Overall Experience
I learned to be accepting of other cultures and really open my eyes to different types of people. Also am a master at reading maps. - Trinity University View Entire Review
I learned about other cultures and how to interact with people different than me. It was also a growing experience being on my own and managing a budget for food and travels. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Becoming more independent and learning about myself more. It was good but not that worthwhile. - Providence College View Entire Review
Past Review Rollercoaster
Learned how to be independent and deal with stressful issues like navigating foreign cities, transportation screw ups, day-to-day living. yes, it was very worthwhile. - Trinity University View Entire Review
I absolutely LOVED being abroad--meeting new people and seeing the sites of all the places I traveled to were the greatest experiences of my life! It's unfortunate I was stuck in a terrible program, but I did my own thing and had a blast exploring Europe! - Providence College View Entire Review
it was amazing. i learned so much about my self, personal growth and all about an amazing city and culture. I never knew what it meant to love a city until i went to Roma! My possibilities are endless now. - Ithaca College View Entire Review
Past Review Vino
I think I am a more patient with people who do not speak a language. I am also eager to learn new languages. I definitely want to learn Spanish and Arabic now. - Villanova University View Entire Review
I learned about so many new cultures and I even learned more about the US from being away from it for so long. I learned that I can get along with all types of people and that I can adjust and be flexible to travel the world. - Villanova University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IES Abroad: Rome - Rome Center
YEs. I believe everything happens for a reason and everytime I think about my professors and my programs I feel very lucky to have been a part of it. - University of Redlands View Entire Review
I love it. I miss it. I want to go back. The people (teachers, students, staff, bakers, shop owners) are incredible. I made lasting friendships with my peers and with my Italian neighbors. - Ithaca College View Entire Review
Definitely. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Studying abroad was worthwhile and I learned a lot despite not being on my ideal program. I went on to have many other international experiences including living abroad for three years after graduating. I truly believe study abroad is an experience everyone should have. - Lesley College View Entire Review
I feel that Italian is my second culture now. I have adopted it and it is part of my everyday life. I would like to be able to use my language skills in future jobs and I have already done so since returning. I have incredible nostalgia for Rome and there's not a day that goes by that I don't think about my experience abroad. Th... - Rhodes College View Entire Review
Past Review Take Me Back!
I learned to come out of my shell and to go into the experience with an open mind. It paid off! - Providence College View Entire Review
I gained tremendous insight from immersing myself in a new culture, traveling through Europe with new friends, and living and learning a new language and history. Throwing myself into a new situation with new people was eye opening and a truly unforgettable experience. I learned the importance of independence and planning, and ... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself and feel much more confident in myself in the fact that if I was dropped in any city in the world I feel like I would be able to survive just fine. Also, I'm much more outgoing and have learned a second language. - Fordham University View Entire Review

Fluency, friends, a great 6 months. - Fordham University View Entire Review

Past Review When In Rome
If I could repeat those four months and more, I absolutely would, as my time abroad proved to be one of the best- if not the best- time of my life, especially personally and culturally. It has certainly instilled in me a desire to return and live abroad again for a longer period of time, which I am already planning to do. It was... - Johns Hopkins University View Entire Review
