Best study abroad experience!!

This program was a little different from the traditional study abroad experience because you get to visit and stay in 2 countries! The program provides housing, transportation from Barcelona to Rome and plenty of fun activities to attend while in the country. In Barcelona I stayed with a host mom who cooked, cleaned and did our laundry for us. When I arrived in Rome I had a gorgeous apartment with about 5 other girls in one of the main areas in Rome close to the school, restaurants, the market and public transportation. The staff while abroad was extremely helpful and was constantly sharing tips and tricks for getting around the cities. I decided to do this program pretty last minute last summer and it was the best decision of my life. I gained so much independence, confidence and learned a lot about other cultures.
