Questions & Answers
AbbyAge: 19-24FemaleMadison, WisconsinUniversity of Wisconsin- MadisonSet Yourself Apart and Get Ahead!11/13/2014How could this program be improved?
The staff support and communication was poor. Many students became frustrated due to a lack of communication regarding student expectations as well as a minimal response to student needs.

Arcadia barely provided us with any information before the programme began. I felt like I was getting on a plane and had no idea what was going to happen from there. Once we were in Italy everything ran smoothly but it would've been nice to get information about the classes and orientation documents before going to another country.

I have recommended this program to all of my friends. Two friends from my college are going to Sicily through Arcadia's program this spring. Unfortunately, I have heard from friends at MCAS in Siracusa that there is a new director of the school there. She isn't focusing on the arts as much as the school had in the past, and a huge piece of my experience was my film photography course. It was wonderful (to say the least) and I am saddened to know that the photography studio is in the process of becoming a staff lounge... non mi piace questo. I do not like this one bit.
