Study Abroad Student Stories

CEPA Study Abroad Blogs & Co

Blogs are a great way to keep in contact with friends, family and professors, who can follow along with their program and are a wonderful way for your group to reflect on the time spent abroad. 

If you are interested in setting up a program blog for your group and don't know where to start, we will be happy to assist. Please contact your CEPA program manager.

We welcome your creativity!
