Outstanding Semester Abroad

My semester abroad was the most amazing experience of my life. I was fortunate enough to meet family members for the first time and get to know them. I traveled all over Italy, went to London, Switzerland, and the French Riviera. I have learned so much about myself as well as the culture in which I spent 5 months. Once my semester was over, I stayed in Tuscany for a month and a half spending time with my aunt and uncle in a very small town learning everything about the Italian culture that I did not experience in Florence. I would recommend studying abroad for anyone who is given the opportunity. It was absolutely worth it.

Academics:
Attending school was not difficult to manage with all the traveling that my friends and I did. My classes were fun and interesting about relayed over to my home university!

Living Situation:
I lived in an extended-stay hotel and loved the location! I was very close to the center of the city and could walk anywhere that I needed or wanted to go.

Cultural Immersion:
It was very easy for me to immerse myself into the culture. I loved my experience in Italy and plan to return very soon.

Program Administration:
I had wonderful program administration members working with me. There was never a time when I could not reach the two people that I spoke to most. They were a lot of help and I still keep in touch with them today!
