Invigorating. Intriguing. Inspiring. In a nutshell, that is how I would describe Suffolk University Madrid Campus. The academic setting of Suffolk Madrid is unique in that it provides a European perspective on an American curriculum. In addition, the pride and passion of the professors really show through, and they genuinely want each student to succeed. The faculty creates a fun learning environment not only on campus, but also on course-related excursions. One of my favorite field trips was with my Art History class, in which we explored the Roman ruins and artifacts of the ancient village of Segóbriga, only an hour from Madrid. Suffolk Madrid has provided me with the perfect educational experience to grow academically and personally, and I never want to leave! Samah, Major: International Affairs

Coming to Madrid has been one of the greatest experiences of my life. After being here for only two semesters, I feel like a different person. I see the world with a brand new pair of eyes. Aside from the ability to travel all around Europe on the weekends, I’m learning a lot from just being in Madrid. I live in a wonderful residence with eight other girls, and it’s been amazing to live and study among so much diversity. Picking up the language is relatively easy if you apply yourself. I would not hesitate to tell any prospective student that they’d be making the best decision of their lives by coming here! Kelia, Major: International Affairs

Spending my freshman year in Madrid has been an incredible experience. I never imagined going to college in another country, but now I can’t imagine it being any different. I felt at home in Madrid right away, and I’ve learned so much both in and out of the classroom. There are so many fascinating things to see and interesting people to meet that every day is as exciting as the last. The staff at Suffolk Madrid does a great job supporting us and making sure we all get the most out of our time here, and my host family has been invaluable in teaching me the culture and language of this fantastic country. Suffolk Madrid is definitely the opportunity of a lifetime. Cameron, Major: College of Arts & Sciences, Open

Deciding to spend my freshman year of college at Suffolk Madrid was one of the best decisions I have made. The thought of spending a whole year in Spain was daunting at first, but once I got to Suffolk Madrid and met the staff and other students I realized it was not scary anymore. Everyone made me feel so welcome and I made friends and memories that will last a lifetime. Suffolk Madrid has become a second home to me. This city and Suffolk Madrid will always have a place in my heart. I cannot wait to return as a sophomore. Dassi, Major: Psychology

Studying at SUMC is an amazing experience for anyone who wants to gain a more global perspective and try new things. Living with a host family not only helps you to learn Spanish, but it is the best way to really get a feel for what it is like to live in Spain. The staff at SUMC is very helpful and friendly. Because it is such a small campus, it feels more like a giant family. I was shocked to find that most of the staff knew my name in less than a week of my being here, and the students that go to SUMC are equally as friendly and welcoming. I was planning on only staying here for a semester but after a month of being here I can’t imagine leaving, and am now coming back next year as well. Madrid has become my home and the people at Suffolk my family. Sarah, Major: International Affairs

Having dreamt of coming to Madrid since I was six years old, studying at Suffolk Madrid was the perfect opportunity. Suffolk Madrid has offered me the chance of a lifetime to live in Madrid and immerse myself in the Spanish culture. With the language exchanges, host families, interactive activities and excursions, everyone can have an incredible experience getting to know the ins and outs of the Spanish culture and lifestyle. Coming here with a little bit of fear of a new place is okay—you're not going to have it for very long. The staff and students are incredibly helpful and welcoming. Suffolk Madrid makes the experience of living in a new country more than worth it. Matthew, Major: Spanish
