International Program Alumni | Buenos Aires History
Buenos Aires, Argentina
Buenos Aires was established as the first home stay program. Though students live with various homestay families in this program, there is a central location for them to gather to socialize and hold convocation or house church. Casa Holden, the University-owned facility in Buenos Aires, is located in the embassy district of the city. It houses a student center with sofas and cable T.V., an auditorium, and a computer lab connected to the Internet. This facility also contains the visiting faculty's living quarters as well as the program office. There is a swimming pool and BBQ in the backyard. The Casa is near public transportation including bus and subway.
Adjacent to Casa Holden is another Pepperdine facility, Casa Olleros, where students will take their classes. Casa Olleros features the Patagonia Library, four classrooms (Pampa, Cuyo, Noroeste and Mesopotamia), and a large study area on the bottom floor.
