Studying abroad with the GEO Vicenza Architecture Program has been my most enjoyable term of college. I learned so much about historic architecture and urban planning, improved my sketching abilities and gained a better understanding of a new culture and place.
We saw and experienced many amazing things during the trip but my favorite part was hiking in Vals, Switzerland. Hiking is something I love to do in Hawaii so being able to hike near the Alps was unreal.
I am very grateful to have had this experience and to have been able to be apart of this study abroad program. I saw incredible places and got to explore with some amazing people thanks to the help of many supportive professors, mentors and GEO.

I had a wonderful time in Siena for six weeks. I visited many wineries and had the opportunity to drink wines and eat delicious Italian food. During the week we could go on excursions to places within the Tuscan area. Our professors were hands on and great people I was able to connect with. On the weekends, we would travel to places such as Rome, Florence, Elba and Positano. We also got the opportunity to take an Italian class to help get around the city. 10/10 Would recommend going on this trip, I grew as a person and loved the city! A wonderful opportunity!

This was an absolutely incredible program. We saw 35-40 shows during the nine and a half week programme. There was typically enough time during the day after the discussion to go and explore London and the other cities close by. I was able to go to many museums, and you figure out the Tube fairly early on, especially because you have to use it to get to the more central parts of London. The shows we see in the evening, usually around six, are good and engaging. We had to give an hour and a half sometimes to make sure we had enough time to use the Tube and whatnot. We had a lot of fun on the excursions, and even today, I talk about it with my friends and remember things that happened very fondly. I love the culture over there, and the diversity. I found myself getting to be very comfortable in a foreign country, and as cliché as it sounds, I grew as a person because of my time in London. I had to learn how to budget, how to fend for myself and rely on asking for directions. There's more that goes into it, but I also had to cook for myself and just learn how to function in an unfamiliar place. It was an amazing trip and I would recommend it to Theatre Majors and Minors, as we learned a lot about period styles and saw amazing shows.

The Republic of Ireland is rich in history and culture. The city of Dun Laoghaire is coastal and lively. The Saturday market is a great place to get a feel for Dun Laoghaire and experience the food culture and art of Ireland. The scenic views throughout Ireland are unforgettable.

The trip advisors and professors were welcoming, helpful and supportive in every way possible. The assigned homestay ensured the students time in Ireland was authentic and homey. I loved staying with my family. Family dinners made my stay across seas a little less daunting.

I Couldn't have asked for a better summer.

My time in Ecuador was life changing and amazing in every way. Not only did I learn so much about my field of studies, environmental studies, but I also learned so much about myself. This opportunity was once in a lifetime. I don't think there is any other way to get such an integrated experience while still participating in classes. I feel like I was able to have such a genuine experience and learn about the people and culture in Ecuador in an organic way. I invite everyone who is thinking about this program to do it. I don't foresee anyone regretting that decision or having anything less than an amazing time. I have gained a more appreciative outlook on life and a greater respect for nature. I cannot say enough good things about this program!
