Academic Year in Spain Group Visits Andalusia
February 14, 2013
The Hamilton College Academic Year (or semester) in Spain began its spring semester in Madrid by traveling to Andalusia in southern Spain. Over five days, HCAYS students from Hamilton, Colby, Scripps, Swarthmore and Williams visited Seville, Granada and Córdoba. The group enjoyed the history, the gastronomy and flamenco music of one of Spain’s most fascinating and evocative regions.
The students, along with Professor Cecilia Hwangpo and Academic Affairs Coordinator Pedro Pérez Leal, visited one of Seville’s landmarks--Spain Square, the heart of the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929 and the setting for films such as Lawrence of Arabia and Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.
