All students of the CASA-Sevilla program stay with Sevillian families, who not only provide them with accommodation and meals, but also welcome them as a member. Being part of a family helps students to understand in depth cultural, historical and artistic aspects of Spanish society. This experience also allows them to better understand and appreciate the special connection of families with their neighborhoods, and in turn enrich their perception of the city.

In addition to the experience of living with a local family, as part of the Beyond Stereotypes course, professors assign short research projects carried out through conversations about family life and activities and visits in the neighborhood.
