Living on my own and gaining more knowledge on how to handle situations that I wouldn't be faced with day to day back home. It was definitely worth it and beyond wonderful to see such beautiful places. - University of Nevada, Reno View Entire Review
I gained lifelong friendships, improved Italian language skills, personal growth and a greater sense of self and independence while abroad, as well as travel and cultural experiences I wouldn't trade for the world. - University of Nevada, Reno View Entire Review
I learned about what really matters in life. Studying abroad was extremely worthwhile. - University of Nevada, Reno View Entire Review
It was absolutely worthwhile. It gives you more than foreign language experience. It gets you out of your comfort zone and makes you more adaptable. You also will be in scenarios where you will need problem solving skills. In my case, I also improved on my sense of direction immensely. - University of Maine - Orono View Entire Review
Learned a lot of academic things, a lot about myself, and gained a new perspective on the world. - Trinity University View Entire Review
I learned how to be self-sufficient. I am more confident when I am alone and traveling doesn't seem so crazy anymore. Italy was a crazy country that gave me new insights on people and life. I try to slow down as often as I can to catch up with friends and reflect on life. This trip was life changing. - University of Nevada - Reno View Entire Review
How to be flexible, patient, and independent. - University of Nevada - Reno View Entire Review
I am in love with traveling and I learned that being abroad is something I want to have play a major part in my life. - University of Nevada - Reno View Entire Review
It was worth every penny. I learned to be more outgoing and to speak up more - University of North Dakota View Entire Review
Past Review Go To Viterbo!
I still tell people that my study abroad experience was the best time of my life. It was great to study but still have so many great opportunities to travel and see Europe! If you are frugal, your money will go a long way in taking you anywhere and everywhere you want to go. I recommend study abroad to everyone I know. USAC was ... - University of Nevada - Reno View Entire Review
Past Review I Love Viterbo!!
My study abroad trip was absolutely worthwhile. I had a blast, got to see more than I could have hoped for, and made lifelong friends. I gained so much from it, and the knowledge and experience you take away with you is priceless. - University of Maryland - College Park View Entire Review
It is difficult to explain in short my experience, near impossible I suppose. What is important to me is the values I learned while studying abroad. None of us are inherently born with values that make us 'good' people or as I should say, easy to co-exist with. When living in a city like Viterbo, you are able to slow down, look ... - California State University - Chico View Entire Review
This experience brought me some of the greatest gifts- from the locals who became good friends, to the beauty of the culture, to the art, to the architecture, to the wonderful food, and all the history. There was something new to learn every day. Something new to experience. - University of Nevada – Las Vegas View Entire Review
August 16, 2018 Unforgettable
Yes, I learned how to live more on my own, how to interact with those who do not speak the same language as me, and how to appreciate another culture besides my own. - University of Maine - Orono View Entire Review

"Do you country a favor. leave it" I learned to go outside of myself, make hard decisions, and see the world differently. It was well worth it. - California State University - Chico View Entire Review

I learned that I can depend mainly on myself to take care of myself, both physically and mentally, I can travel anywhere in the world without use of a cell phone, and that I can effectively vet out a city within a short amount of time. - University of Tulsa View Entire Review
i learned more about myself over there than i ever would here. you learn so much about the world, about people, about life. everyone should do this, and its more affordable than you think - University of Maine - Orono View Entire Review
This was the most worthwhile experience and I would tell anyone to do it! - University of Maine - Orono View Entire Review
I learned so many things from my time abroad. I mostly learned to fine-tune my people skills and how to think on my feet and stay calm when running into difficulties when traveling. - University of Maine at Orono View Entire Review
I gained so much confidence in myself and learned so much more about the Italian culture. It was definitely worthwhile! - California State University - Stanislaus View Entire Review
This experience is something that I will remember for the rest of my life. - California State University - Fresno View Entire Review
Of course I had a great time because I was in Italy. However, I had to spend so much money in order to go and I didn't learn very much (only the things I taught/practiced myself). I wish that I would've found my own school and studied abroad as an exchange student, living with a family, so that I truly could've made the most of ... - Cleveland State University View Entire Review
My attitude towards a lot of things changed. Their way of living really had an impact on me. I absolutely recomend it to everyone, it is an amazing experience to have! - California State University - Dominguez Hills View Entire Review
Past Review Viterbo, Italy!
It was the smartest decision I have made. It made me grow as a person and gave me a different outlook on life :) - California State University - Chico View Entire Review

About

The Viterbo program is ideal for students interested in studying Italian, History, Art, Journalism, or Environmental Studies in a bustling university town in central Italy. Viterbo is a great location to study and practice the Italian language and to experience its rich culture away from English-speaking tourist areas. The city is also rich in historical, artistic, and monumental legacies. There is no better setting for studying the humanities than Italy. Through a variety of course field trips, you will gain firsthand experience in Italian food, culture, history, and the environment, providing a rich variety of subjects and experiences for writing and reflection. You may choose to study for one semester or a full year. This program offers five diverse academic areas: History, Art, Journalism, Environmental, and Italian Studies. However, the academic courses are only part of the value of the program. Participation in various local field trips, optional field studies, festivals and activities also forms an integral part of the experience.
