DG Travelers: Katie Moore

Katie Moore (NMC '09 and former vp: finance) is spending her semester abroad in Alicante, Spain. This beautiful, beach city is located south of Barcelona on the Mediterranean coast.

The city is home to many college students, as well as a large Spanish-speaking population. When Katie first arrived, she had difficulty communicating, but after completing an intensive two-week Spanish course, she is now finding it easier to understand the locals.

Katie is participating in a homestay with her "madre," Juana Maria. Through her program, Katie has had the chance to meet many new people, including a DG sister from Bucknell University.

Katie, who is a finance major, is studying with 21 other American students. They have been walking their way through several Spanish sites, including a castle in Alicante and to the top of a huge coastal rock in the village of Calpe.

If you would like to read more about Katie's Spanish travels and studies, check out her blog:
