Entre Amigos: South Oreagon University exchange students rave about Guanajuato

Share This

Two Amigo Club scholarship recipients, Cynthia Trujillo and Sarah Martinez, have returned full of enthusiasm from a semester attending the University of Guanajuato as Southern Oregon University exchange students.

“There are so many little nuances to the Mexican culture that touched my heart,” Trujillo said in an email interview.

“My many experiences with the friendly, warm, respectful, caring, and laid-back attitude of the Mexican culture were what impressed me the most. And … so much more: the food, music, gatherings, fiestas, parades, dances, colors, flavors, artwork, smells — Mexico is so full of life and ‘culture,’ it’s incredible.”


Trujillo and Martinez attended the university from mid-July through mid-December. They responded recently to questions about their Guanajuato stay.

Martinez lived with a Mexican family that had been hosting students for 30 years.
