Overall Experience
A student studying abroad with Veritas Christian Study Abroad: Rome - Study Abroad and Missions Program
I learned a lot about myself, and how independent I could be. I had never felt like I was in the right place, at the right time, as I did in Rome. Going to Rome was worth every penny, sacrifice, and ANY effort I put towards it. - University of Texas - El Paso / UTEP View Entire Review
