Overall Experience
I learned mostly that Italy is the country for art! You really have to be prepared for the amount of art you are about to see! It was definitely worthwhile, in that, I have made new friends, experienced something I would not have been able to without Berea. I loved it so much! - Berea College View Entire Review

Going to Italy was an incredible experience. I saw things I had learned about in classes over the years in school and experienced places I had only dreamed of. I learned so much about the history of Italy and about the culture. This trip was beyond worthwhile. - Berea College View Entire Review

That I want to go back and learn and see more. - Berea College View Entire Review
I learned a great deal about myself and how quickly I can adapt to a strange location. Though I was met with challenges (language barrier) and the timing was poor (during the holidays, away from family), I believe the trip was worthwhile. I would definitely recommend it to anyone! - Berea College View Entire Review
