Program Reviews:
Christopher W Rice, Summer - Two Months 2015 Participant
Don't get caught up in activities that you can do back home, use your time in the program to try new things. Treat it as an academic experience and not a summer vacation, get to class on time and be prepared, and use your free time to explore the region. Plan ahead for weekend trips to get the most out of your free time. Don't be afraid to explore on your own. Visit the neighborhood stores and bars(not like bars in U.S.)it is the easiest place to practice your Italian language skills and I found the staff very friendly and patient with my attempts to communicate.

Summer - One Month 2012 Participant
Meeting new people and building great friendships with those people. We will forever share the bond of having spent this month together in Italy, and nothing can change that.

Olivia N Lynch, Summer - One Month 2012 Participant
Living with the host family-my host mom was funny, sweet and loved teaching us Italian while we taught her some English as well. It completely immerses you in a culture that is different and unusual, and you learn more than you ever could in a classroom.
