Overall Experience
I gained a lot of social skills and courage to try new things. - Villanova University View Entire Review
The experience was definitely worthwhile. Arcadia gave me a chance to have a true Italian experience. The administration was very helpful and the classes were interesting and informative. Each class also has an excursion to different cities which is a huge plus! - Villanova University View Entire Review
I learned above all else about myself. - Villanova University View Entire Review
Deciding to study abroad is a decision I will never regret. Italian culture is very different from American culture. Because I wasn't in love with Rome, I tried to travel on the weekends and see new places. I made it my own experience and learned so much more than if I had just stayed in Italy. Studying abroad helped me see the ... - Bucknell University View Entire Review
It was so so so worth it. I would do it all over again a million times. I loved the food, and the city, and all of the people I met were amazing. I learned how to live in a completely different city that is unlike my own in America, I had to make so many adjustments (language, diet, transportation, living with strangers). - Arcadia University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Arcadia: Rome - Arcadia in Rome
I made a lot of great american friends while abroad, as well as experienced what it would be like to live in a foreign country. It was a priceless experience and something I will remember forever. I highly suggest it, as it has taught me worlds more than any classroom or book could. - Villanova View Entire Review
I learned how to live on my own. I realized I can be put in a new situation and still thrive. Living in another country isn't as hard as i imagined even not knowing a language coming in. I learned what I am capable of and who I really want to be. While that may sound cliche, its a new start for a semester and you can make yourse... - Providence College View Entire Review
I became more mature and made some great freinds. It was a 5 month experience. - Providence College View Entire Review

Past Review Qui L'italia
It was definitely worthwhile. If I could, I would do it again, although in another city or country. Study abroad tests your limits while creating opportunities to discover, learn, and understand yourself, others, and the world. - Austin College View Entire Review
Though studying abroad did not have a huge impact on my academic interests and future plans, I learned more about myself and developed as an individual than I ever could have in a semester at PC. This is definitely the aspect of study abroad that I am most grateful for. - Providence College View Entire Review
I wish I could go again. I plan to return in the future and have made it a goal in life to travel more and see more of the world. - Providence College View Entire Review
Yes. I LOVED studying abroad. I hated my program, but I loved studying abroad. - Providence College View Entire Review

Learned to be independent. Yes it was worth it, but never again - Villanova University View Entire Review

I learned a lot about myself as an individual, how to be even more independent, and how to communicate and make friends with others. - Trinity University View Entire Review

Italian culture - Villanova University View Entire Review
It was so worthwhile. I learned so much about cultures in different countries, I lived the Italian lifestyle and it was pure bliss. - Ohio State University - Columbus View Entire Review
A different perspective on how I view the U.S. and other countries. Also how to appreciate a higher culture, and my education. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Past Review Adventure
ABSOLUTELY worthwhile. My favorite semester of college thusfar. It really taught me to take a step outside of my comfort zone. I challenged myself to experience as much as possible while I was living abroad, in Europe, and I would do it all again if I had the opportunity. - Villanova University View Entire Review
Past Review A Broad Abroad
Europe was amazing. Being abroad is definitely an eye opening experience. - Villanova University View Entire Review
Past Review Great
Great cultural experience, Definitely worthwhile. - Providence College View Entire Review
Extremely worthwhile. I would recommend studying abroad to anyone who has the slightest interest. It helped me grow as an individual and understand different cultures and values. I am still unsure of my future plans, but am now interested in global communications. - Hollins University View Entire Review
Yes it was very worthwhile. I made new and lasting friendships, learned some of the Italian language, and was able to travel to many countries that I have always wanted to go to. I have become more aware of worldly events and have become further interested in international business. - Providence College View Entire Review
best 5 months of my life - Providence College View Entire Review
