When University of Iowa senior Kayla Cemensky was weighing her options for study abroad destinations, she found herself intrigued by Cuba. Intrigued, and a little nervous. Cemensky is taking a course on art and literature during her stay, but after President Barack Obama announced that the United States is restoring diplomatic relations with Cuba after more than 50 years, Cemensky said she expects to learn about more than just culture.



Contest Winners

Every year, International Programs holds photo and video contests for study abroad and international students. This year’s entries took viewers on a journey around the world. We were also able to see Iowa through the eyes of international students, who gave us a fresh perspective of the sights, sounds, and traditions in our own backyard.
