This summer, fifteen students participated in the Princeton in Argentina program based in Buenos Aires. Students took either SPA 207 or SPA 342/LAS342 as well as explored the city through walking tours, museum visits and other cultural excursions.

Students in SPA 207 also had the opportunity to volunteer with Pecohue, a community-based project led by Hospital Tobar García at Universidad de Buenos Aires, Agronomía. For five weeks, students volunteered at an organic gardening cooperative aimed at promoting the integration and socialization of at-risk youth.
