Summer Program in Puebla, Mexico

Hotel Colonial
The Wichita State University Summer Program in Puebla, Mexico provides an excellent opportunity for students, teachers and other interested individuals to study the Spanish language, to gain the invaluable experience of living in another country and to earn college credit toward a degree or teacher certification. Students in the program spend six weeks in Puebla -- either in the Hotel Colonial, or in a private home with a Mexican family, or both. During their stay they attend daily conversation, Spanish literature, culture, or grammar classes taught by Wichita State faculty and local Mexican conversation directors. There are also ample opportunities for students to visit nearby points of interest, including Mexico City in the interior and other historic sites. Now in its 54th year, this well-organized and well-established program allows people of all ages to enjoy a unique and rewarding educational experience.  Students from any WSU college and other institutions are encouraged to participate as well.  Students from other institutions are charged the same fees as WSU students.
