Student Life in Mexico: 

The CGE campus in Mexico is a 15-minute walk from downtown Cuernavaca and the main city plaza, in the neighborhood of San Antón. CGE is well established in San Antón and has many friends and close connections in the neighborhood, including some of the homestay families. CGE is located at the top of one of the large ravines that runs through the city, offering a dramatic view from the nearby bridge that leads to downtown. Because of the ravine, there is a 100 foot waterfall right in the neighborhood, a local eco-tourist attraction. Right across the bridge, students will find a large public garden/park, an independent movie theater, the Cathedral, and several popular cafés. CGE-Mexico’s campus includes ample living and study space for students, a library, computer labs and wireless internet, kitchen and dining areas, and outdoor patios and gardens. The Universal language school, where students take Spanish courses, conveniently is located right up the street and has a swimming pool and racquetball court.

Pre-Session Spanish
Students who would like to gain some basic Spanish or brush up on their Spanish can take additional Spanish classes before the semester begins by making arrangements directly with our partner language school in Cuernavaca, Mexico. We particularly advise students who have little or no Spanish or plan to register for an internship to travel to the region early to take Spanish classes.
