- Living like an university student of Lima
Experience going to one of the most prestigious universities of the country (PUCP University), meeting new friends, and living with a peruvian family. In PUCP university you have a wide variety of classes you can take, depending on your personal and profesional interests. Some of the classes our students chose are these.
This is the campus’ web page: http://www.pucp.edu.pe. This campus is known by being one of the most pretty campus of the city, take a walk across it here and hear the opinions of our spring LA students about it here. We also prepared a video of a day in the life of a PUCP student in Lima, watch it here.
2. Outdoor and cultural activities
On weekends, we offer our students options of cultural and outdoor activities. For example, an experiential peruvian music class and experiencing adventure sports outside Lima are some of the options. Here you can watch the latest trip to sail on the pacific ocean and swim with sealions, and in this video you can watch the peruvian cuisine class, shared with students of Spelman College. A trip to the great city of Cusco is also included!
On the last week of your stay in Lima, we offer a farewell coctail with families included. This time, some of our students got the chance to go on stage and sing a farewell song. On the other hand, one of the students couldn’t make it to the event but she sent a farewell video for all of her friends. It has a very nice message, watch it here.
3. Experience the peculiar culture of Lima and Peru
There are some special aspects that make Lima and Peru interesting to experience. For example, the transportation system in Lima is a challenge for most of the newly arrived. Opinions and some insights of the transport in Lima here.
