“I was incredibly nervous before my trip, but it turned out to be the most enlightening and extraordinary experience of my life. Seeing the medieval towns, ancient pieces of art and where our civilization began in person defy the ability to describe. The professors and my fellow students made it all the more enjoyable, and I know I have made lifelong friends. Spending a month abroad is the best way to experience, understand and enjoy the culture and the people and I wouldn’t trade my time there for anything.”
