An American In Paris

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience studying abroad in Paris with CEA. The staff at the CEA study center were excellent, if a bit disorganized at times. I didn't spend a lot of time at the study center because I was in one of the immersion programs but they were a great resource to have. I liked the foyer that I stayed in because of its proximity to the Cours de civilisation française de la Sorbonne campus. In addition, there were other international students and french students and it was great to be able to interact with them.
Academically, I think my time at the Sorbonne was incredibly helpful in improving my french. I only wish that the university had more young people as opposed to older students who had moved to Paris and needed to learn French. In additionally, there were a lot of Americans at the school so it wasn't really a complete immersion. Immersion in Paris is truly what you make of it. A large amount of people in Paris speak English so you can definitely get by without speaking French if you wanted to. However, just being in France and seeing and hearing French around you at all times was the most beneficial part of the program.

Life-changing

Studying in Rome was the best decision I've ever made. I love the culture food and the friends I've made. However some of the cultural norms make me miss America. Some of the staff had really disorganized classes that were hard to keep on track with. Besides these setbacks, the program was great and fun. Thanks!

Unforgettable

My experience with CEA was one of absolute gratitude. I felt so thankful not only to have the opportunity to go abroad, but for such a hands-on and helpful program where I was surrounded by caring teachers and administration that ensured that I got the most out of my experience in Rome, both academically and throughout my travels.

Wonderful CEA study abroad experience

My study abroad experience in Rome, Italy is quite indescribable - but, I'll try my best to articulate it. It's just tons of emotions compiled into 4 short, sweet months. Rome is a beautiful and fun place to spend a semester. Around every corner, not only do you find buildings and churches that are many years older than us, but gelaterias galore. The food is simply amazing - if you are into pasta and pizza...but who isn't. Even though classes could get stressful at times, I just reminded myself that I was in EUROPE. Yes, homesickness came in waves, but now as the end of the semester is approaching, I'm reminiscing on how amazing I've had it abroad. CEA has been a great help for me - I bombarded them with a million questions before coming abroad and they answered everything relatively quickly. They even included some classes into our tuition, like a delicious and informative pasta making class and a unique clay making class. This program was also very safety cautious. Before every weekend, they sent out a poll asking if you were traveling that weekend. If you were, they proceeded to ask questions about flight information and where we were staying, so in case anything were to happen, they could reach us.

I also took two courses at John Cabot University. I enjoyed this greatly because I felt very immersed with the local Italian students. The downside was that I lived in Prati, about a 35 minute walk from this school - but hey, the walk sure benefited me after eating pasta more than I should have.

Even though this is common advice: embrace every moment; it'll be gone before you know it. Enjoy :)

Rome study abroad experience

I really enjoyed the company that I had while abroad and have some amazing traveling experiences. Unfortunately I was not very impressed with the CEA program staff. They were strict and treated us like children many times. Many of the professors were a bit scatterbrained and often left the class unsure of what was expected of them and the due dates unclear. While my overall experience was great, I was not thrilled with the CEA program as a whole.
