Studying abroad is the best decision I have ever made. I have made amazing friends, learned so much history, ate amazing foods, and gained a new cultural lens. Living in Rome has taught me so much about life and opened my eyes to things I never would have thought about. The Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, and Vatican are truly as stunning as everyone says, and the gelato is the best dessert you'll eat, but my favorite part is walking down the street and feeling like I belong here. It's the little things that make me the most happy during my journey - using a phrase or word I just learned, going to the grocery store, becoming friends with the man who makes my coffee every morning. When away from all that's normal, these little moments of belonging feel the best. These are the things I will close my eyes and miss the most (although mysteriously ending up at the Trevi Fountain every few nights isn't a bad one either).

All aspects of your life will improve while abroad and this can be seen within all of my classmates. Your confidence will increase, as well as your awareness of others, education, life goals, and more. Studying abroad opens your eyes to a plethora of things and the CEA staff is there for you every step of the way to ensure that your time here is the absolute best it can be.
