I had the best time studying abroad with IES in Siena. I loved being in a smaller city because I feel like it gave me the opportunity to become completely immersed in the culture, and I was given more opportunities to practice my Italian language skills. IES truly went above and beyond my expectations through all steps of the study abroad process, from the initial applications to the last day I spent in Siena. All of my classes were very interesting and not something I could have taken at my home university. The professors all wanted us to know the material and truly cared about our progress. The IES staff in Siena were so helpful in answering any questions or tending to our needs, I miss them all! This experience is something that I know I could not have gotten through any other program and one that I will never forget. I cannot wait to return to Siena (hopefully in the near future).
