really cheap to live in apartments.

Alicante is a great place and it is close to Madrid and Barcelona. Be sure to save money and meet people, so that you can visit these cities with them to lower the cost and have fun.

I wish I had known not to bring as much stuff, because it is easy to accumulate more stuff which makes packing to return home very difficult.

Final comments
Studying abroad has been the best experience of my life and I would recommend this program to anybody that would like to improve their Spanish and be fully immersed in Spanish culture. However, it is not all fun and games and students need to expect to work hard. The harder you work to meet new people and experience the culture the more rewarding your experience will be. Therefore, the best advice I can give is to be enthusiastic to try new things and take risks. You have to adjust to living in a new country, because the country is not going to adjust to you.
