“Among the other countries I considered, Chile seemed the best option from an academic point of view and about the touristic destination”

 My degree is in multidisciplinary studies, covering history, Spanish and psychology. I come from Texas A & M International University and I’m currently studying at the Universidad del Bío Bío in the city of Chillán.

 I chose Chile because Latin America has always called my attention. Among the other countries I considered, Chile seemed the best option from an academic point of view and about the touristic destinations.

 The Universidad del Bío Bío is an excellent option, because of the educational level is the same as my university in the United States. The teachers are very accessible and are always willing to work with students.

 On another note, my classmates and Chilean people in general are what I like the most about my exchange. I traveled to other countries in Latin America and in no other place I’ve been welcomed as in Chile.

 At the moment I’ve visited Santiago, Concepción, Iquique and Chillán.
