SAI Programs Reviews
Semester abroad at Florence University of the Arts
Submitted by Danielle Moffa - Indiana University of Pennsylvania | December 30, 2016
The program that SAI provided while abroad in Florence Italy, could not have been more amazing. They were with you through everything. From the beginning SAI made sure that you were gathering all the materials that you needed to begin your adventure abroad. They provided more than enough information on how to obtain it all as well as they were there to answer any questions. SAI was more than welcoming when I landed in Florence. They had shuttles there to pick us up from the airport and drop us off at our apartments throughout the city.
SAI planned all these excursions and different activities that we could participate in. We took trips to Tuscany and Maremma as well as participated in a book making class. We went on a bike hike through Tuscany too. SAI was there for everything that you would need and I would not have had the experience I did without SAI.
Be adventurous, it will be worth it in the end

My time abroad was everything that I dreamed of and more. I was able to experience the real Italian culture for four months. In the beginning stages of planning my time abroad it was very overwhelming but once I found that SAI was the program that was right for me, the planning was simple. They gave pre-departure information and information for myself and my family while I was abroad. They made the planning process a lot less stressful.
While I was abroad SAI was helpful and made the experience that much more fun. They had activities planned for the students to attend if they chose to. I took advantage of all of the events. One of the events included an Italian soccer game. They made my experience that much more interesting and exciting. If I had the chance to do it all over again, I would change nothing!
Best experience of my life!

Studying abroad was truly the best experience of my life. From immersing myself into the culture of Rome, to being able to easily (and cheaply!) travel all around Europe, and to finding some of my best friends, I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I was so happy to have the program coordinators of SAI to help me deal with day to day questions and overall experience. From helping me call a cab to go to the airport, to assisting in anything at any time of the day, I knew I could always count on them.

Abroad: the true definition of a once in a lifetime experience
Submitted by Adam Tynan - Muhlenberg College | November 15, 2016
I studied abroad in the fall of 2015 through SAI in Florence, Italy. It was absolutely a once in a lifetime experience. SAI helped me every step of the way from settling in, to taking us on trips across Italy. If I had any problems abroad the SAI Florence staff of Regan, Pietro, and Alessandra were there for anything I needed. Also, in Florence I participated in the SAI Global Leadership Program. In that program I was able to volunteer all over florence with organizations such as the Tuscan Cancer Society and UNICEF. SAI gave me the opportunity to gain a different and better experience than the average abroad student in Florence. I am extremely grateful I was able to study abroad with SAI, I would recommend them 10 times out of 10.
A semester surrounded by beauty

My semester abroad with SAI programs was one filled with happiness, adventure, great food, and friendly people. The SAI staff was so helpful and welcoming and made me feel comfortable to ask questions any time I needed help. The extra curricular programs they held were a good way to meet people and immerse yourself in the amazing Italian culture.
