Summer 2023 Arrival
This Wednesday is Summer Term Arrival Day. ICS reps will be at the Seville airport for the IB 3950 flight at 12:50 p.m.
Thursday at 10 a.m. will be Orientation for the Summer Term.
This Friday will be the first event of Welcome Week. Meet us at 10 a.m. at the ICS and we will visit Seville's downtown area.
In the evening, students, professors and faculty are all invited to a reception in a nearby restaurant where many kinds of “tapas” are served. It is always a delightful and amusing evening of trying new foods and forging friendships.
Each day of Welcome Weekend has something new and exciting for you. In the morning, you are taken on two different walks downtown where you will be shown some of the most historic sights and monuments Seville has to offer. Friday ́s walk includes a quick stop for a typical Andalusian breakfast of “tostada con café” at a quaint coffee bar just off the main Avenue.
Saturday ́s walk includes a stop for a bite of always delicious “churros” with thick and rich hot chocolate. Each walk is approximately two hours long and you will enjoy not only the lively activity of downtown Seville, but will learn how to move about in your new city.
The ICS night activities are just as entertaining as the morning ones, if not more! You will meet us downtown to see the best Flamenco show in Seville at “El Museo del Baile Flamenco”. It is a night to remember of Flamenco singing, guitar-playing and absolutely mesmerizing dancing!
The next evening we will walk along the river over into the historic neighborhood of Triana and to the Arab Tea Salon of “Bagdad Café” where you will try exotic teas and see and even participate in an exclusive Arabic dancing show.
Sunday is Free Day! Students can advantage to sleep in, discover the city on their own, or make a day trip to any one of the many fascinating and beautiful towns nearby!
Students always love the “Night Walking Tour of Legends and Curiosities of Seville” on Monday night of Welcome Week. This 1 1/2 hour tour is given in English by an agency of local historians who love sharing their city’s secrets with out-of- towners!
On the last day of Welcome Week a whole new view of Seville is given during our Thursday evening cruise down the Guadalquivir river. With lots of food, beverages, and music on board private luxury boats, a relaxing and enjoyable time is guaranteed!
Every semester the ICS organizes these activities for new students and all activities are free of charge.
By the end of Welcome Week you will feel more than welcome in Seville. You will feel at home!

Another chilly day in Florida …another weather-triggered memory brought on by low temperatures, beautiful morning skies, and a penchant for remembering anniversaries of events from the Land of Ago. It’s been 34 years since I last walked out of the apartment in the...
