Hey:) My name is Diego Queipo Leon (he/him), and I studied abroad in France with the UF in Lille - Engineering & Arts program the summer after my sophomore year (Summer 2022). With the program I was able to take a critical tracking course, Physics 2, while also taking an art class that helped me see the beautiful city of Lille through a different perspective. As it was my first time in Europe, studying abroad allowed me to travel to other countries like Belgium, Italy, Spain, and the Netherlands, and learn so much about them. Not only did I learn more about Francophone culture, I was able to learn more about myself and my identity. Studying abroad gave me the opportunity to meet amazing people that I still talk to to this day, and soooo many unique experiences that I will never forget!!
