From Program Alumni:
"My experience studying abroad was an amazing one that I will remember for the rest of my life. While in Italy, I explored several amazing cities, learned a new language, met some interesting people, and made lifelong friends. But most importantly Italy taught me that everything in life can be beautiful!"
"I'm a shy person who decided to take a chance by studying abroad without knowing anyone on the program, and it was the best decision of my life. I met great friends, amazing professors, had delicious gelato, and got to see the most incredible sights."Courses Offered:
