The program is run through our partner organization, ISEP. ISEP is the world's largest network of universities cooperating to provide international education experiences for their students.
Accommodations are arranged with carefully selected host families. In general only one student is placed per family; in all cases, you will have your own room. Your host family will provide you three meals a day.
Past participants report that the informal learning with their family was as important as their classwork to their academic experience. In the words of a past student, "I was so glad to live with a host family rather than in a hotel or dorm. It was a great cultural experience."

Students in Chile often meet friends through their host families. Other ways students have gotten involved are by joining gyms, taking dance or cooking classes, and attending events at the university.
In the past, the summer program has included three extra academic activities:
- Two Valparaíso city tours
- Language exchange meetings with Chilean students
- 2 other excursions to be determined
"Chile was one of the biggest challenges of my life so far, but also the best decision I ever made. I came back with a Chilean accent, lot's of close friends from Chile, real connections in over a dozen different countries, and memories to last a lifetime." - Jessica Fall 2010
During the program students participate in two city tours of Valparaíso, excursions to other notable Chilean cities, and language exchange sessions with Chilean students.
