Life in Quito

After orientation, students met their host families and joined them in daily life. Through this key component of SST, students learn about cultural practices, social dynamics, and personal relations.

A few days after orientation, we returned to Centro Histórico to see the Basilica del Voto Nacional and the winged Virgin del Panecillo.

The groups gathered for a photo at Her feet while overlooking the city.Family life is such an important experience for SSTer.

We also focus our attention and energies on academic work, which makes the SST experience richer, super interesting, and challenging… in a good way.
