Overall Experience
It was so worthwhile, i learned to live on my own and be self-sufficient - SUNY - College at Oneonta View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Knowledge Exchange Institute: Milan - Instituto Europeo di Design
Though there were some negative aspects, overall it was the best experience I have had in college so far. Very worthwhile to say that you took classes in another country but get to travel the country at the same time. - SUNY - College at Oneonta View Entire Review
I learned so much about myself. I grew as a person. I feel like i came back a new person, more of an adult. I learned so much about fashion. I gained professional experience that will help me in the future so much. - SUNY - College at Oneonta View Entire Review
I was independent before studying abroad, but I gained a larger sense of it during my semester in Italy. Life is about seizing opportunities and making the most of them, and I feel like I certainly did while in Milan. I would encourage everyone to study abroad. - Eastern Kentucky University View Entire Review
