This could go on forever with the numerous things I gained and learned from my study abroad experience. To save time, I will just say that it was indefinitely worthwhile and I would go back in a second. - Santa Reparata International School of Art View Entire Review
I learned how to take things slow and enjoy the little things in life. Family and friends are one of the most important things you have so spend time with them when you can. Live on the edge and do things outside your comfort zone. - University of Wisconsin - Madison View Entire Review
I learned a lot in class, but also travelling, visiting museums, eating food, talking to locals, shopping etc. It was worth every penny and I would go again if I had the time. - Colorado State University View Entire Review
Not only did I learn about the things I was studying (photography, art history, food) but I also learned about the culture of the country my family originated from. I learned how to respect a different lifestyle. - University of Wisconsin - Superior View Entire Review
I learned so much about the Italian culture as well as my independence. This experience was priceless and worth more than any amount of money to me. I wouldn't trade the world for my experience abroad. I loved every minute of it. The culture, the people, the food, and the knowledge I gained while I was there. - Santa Reparata International School of Art View Entire Review
I loved learning about Italian culture and tradition, but I would have loved to remain for an entire semester and year and fully immerse myself in the city and language. The Santa Reparata staff was extremely warm and welcoming, and very helpful with all of our questions. I would absolutely return to Santa Reparata. - University of Tennessee - Knoxville View Entire Review
I gained the opportunity to learn a new culture and see Italy which is something I've always wanted. I also got the privilege to meet amazing people while doing it and working with the school staff and students closely. I was able to build great relationships with the people I've met. - Santa Reparata International School of Art View Entire Review
Learned how to do things on my own. Definitely worth it. - University of Wisconsin - Madison View Entire Review
Past Review Ciao Tutti
Everything. It was totally worth it. I can't wait to go back on vacation with my soon to be wife and our kids and tell them how we were engaged here and we studied art. - University of Texas - San Antonio View Entire Review
