My time abroad has been the most memorable experience in my life. There is no question whether it was worthwhile. If I had the chance to go back, I would go back a thousand times over. I was able to experience being independent while still living in a structured environment. I also started to really appreciate how culture plays ... - Trinity University View Entire Review
I learned a lot both about Italian culture and about American culture. It really gave me the opportunity to expand my ways of thinking and participate in a different community. It was entirely worthwhile, the people I met in my program and in Rome were for the most part amazing and contributed to my unique experience. - Fordham University View Entire Review
Past Review Life Changing.
Saw the world, met amazing people and tasted things I may never taste again. - Fordham University View Entire Review
Italians have this joie de vivre that you will not encounter anywhere else in the world. Their enthusiasm and quality of life rivals that of Americans who can barely get off their couch and go explore their country. People have characterized Italy as being a third world country with first word dining, but the happiness and lax l... - Loyola University Chicago View Entire Review
a knowledge of other cultures. it was fantastic - Loyola University Chicago View Entire Review
I learned so much about myself. Who I am, the culture I come from, and who I can be. I gained confidence and became more worldly. - Loyola University Chicago View Entire Review
Honestly, this program changed my life. I found out at the end that the people is what makes studying abroad really what it is cracked up to be. Now I have life long friends all around the country. I miss it everyday and I wish I could relive it again (which I sometimes do by reading my journal). - Loyola University Chicago View Entire Review
I learned so much: independence, thinking on my feet, learning about new cultures. I learned about my Italian roots and felt more connected to my heritage and my family. I loved Europe and traveling around. - Santa Clara University View Entire Review
Past Review Perfetto
I learned so much about myself and how I deal with situations along with how I deal with others. I became a lot more laidback and more of a minimalist. I value experiences now, not things. - Saint Louis University View Entire Review
It was very worthwhile. I gained confidence, a greater sense of personal independence. and a multitude of unforgettable memories with great friends. - Providence College View Entire Review

I learned so much about the Italian culture. But more importantly I learned so much about myself. I did things I never thought I was capable of doing. It was beyond worthwhile. Definitely the best experience of my life. - Fordham University View Entire Review
Past Review Rome
My study abroad experience was definitely worthwhile. I learned so much and was able to do things and go places that I might never be able to do again. I am much more aware of other cultures now and would like to study or work internationally again after this experience. - Fordham University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about independence, how to get around between countries, how to live somewhere where you don't speak the language, and loads about art and history. - Fordham University View Entire Review
Cultural and social tolerance. - Fordham University View Entire Review
My experience was enriching and unforgettable. I forced myself out of my comfort zone and took chances. I started saying "yes." As a result, I made some great friends and really awesome memories. - Loyola University Chicago View Entire Review
It was good but I got bored in Rome and wished that i had studied somewhere in Spain. I didn't really like the program but it wasn't terrible. I definitely didn't fall in love with it the way others did. - Loyola University Chicago View Entire Review
I learned a lot about a different culture and way of life. It was definitely a worthwhile experience and I gained a lifetime of friends, memories, and an amazing education experience that took place both in the classroom and during my travels around Europe. - Loyola University Chicago View Entire Review
It was absolutely worthwhile! I learned how to adjust to and live according to a foreign culture. I learned how to plan and budget for my own trips. - Loyola University Chicago View Entire Review
Appreciate what you have. - Loyola University Chicago View Entire Review
I gained a deeper understanding of different cultures and how to be more accepting of those cultures. - Xavier University View Entire Review

Past Review Rome Is Home
I learned so much about myself and other cultures while abroad, an education you don't get in America. I can't imagine a better program, faculty, and city for a semester abroad. It was worth all the money and time and I would do it over again a million times if i could. - Loyola University Chicago View Entire Review
The JFRC was the best program, and I had the most incredible experience!! - Fordham University View Entire Review
Learned about others and myself, the two most important things you can learn about. Extremely worthwhile. - Fordham University View Entire Review
