Beautiful views

Very beautiful place, couldn't of asked for more of a stunning view while I studied abroad. Everything is very well put together at Sant'Anna. If you are apart of SAI, the only thing I would do differently is not using the phone plan that is recommended by them. It did not work once and they charged me way more than I signed up for. I recommend getting a phone plan in Sorrento at one of the local phone services, it is very cheap and works perfectly! But, overall great experience at the school and the professors and are very friendly, funny and helpful!

Excellent

For someone who started with this program to immerse myself in the language and culture while I gained some work experience, everything has been great. My host family is wonderful and always helps me lift my Italian skill level from proficient to fluent. My internship has been everything I have put into it so far. However, it has been very open ended in terms of my jobs and responsibilities and I'm currently working to tailor it more to getting the experience I hoped to before I leave. I was surprised by how many students are in the program but not studying the language primarily or interning. My social life in terms of the other students has slightly suffered as I have had to work on a lot of days that students were taking class field trips to Pompeii and Naples. It's no fault of Sant'Anna though. It's just the fact that my internship and school schedule differed mightily than the rest of the students (who also live together in the dorms rather than with a family like I am) and that has shown in my found necessity to put an effort into socializing with the other students. Overall, I have still managed to make some great new friends and my Italian has taken a huge advancement through the comforts of my homestay and my excellent internship opportunities. I also know every other student here has had the experience of a lifetime.

Unbelievable experience

In just three short weeks I have felt at home here in Sorrento. The culture and the atmosphere is one that makes you fall in love right away. As for the class that I am taking, the professor makes the class enjoyable each day and truly allows for our opinions to be shared. This experience has been a dream come true and one day I hope to come back to Sorrento to experience it all over again.

Sorrento session II

The faculty, rooms, views, and location are all wonderful. The kitchen situation and trip planning are not so wonderful. I have had a truly amazing time here in Sorrento, but the dorm living situation can be a bear. It is difficult due to the shared kitchen space and how the kitchens are divided up. Also, we get little support from the dorm supervisor and my interactions with her have been quite negative.

Summer on the Italian coast, Sorrento

Sorrento is an amazing town. Even when I go else where in Italy I am always excited to come back to Sorrento. The university location is incredible and the dorms are really nice (with incredible views). The convenience of walking down from the dorms to the classes is awesome. I absolutely would recommend this trip and this university.
