This summer, CSU-Pueblo students traveled to Todos Santos, México as part of a study abroad program led by Dr. Danilo León.
While in this beautiful area of Mexico, our students were able to participate in several cultural activities such as: visits to a local university campus, an organic farm, museums, churches, a local cemetery, a middle school and several gorgeous beaches such as Playa Balandra, Playa El Chileno and Cabo San Lucas.
They also participated in cooking classes and walking tours while meeting local people. This was a true cultural immersion experience for our Thunderwolves. In Todos Santos, students stay at the CSU-Todos Santos Center.
“Mexico has been one of my best experiences. The entire trip was incredible. It gave me an opportunity to not only better understand how others live but to be fully immersed in such a rich culture. It made me feel more connected to my roots and the world. From the food to the beaches, I was always ecstatic. Dr. León organized a safe, enjoyable experience that will forever be memorable. I now feel more well-rounded in my studies from my time spent there. Please go if you have an opportunity – you won’t regret it!”Ryley Henninger, Todos Santos Program 2019
Before traveling to Mexico, students learn about the Mexican culture as part of SPN130 (Intro to Spanish-speaking cultures, Mexico) which allows students to earn 3 Gen Ed credits. This program will run again in the Summer of 2020 from May 25th to June 13th (June 7th-13th in México) and we hope that more and more CSU-Pueblo students get interested in traveling and learning about this amazing part of the world.
