Great time with great friends!

Amazing place to study abroad! The school scheduling is great to allow for as much free time as possible while still learning a lot! Faculty is great and the field trips are so much fun and we learn a lot!

One semester is just enough to change the rest of your life

My experience here in Sorrento with the Sant'Anna program has been one of the most impact and life changing experiences. The program allows you to have an immersive experience not only in Italy but in as much of Europe that you can handle. We are in a great location with an amazing culture. I would recommend this to program to any one who would listen!

Gaining independence and discovering myself in a foreign city

When I made the decision to come to Sorrento, one of my objectives was to seize every opportunity and, as I call it, "live deliberately." Being abroad humbles you and triggers a curiosity not only about where you are but who you are. When we are at home, we take for granted the ability to travel, to shop, and to communicate. In Italy, navigating public transit, going to the market, and expressing myself in any capacity is a challenge. Having always been an outspoken and outgoing person, I have had to adapt to situations in which I cannot be that person. In doing so, I have already improved my abilities to observe, to listen, and to learn. The skill of adaptation is of value in work environments and in situations when one is out of his or her comfort zone.

Sorrento is an incredible setting for all of this to happen. Not only is it visually stunning but the culture and sense of community is spell-binding. A student has the opportunity to build personal relationships with other students and the residents and community leaders. The people care about each other and want to share their love of life (and pasta). In no time at all, Sorrento has become my second home.

Living in and loving Sorrento

I loved Sorrento, and Sant'Anna. If you prefer a big school with a lot of things to do every night, this is not the school for you. I, however, love small towns and making a few close friends. If you do too, then Sant'Anna is the school for you!
