I learned a lot of Italian in the limited time I was there, which absolutely made it worthwhile for me. - Reed College View Entire Review
Going abroad was the best thing I ever did for myself. It helped me gain confidence, introduced me to a different lifestyle, and gave me a serious appreciation for food as a social activity. It was incredible to see so much of the art and architecture I had studied for years, in person. - Syracuse University View Entire Review

I learned so many things it is impossible to write it all here. Mainly I learned about Italian culture, and I also learned a lot of practical skills. I learned how to travel, how to be patient, how to be uncomfortable and love it. I learned a lot about myself, and I wouldn't trade this experience for the world. - Wellesley College View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with Syracuse University: Florence - Syracuse University in Florence
I learned Italian, how to navigate in a country without fully knowing the language, and my classes were relevant to my academic goals. (Major in anthropology with a focus in Classical archaeology). It was absolutely worthwhile. - Syracuse University View Entire Review
I gained some familiarity in Italian and I think that makes it worth it. I also learned some cool things about the Sicilian mafia in my class on the subject, and was able to travel around Italy quite a bit in my brief time there. I'd say it was worth it. - Reed College View Entire Review
I learned to be more independent, to plan and manage time, to adapt to new cicumstances and challenges and respect and appreciate a new culture. It was worthwhile as I grew personally,socially and developed more skills. - Trinity University View Entire Review
