“My KIIS experience was something for which I could never have prepared. I was terrified leaving the country for the first time, but it ended up being one of the most amazing months of my life. Italy is the greatest place in the world to spend a summer enjoying art, food and historical culture.”

– Wynn, Italy

“My study abroad program to Italy opened my eyes to another culture. I loved getting to meet new people from other universities and my home university. It was informative to meet Italian business owners, restaurant owners and cooks. Everyone demonstrated their culture beautifully and were open to discuss their cities and their pride for their nation. Italian culture and life is a concept that will never go unnoticed. They pride themselves on the simple quality of their food and the joyous interactions they use to connect with people.”

– Jessica, Italy

“One thing I promised Angelique during her time in college was the chance to study abroad. When the opportunity presented itself for Angelique to travel to Italy, I couldn’t say no. I was definitely nervous at first, but I knew she was in good hands with the KIIS faculty and program directors. During her time abroad, Angelique visited Florence and Rome. She learned all about Italian culture, food, history, art, and so much more. Angelique reflects on her memories from the trip to this day and is still in contact with her classmates with whom she traveled. I would encourage every student to take advantage of this incredible opportunity and am forever grateful to KIIS for giving my daughter an experience she will never forget!”

– Viveca, parent of Italy student

– Leen, Italy

“Deciding to study abroad with KIIS was the best decision I’ve ever made! I got to learn so much about Italian culture, see so many historical landmarks, and meet so many incredible people! I will always be grateful for all of the experiences and people I met while abroad. I can’t think of any other way I would want to spend my summer!”

– Hannah, Italy

“The KIIS Italy Summer trip brought me so many amazing experiences like getting to not only see the Pope but be feet away from him! I can’t explain how enriching and life changing this study abroad trip was for me! Not only did we get to visit busy cities like Rome and Florence but we also got to see the countryside in Tuscany! Italy is even more beautiful than the pictures!”

– Christina, Italy

“KIIS was such a special experience that I will never forget. Over the four weeks, I got to visit the most extraordinary places and create bonds with new people overseas. I learned more than I ever imagined about the places we visited and also about myself as an individual. I encourage anyone who ever has the chance to experience the KIIS Italy program.”

– Maggie, Italy

“My KIIS Summer Abroad in Italy was a life changing experience that brought me new perspectives and understandings. If you do take the extra initiative to broaden your horizons, you will find some of the most beautiful things this world has to offer.”

– Ashley, Italy

“For me this experience was so eye-opening, getting introduced to different cultures and just seeing how much larger the world actually is… Every little detail of each city, even the street art found there, adds to the certain character of that area.”

-Kathleen, Italy

“KIIS Italy was an experience of a lifetime for me. I learned so much about the culture, religion, art and people, but above all, I learned a lot about myself. Italy was absolutely beautiful, and I was fascinated with all the historic places and pieces of art there. My favorite place we visited was Rome because it’s so old and contains so much history. This experience showed me that it’s possible to go and do things beyond my comfort zone providing me with the confidence to achieve more in my future career wherever I end up.”

– Hayley, Italy

“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.”

– Sarah, Italy
