Program Reviews:
Alexis Nicole Hernandez, Summer 2013 Participant
I learned that although you may be set on one area of social work, study abroad gives you the opportunity to have a little “taste” of everything. There are areas I never thought I would be interested in, but after this program I would definitely consider them! I also learned that before studying abroad I had my own perception of what Italy should look like and how the people are. Some of my assumptions were correct however I learned a lot more about Italy by really being there then just thinking what it would be like.

Glenda Hernandez, Summer 2013 Participant
I think the most helpful advice for future students is to remember that not every nation around the world is like the US and that life is not carried on the way we it is here. Being respectul of the host country, being open to differences and new experiences, remembering to relax and just enjoying the time(because it goes by fast, would be my best advice.

My favorite part of his experience was meeting students from the University there! I was able to interact with them on a personal level and I learned so much from them! I now have new friends all the way in Italy!
