Summer 2017 Participant
The culture between CIMBA students and locals is not great. There was no effort to integrate us into the town until the last few days. The town was just over 2000 people, had two restaurants, and one cafe. And the food on campus is from a cafeteria, similar to my elementary school quality food.

Meredith Rose Wegner, Fall 2015 Participant
We had many outside of the classroom learning opportunities. We were able to have three formal dinners where we learned about Italian etiquette and enjoyed local Italian meals. Another opportunity came when we attended company tours. I visited one of the largest gold factories in Italy and got a tour from the owner.

Timothy R Newberry, Summer 2015 Participant
My favorite part of the CIMBA program was the traveling experience I gained from my time abroad. Being able to travel to four different cities in just four weeks while at the same time completing six credit hours towards my degree is an experience I will never forget.
