Immersion opportunities in Xalapa could include getting involved in extracurricular activities on campus, spending time doing memorable activities with host family, and/or getting involved with a group in the local community that shares your interests or helps you develop new interests.

As a BCA student, you will have many options for becoming involved in the Mexican community. The university sports facility is open to all BCA students. You’ll find dozens of sports and clubs that students can join, from ultimate frisbee to the student orchestra. Students in the past have also participated in salsa lessons and cooking classes, volunteer conversation groups and community garden projects.  In addition, Xalapa is a great place to learn a new musical instrument, such as the Jarana (a special type of guitar)!

Why immersion?
