Review for SCIE Center

Franca Lupo has been more to me on my study abroad program than I could have dreamed. The second I arrived at the airport, she bought me a sandwich because she knew I was hungry, and has been sure to treat me and all other students as her own children. The center itself was always clean, professional, and a great place to host our classes. I have loved this program more than I ever imagined, and would recommend it to anyone! Franca even opened her own home to all 20 of us, and taught us how to make bread and pasta. Her grandmother also made pizza for us. Besides classes at the SCIE center, Franca and her sister organized events/parties on some nights that were a blast! Franca also organized many events for our group, taking care to accommodate any special dietary needs we had.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Come to Sicily with an open mind! Before coming on this trip, I was not sure exactly what I would eat, see, or do, but I loved every second of it! Being open to situations outside of your comfort zone is important to get the most out of your time here.

Excellent Experience

The SCIE CENTER is a wonderful program and center! All my students enjoyed the activities/tours and became very fond of Franca. She is a kind and caring person, who truly bonds with every member and is extremely accommodating. She has wonderful connections and resources, which enhance the program at a gargantuan level! Resources include top professors/professionals who give guest lectures and tours of their profession. Franca's own knowledge of the history and culture of Sicily and Italy also added to the experience and helped all in our program to learn extensively about Sicily. She provided tours to many different places in Sicily.

The experience was both fun and academically stimulating. I definitely recommend this center to all study abroad programs!
