Overall Experience
I grew in so much confidence in Italian and in my Art History knowledge and passion. My professors were so affirming and my friends were so encouraging. I also have decided that living in another country is in my possibility and that I would actually enjoy it maybe more than living in America. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
A knowledge of a different culture and cultural norms (and appreciation for the food and language). An understanding of what makes me comfortable and uncomfortable in a new environment. Flexibility. It was absolutely worthwhile. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I learned to take things as they come and enjoy every moment of life. It was definitely worthwhile. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
