My time in Spoleto

Never have I ever felt more at home so far away from everything I know. Spoleto study abroad was an experience I wish I could experience over and over again. From the classes, to the staff, to the food, to the beauty of the town, and to the life long friends I made. Thank you Spoleto study abroad!

This program was exactly what I hoped from it. I was exposed to a culture completely different than the one I had been living in before and opened my mind to trying new things and experiencing a new way of life. I was finally able to overcome my fear of public speaking through this program and improved my ability to "see instead of look". This program is perfect for anyone wishing to excel in their art and be immersed in a great culture and be able to just see Italy in general.

This is the best educational and growth experience my son has had to this day. The teachers---PHENOMENAL!!! They taught so much more than just writing. They taught appreciation of life and other cultures and experiences. The setting-- UNBELIEVABLY GORGEOUS! The town is friendly and beautiful. The excursions-- FANTASTIC AND FUN!
And, the icing on the cake….my son has gone from a solid B in honors English to a solid A this year. Hooray!

Great program, met people from all over the US and made good friends. Studied voice and instructors were great. Overall great experience. The living quarters were a little old and the showers only had cold water so that is why I gave that a 9. Otherwise incredible experience. Also got to see a lot of Italy.
A once in a lifetime experience

I went to Spoleto and I had the best time! I learned so much about myself and other people. We visited five different cities within Italy: Sienna, Orvieto, Assisi, Florence, and Tivoli. Each location was beautifully, vibrant and each building within the cities had its own historic background. I was really able to immerse myself in the culture and learn so much about the beautiful city of Spoleto. We were able to see an opera, visit churches, beaches, etc. Not only were the excursions very fun, the classes were too. Spoleto Study Abroad offered Italian, arts and ideas, drama, etc. The counselors were super nice and they gave us a chance to tap into our creative side as well as challenge our learning skills. I studied in the field of vocal music while in Spoleto and was able to really improve my technique and learn a lot from a top notch, professional instructor. I also sang in the choir and us singers were able to showcase our skills and sing as a group--that was really fun. I made so many new friendships with the people in and outside my field of study, which was great. I was even able to connect with the counselors because they were caring and very approachable.
Another thing I really enjoyed about the trip was the food! Each Italian dish we were provided with was delicious--the gelato was even better. Aside from the food, I feel that the living spaces were great as well. We stayed in a convent and it was beautiful and spacious (the nuns were very nice, too). Outside the convent, we were able to roam around and really absorb the new community around us. We received free time to relax, shop, and meet different people in the small town of Spoleto. I was really pleased with the friendly atmosphere of the city!
Spoleto Study Abroad is a program where the students are really able to learn a lot about the rich culture of Italy, different fields of study, art, and even more. This program pushed me outside my comfort zone and I'm so blessed and grateful that I was able to be a part of such an amazing experience.
