Local Hamilton College Students Spending Semester Abroad in Madrid

More local graduates making their hometowns proud...

CLINTON, NY (03/18/2019)-- The following local residents are participating in Hamilton College's Academic Year (HCAYS) in Madrid, Spain, for the 2019 spring semester:

  • Kayleigh Harris of Centerville (02632). Harris, a junior majoring in foreign languages, is a graduate of Wellesley High School.
  • Casey McAndrews of Vineyard Haven (02568). McAndrews, a junior majoring in biology and Hispanic studies, is a graduate of Marthas Vineyard Regional High School.

HCAYS, now in its 44th session, offers small liberal arts-oriented classes and the opportunity to enroll directly in the Madrid University system. Participants must speak only Spanish at all times, both in and outside of class.

Through personal contact with the culture, language, ideals, and customs of another nation, participants step beyond the familiarity and comforts of their own environment to gain a new perspective on international affairs and a greater respect for and understanding of another people.

The program is directed by Hamilton's Associate Professor of Hispanic Studies Xavier Tubau.

Originally founded in 1793 as the Hamilton-Oneida Academy, Hamilton College offers an open curriculum that gives students the freedom to shape their own liberal arts education within a research- and writing-intensive framework. Hamilton enrolls 1,850 students from 49 states and 49 countries. Additional information about the college can be found at www.hamilton.edu.
