Differences in culture, similarities between Spanish and Italian that helped me learn Italian better since I had taken 4 years of Spanish in high school, a new mindset, gained new skills in fine arts such as ceramics and jewelry/metals - University of Hartford View Entire Review
I gained a lot of confidence in my own artwork and also learned a few new mediums to work with. I also got more real world experience such as handling my money and communicating with others. It was a worthwhile experience. - University of Hartford View Entire Review
Seeing another part of the world and how other people and place function besides corporate America was cool. It was worthwhile. - University of Hartford View Entire Review
i learned about how my family would be in italy and i learned a different type of environment. i appreciate much more in life now going abroad - University of Hartford View Entire Review
This trip was so worthwhile. I made friends that I will never forget. I saw some of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen in my life. I learned how to embrace other cultures, try new things, see the world from other people's perspective. But I also learned how to slow down, how to enjoy the little things, to savor life. - University of Hartford View Entire Review

I learned that getting up and exploring your surroundings is the best way to learn about where you're staying. I also learned that gelato is inevitable and you will eat it more than you've ever eaten any type of ice cream before in your life. - University of Hartford View Entire Review

I learned that I miss more than I gain by living life like a rat race. The Italians know how to enjoy life in a way that Americans never learn. I really hope that I can bring some semblance of that peace to my life in the States. - Trinity University View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with University of Georgia: Cortona - Italy Studies Abroad
I can't say enough how great this program was. I think about it everyday and I wish that more people knew about it and applied. I don't make sense to me why someone wouldn't do it had they the chance. I am so grateful of the time I shared with the people on this trip and I miss all the friends and faculty I made and I plan on... - University of Hartford View Entire Review
Independence - yes it was. - University of Hartford View Entire Review
Yes it was worth while. I experienced a new life pace, and experienced being disconnected from electronics and social media; which was lovely. - University of Hartford View Entire Review

Nothing has affected my life as strongly as this program has. The people I met there are now life long friends. The professors were more than teachers. they were intellectual peers. This trip also helped me to learn to travel on my own. - University of Hartford View Entire Review
Past Review Ciao, Cortona!
...Words can't really describe how amazing this experience was. For one thing, it made me lose my fear of trying new things and forced me to be spontaneous in every barrier that came my way. I think I also got the travel bug from this. - University of Hartford View Entire Review
Yes of course! I've never been out of the country before and this experience makes me want to travel all over the world! - University of Hartford View Entire Review
