Past Review Take Me Back!!1
There are so many things you gain from studying abroad that I can't even list them all here. You need to go study abroad!! It's not just worthwhile its soo much more that there isn't even a word for it - Clemson University View Entire Review
Many things, but what I really took from my experience was seeing what it was like to be a foreigner. Doing everyday things was more of a challenge and it was really great to be able to successfully communicate using a second language. Of course it was worthwhile! - Texas A&M University - College Station View Entire Review
I learned to be more independent and see the world in a new way. I gained a new sense of responsibility and appreciation for the people and world surrounding me. It was one of the best decisions I have made, and I would not change it for anything. - University of Nevada - Reno View Entire Review

Past Review Life Changer
Being abroad completely changed my perspective on how I view the world, and traveling all over Europe and being a non-English speaking city has given me the confidence to do anything. - University of Maine at Orono View Entire Review
Learned how to take a step back and actually enjoy life, rather than having a perpetual goal at all times. Also learned how to create lasting friendships and how to truly care for people that are in your life, even if they are just the people serving you cappucinos every day. - University of the Pacific View Entire Review
Trust your self and be confident. Most people want to communicate with you, as much as you want to communicate with them. - University of Nevada - Reno View Entire Review

About

The Torino program is ideal for students who are interested in studying International Business, Art/Architecture/Design, and Italian Studies in an exciting, cosmopolitan setting. Named the Youth Capital of Europe, Torino is an excellent location to study and practice the Italian language and to experience Italy’s rich culture away from the crowded tourist areas. Torino is home to many prominent international companies, and this program provides an excellent opportunity to meet European students and business people in a leading center for European business and business education. Touted as Italy’s most sustainable city, Torino is home to two major parks: the Valentino along the Po River and Pellerina which is Italy’s most extended green space. Torino is a candidate city for Europe’s Green Capital. Torino was also recently awarded the title of European Capital of Sport! This program offers three diverse academic areas: International Business, Architecture/Design/Art and Italian Studies. You may choose to study for one semester, a full year. or one or both of the summer sessions. All students are required to take an intensive Italian language course during the first six weeks of the semester to help them integrate into their surroundings. The Torino program combines academic coursework with practical learning, tours and field trips to create an integrated cultural experience. The main square of the city center, Piazza Castello, reflects the entire architectural history of Torino from its ancient Roman roots to the global business giant it is today. Torino’s rich combination of old and new styles makes the city the perfect location to study art and architecture. It is home to several Savoy royal palaces and residences named World Heritage Sites, as well as the home of FIAT and leading car designers Tjaarda, Giugiaro, and Pininfarina. Torino was named the first world capital of design for its creative energy and innovative production, and its strategic geographical location makes other European centers (Rome, Paris, Berlin, Geneva) easily accessible.
