Not what was expected

This program turned out to only have four people in it during the term I was here. The weather is very cold and rainy, and most of my teachers did not speak english very well. The classes ended up being very demanding and there is very little time given for travel. Absences are not acceptable. The administration was polite, but didn't seem to want to help very much. Siena is a very wonderful city, but it is very difficult to travel out of since there is no airport or fast trains. Any travel needs to be out of Florence or Pisa which require around 10 euros one way. I requested to live with students on my program and my roomate ended up being a forty two year old Italian woman who hardly spoke any english. This was difficult since I did not know any Italian. The excursions were ok, but nothing amazing. I think the people make the trip and there were only three other people which made it very difficult. The winter usually has few Italian university students as well as few other abroad students. The only redeeming quality this program has is the head director in Siena as well as the city it is in. If you plan on doing a lot of travel this is probably not the program for you. The city is also very expensive so a couple of groceries will definitely cost you.

AHA is a great program that gives students opportunity to study abroad safely but still immersed

I'd recommend it because I learned a lot + I got to learn the culture + immersed but going through a program was good because they support you.

Everyone was great. Better than an exchange with no support.
