Overall Experience
A student studying abroad with Gustolab International: Rome - Institute for Food Studies Semester and Programs
I gained an abundance of independence and confidence in my ability to meet new people. I learned a new perspective on food, nutrition and sustainability of Italian culture versus American. I learned to respect differences in cultures and fully immerse myself to get the most out of my experience. It was extremely worthwhile and e... - University of Massachusetts Amherst / UMass View Entire Review
I learned much about the cultural importance of food, the nutritional aspects of the food we eat, and how much of a problem food waste is in the world. The program was extremely worthwhile. - University of Massachusetts Amherst / UMass View Entire Review
Abroad was definitely worth it and I had an amazing time due to being with close friends, however the program was almost unbearable. - University of Illinois - Urbana-Champaign View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Gustolab International: Rome - Institute for Food Studies Semester and Programs
I learned that there are amazing people doing amazing work to combat the social and environmental issues that I am passionate about. I also learned how important it is to get worldly views of these issues and to compare and contrast how effectively they are being dealt with in one place compared to another. - University of Vermont View Entire Review
September 26, 2017 The Best Food. Ever!
I learned a lot about olive oil and wine, so I am very boujee about those things now. I also did a lot of growing up in terms of navigating a new space on my own. - University of Illinois - Urbana-Champaign View Entire Review
September 26, 2017 Great Experience!
I learned all about food and culture of Italy. It was also a great opportunity to travel around Europe. It was a great experience - University of Illinois - Urbana-Champaign View Entire Review
I gained an extensive knowledge of the Italian food & wine business, which is vastly different from how America does it. I discovered how much passion farmers have for their products and how we can learn and apply this knowledge to encourage sustainable and innovative food systems. - University of Illinois - Urbana-Champaign View Entire Review
i learned how to be more adapatable, patient, determined, and to figure things out for myself while staying calm. It was absolutely worthwhile. - University of Illinois - Urbana-Champaign View Entire Review
June 11, 2018 Ti Amo, Roma
I learned how different the world is outside of America. I had been to Europe before, but only by living in another country for an extended period of time can you understand the different cultural nuances. I think this un-American view is important to have because I plan on spending more time out of the states. - University of Illinois - Urbana-Champaign View Entire Review
Gained knowledge and experience of what life is like outside of the US! - University of Illinois - Urbana-Champaign View Entire Review
Learned more about Sustainability, and Italian food culture. - University of Illinois - Urbana-Champaign View Entire Review
Gained friendship and the ability to live out of my comfort zone - University of Illinois - Urbana-Champaign View Entire Review
This experience was completely worthwhile for me. Not only did I come home with a group of new friends but I also felt like I learned a lot living in a foreign country. I think it's so important for people to get out of their comfort zone and experience a culture different than their own. I learned a lot about myself as well as ... - University of Illinois - Urbana-Champaign View Entire Review
