April 01, 2015 Take Me Back!!
It was a blast! I was lucky enough to have an internship there which helped me extremely! The culture and the lad back ease of life I miss as well as people just assume the best in others over there. It was great meeting friends too because everyone is in the same boat, either you mingle or you are alone. But don't be afraid to ... Krista V - University of Wisconsin - River Falls
I learned SO many things about myself, about the world around me, and about others. It was SO worthwhile and I would never trade my experience for anything in the entire universe. sara.dalan - Illinois State University

I learned that in order to you gain a full experience, you must take risks. Going on this trip was a big risk for me and I definitely think it was worthwhile. I stepped way out of my comfort zone and loved absolutely every second of it. I would give anything to go back! Nicole M - Bentley University
I learned about the history and culture of a place I had only ever seen in textbooks. It was extremely worthwhile. A student - Bentley University
To explain the answer above, I would go to Italy again and do a host family, but I would want to chose a different school and do an actual program (not do it only through Bentley) Stacey R - Bentley University
I learned to appreciate many things in America. Also realizing that there is much more out there than just material things in life. Seeing the world is the best experience anyone will go through. Tyler L - Illinois State University
It's impossible to use words to describe everything I learned while abroad, but I can do my best. First off, I learned how to live independently and share an apartment with other people. I also became a much more savvy traveler, which will help me a lot in the future. More importantly, I learned a lot about myself and what thing... A student - Illinois State University

I had an absolutely amazing time in Italy. I learned so much about the culture and the food, and I visited so many amazing places. I have so many great memories that will last me a lifetime. It may have been expensive, but it was completely worthwhile! A student - Bentley University
I grew up in my eyes and met so many amazing people. It really opens up the world and makes you think about enjoying life a little more sometimes. Kara R - Illinois State University
I grew up a lot and became a lot more independent. I was really homesick at first but once I got over that it was the best experience of my life. Lydia B - Illinois State University

I discovered the culture of a part of Europe I had not yet visited. It was great learning of the similarities and differences in both the language and the culture to other parts of Europe. Definitely worthwhile. There is so much rich history behind Italy. A student - Bentley University

July 08, 2013 Life Changing!
I learned much more about what it is to be a global citizen. In addition, I learned more about my family roots. It was the best experience of my life! A student - Bentley University
I matured, opened up, and really learned a lot about myself while abroad. Going to a completely different place and culture is shocking, scary, and unpredictable and how you respond, react and learn is an amazing experience. A student - Bentley University
Tolerance, Patience, Acceptance, Social skills, an better understanding of american culture, practical skills etc... Taylor G - Illinois State University
I learned how to live. It was more than worthwhile. A student - Illinois State University

I learned alot about the Italian culture, language and lifestyle. I also learned alot more about myself. It was definitely worthwhile A student - Bentley University
It was worth every minute but I would have liked to live with people from a different school. It was difficult to meet people in the classroom because majority of people came with at least three friends and they all took classes together. I was lucky enough to have one friend that I perviously knew and we were able to travel tog... A student - Illinois State University
I found myself through this experience. I learned how to be independent and completely self-sufficient. It was definitely worthwhile. I wish I could do it all over again. A student - Illinois State University


The LdM Florence campus is one of the largest international schools in Italy, located in the historic city center near the famous Duomo Cathedral and next to the bustling San Lorenzo market and church.

Dedicated international professors, small class sizes, and inspiring academic field trips make learning at LdM a distinctive and enriching experience for the individual within the context of an international community. Each city is used as a classroom, with its monuments, artwork, industry, and people serving as invaluable resources. Academic learning is enhanced by the opportunity for personal expression and practical application through interdisciplinary projects and engagement with the professional sector. LdM students have integral roles in conferences, festivals, LdM News and film productions, archaeological digs, restoration projects, fashion shows and other events, complementing the student’s academic experience.
