I learned how to be independent beyond what I already knew. It was worthwhile! - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Things like gaining a new perspective and having a global mindset did come, without me realizing, but that is also such a small part of what it means to study abroad. And the cheesy saying how you learn so much about yourself happened too, but there is a sort of dark matter in studying abroad, like in space that takes up 95% of... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
It was worthwhile. I gained alot of insight on the culture and Italy and got to experience a different lifestyle. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Yes. I've always wanted to study in Italy, and my experience was unforgettable and unique. There are some things that I would have liked to change, but that is the case with any program that you do. I am more independent and cultured because of it. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Yes, only thing wrong was the drama that the other students wanted to partake in. Sometimes it felt a little like being in a small high school. I tried my best to avoid the drama but could have done even better by making plans with people I met during the program and trying to do something worthwhile in the city every day. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Past Review Art In Italy!
Although I didn't get much out of the language aspect of it, it was still an amazing experience. I loved the Accademia Italiana and the location of the workshops. My apartment was in the center of Florence and I was able to access different places by walking. It taught me to be more independent, and how to live with other stu... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Studying abroad was (as cliche as this sounds) the best experience of my life. there is literally nothing like it. You have the opportunity to put a hold on "real world" stresses and responsibilities and let yourself become part of this other world. planning ahead of time made me feel comfortable and confident that all my ducks ... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I learned more about myself, my passions, and my capabilities in these short 5 months than I have in my entire life. Being on your own in a new country not only helps you develop a new outlook on life, but also gives you a new sense of confidence that you may not have known that you had. - Ohio State University - Columbus View Entire Review

I developed into a cultured being, medium level art junkie, full blown food addict, and most importantly transformed from obnoxious tourist to picture-taking traveler embracing all types of scenery. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I learned how to be more independent and how to adapt to different cultures. DEFINITELY worth it. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
It was very worthwhile. I learned the language, how to get around different language and culture barriers, and how to deal with people in different ways. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
responsibility, independence, everything. Definitely worthwhile, just a great experience - Villanova University View Entire Review
absolutely. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I loved everything about study abroad, I learned how to live on my own in a strange city, how to converse and befriend people that I don't know or share cultural similarities with, and I learned a lot about the beautiful art and history of Italy. - DePauw University View Entire Review
Loved every minute. Made amazing friends. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

It was well worthwhile. I feel more independent and knowledegable about the world than ever before. I wish I could do it all again! - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
