In April, students from Maryville College spent two weeks in Greece enjoying breathtaking views, touring museums, and analyzing sculptures and many great pieces of architecture from the height of the Greek civilization.

Through guided visits, independent explorations, organized events, and personal interviews students were exposed to Greek culture from antiquity to the modern day.

We had such an amazing experience. There is no doubt that CEPA is providing top-notch service in value and activities. Professional, flexible, adaptable, and very personable – throughout (initial contact, planning, pre-arrangements, and during).  CEPA representatives were so accommodating to me, as a first time organizer and the program went so smoothly!!

Thank you for all the work that you have done at your end to make this happen! I’m super excited to start planning for 2021.

CEPA celebrating its 100th study abroad group for 2017 from Davenport University

This June we are proud to celebrate the arrival of a group from Davenport University as our 100th study abroad group for 2017 with many more to come. We are happy to share this special moment with them.

The group arrived on June 3rd in Milan with 14 students and their faculty leaders. They were greeted with a “100th group” cake as a small surprise by their CEPA on-site coordinator, Morena.

During their “European Business and Culture Program” the group explores the heart of Europe by visiting 6 countries in 3 weeks. The program includes corporate visits to companies and institutions, such as Ducati Motorcycles in Bologna, a Swiss bank in Zurich, the European Parliament in Strasbourg as well as a broad range of cultural excursions.

We are proud to mention that Davenport University and CEPA have been running business programs throughout Europe for 10 years now and that we are honored to have this long-standing relationship with our partners at Davenport University.

faculty-led programs during fall break

Deciding on the dates for a faculty-led program in Europe can be a very difficult if not the most challenging decision of the development process. There is definitely no “one size fits all” and academic, financial, and cultural factors must all be considered.

Why you should plan your faculty-led program during the fall break:

* Pleasant weather
Autumn in Europe can be just beautiful! It may not be beach weather, but it’s pretty much perfect for a cultural visit.

* Fewer growds and shorter lines
In late-September the crowds start to thin out. It is much easier to appreciate a city’s attractions and to soak-in the local way of life.

* Local festivals
There are many small cultural and historic festivals dedicated to local history, music, art, handicrafts, food, and traditions. Attending such an event is a great opportunity to meet locals, interact with them, and learn more about their culture.

* Cheaper flights and better room rates
By the end of August, Fall pricing begins and fares drop for the less expensive season.
