An amazing experience with some room for improvement.

10/10

Generally speaking, my experience with CSU:International Programs is a life changing one. I would have never learned what I have learned both in and out of the classroom, I would have never been able to test myself with my comfort level with the language, I would have never been able to make the life long friendships that I have without be a part of the CSUIP program.

However, there were instances when I had to think to myself, "What was this for?" One example was all the paperwork that was required of us before departing the United States. The Apostle of the Hague and the police background checks were all very difficult to obtain, especially when there were no clear instructions, but also, upon arriving in Madrid, the director told us that those documents, which cost money but also time, were not necessary; that they were only required by the US government not the Spanish government.

Another part where I felt that I did not have spectacular support was with the director at the time. There is a new director now, but my director would not back me on my studies. He told me that I was not "advanced" enough to be registering for the classes that I wanted to, and "highly suggested" that I register for a less advanced course. I was not only offended by this, but also felt that he did not have my best interest in mind and that he did not want me to challenge myself; in turn, he did not want me to grow.

Amazing Program for an entire year in Florence, Italy!

9/10

CSU IP Florence is a great program for students who really want to spend an entire year in a beautiful foreign country! The program is set up for Architecture, Studio Art, Art History, Classics, and Literature. As an Art History student my classes were sometimes at the Uffizi museum and we were taken on field trips around the city of florence. I was also able to learn the language fluently, because we had one to two italian classes everyday, which varied from beginner to advanced. The professors were both Italian and American, depending on the classes. The staff were so helpful and knew everything about Florence, who were always ready to help. The school took us on many field trips throughout the year, including: Rome, Naples, Pompeii, Verona....ect.

Housing was not set up by the school, as a student you had to find your own roommates and housing. Which can be difficult but at the same time you learn a lot about budgeting and living with new people.

On weekends start on thursday and you are able to either stay in florence or travel all over Europe. Although Italy is a beautiful country the winters are cold and the summers are hot! So be ready! I must say that this program changed my life because I meet some of my closest friends and learned so much about the language, art, and culture!
