My name is J Carpenter and I was in Argentina for the spring of my junior year (08). I went through Lexia to Buenos Aires and lived in a homestay. I volunteered weekly in one the poorest areas of the city known as “villas” which was one of my fondest memories of my whole trip. I took classes at the Universidad de Buenos Aires or La UBA. I spent a lot of time traveling within the country and meeting people. Lexia was a great program that gave me freedom while still having a structured and well organized set of events which helped us as students to get to know the Argentine culture.
