NOTE: the St. Lawrence Program in Spain can observe only Spanish holidays and vacation periods. It is expected that the family and friends of the students adhere to this calendar and limit their visits to Spain to the announced vacation periods (Christmas and Easter). Visits while class is in session, during exam periods and during excursions disrupt the student's routine and the normal flow of program activities. Please refer to the General Information and Norms of Behavior regarding unexcused absences and how they affect final grades. Although the dates of the excursions are reasonably firm, unforeseen circumstances may force a change in any given excursion once the semester is under way. Also, since the areas of the country and/or the cities visited often vary from year to year, they will be announced at the beginning of each semester, and not beforehand. Therefore, you should not rely on hearsay regarding destinations.
