Going abroad with ASA was so easy. The staff is friendly and easy to contact, the planned trips are fun and the housing is perfect. The company is small but has representatives on every campus they work with and are available through email anytime. Overseas there are location directors to guide you around the city and take you on a couple of weekend trips, Chiara is excellent! The weekend trips planned for when I was abroad were Rome and Venice, which were perfect because I might not have gone to either of those locations on my own. We also had a few program gatherings local to Florence to check out museums and do a gelato crawl. Housing is in the city center minutes from nearly every monument, museum and all the best restaurants. ASA was the perfect fit for my abroad experience.

I could not have picked a better program to study abroad with. Everyone from the advisers to the programs main contacts were exceptionally helpful every step of the way. I was drawn to this program because of the afordable price point, and I'm so glad I was because the left over money I had let me travel all across Europe with some of my now best friends. Studying abroad is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I am so happy that I got to experience it through ASA

This program was such a perfect fit for my study abroad experience. Chiara was an amazing 'abroad mom' and makes everyone feel so comfortable! My apartment was right in the middle of the city and close to everything I needed. The university was perfect. It had multiple locations therefore students had to explore the city more which I loved. The excursions for ASA were great. I would not have figured out Rome without Chiara and it definitely got the group excited to travel since we went so early on. I would do it again in a second and wish I had another opportunity to go abroad with ASA!

How can this program be improved?
Maybe more day trip options? From getting accepted to the program to my entire semester in Florence I had very minimal complaints about the program. Maybe add more possible day trips however the semester was so busy that I don't even know if more would be necessary.

I had an amazing experience in France! I loved Aix En Provence so much. I feel like ASA & IAU made the experience phenomenal. Like everyone who studies aborad, I was home sick but then I got over it. I had the opportunity to meet amazing friends, and travel together. I would do it again if I had the opportunity, I fell in love with it that I hope I can move there in the future. My host Mom was adorable! She made me feel at home.

ASA was a great program to go through. The staff was extremely helpful. I got sick while I was abroad and my program director immediately helped me find a doctors office to go to and helped me through the steps to get an appointment since the healthcare system is different than it is here. They are a great company. I really liked that we had trips throughout the semester to other places in the UK. My group went to Stonehenge, Bath, Oxford, the Cotswolds and on a weekend trip to Wales. I definitely recommend ASA to anyone wanting to go abroad.

How can this program be improved?
I think it would be nice to have another meeting or two with the whole ASA group while in the city.
