No reservations! My journey begins and ends in the beautiful city of Florence, Italy. A city that taught me that the world is a boundless place that is meant to be explored and learned.

Past Review Learning Journey
I definitely learned a lot about the Italian culture and their way of life. I improved my language skill; not so much on the speaking part but reading and writing are improved by a whole lots. It cleared out what I want to do with my degree. I met a lot of amazing people and made quite a few new friends. It also provides opportu... - University of Texas - San Antonio View Entire Review
Without a doubt this was beyond worthwhile. I do not even know where to begin or how to describe how I have grown from this experience. I am even more independent while also gaining more of an appreciation for relationships. In college, you get a better understanding of who you are and what is important to you. A study abroa... - Richard Stockton College of New Jersey View Entire Review

You learn about a culture in a completely new perspective and if I could live abroad again I would in a heartbeat. It was amazing. - University of Maine - Orono View Entire Review
Studying abroad was the first time I was able to travel outside of the United States.

A student studying abroad with CISabroad (Center for International Studies): Florence - Semester in Florence
My experience was definitely worthwhile. I am not really an adventurous person, but I learned that there comes a point in your life where having an exact plan doesn't always work. Sometimes, you just gotta roll with the tide and be willing to take a leap of faith. A lot of times, it is the things you did not plan for that are th... - Elizabethtown College View Entire Review
My experience was completely worth while. I had no idea how negative the stereotypes against American women were before I lived in Italy, and at the time it was extremely frustrating, but now that Im back in America, it makes me grateful for the freedom I have as a woman in this country. - Wheelock College View Entire Review
Yes I absolutely loved it. An unforgettable experience. I see the world a lot differently now that I was able to actually interact with people from a different cultures. I learned about how people see the world differently than America. - Rhode Island College View Entire Review
My study abroad experience was worthwhile! I actually am planning on studying abroad again next spring semester with same program! - Elizabethtown College View Entire Review
