Why Study in Italy
Life is good in Italy, and it’s passionately lived. Italian food is magnificent, Italian fashion is daring, Italian art includes some of the greatest masterpieces in history, and the Italian language is considered by many to be the most beautiful in the world. It’s a heady and fascinating place to live, and World Endeavors students in Italy get to experience it all first-hand. Studying abroad in Italy also represents a fantastic opportunity for travel—to each unique Italian city, to the breathtakingly lovely countryside, and to the rest of Europe. Whether pursuing an interest in Italian culture, language, and history, or simply looking for a chance to live in one of the most beautiful parts of Europe, students in Italy will find all they’re looking for and more.
The Value of Studying Abroad
Studying abroad is one of the best choices students can make to deepen their studies and expand their worldview. It’s a chance to learn new ways to think, to meet new friends from around the world, and to be immersed in a new culture or in some cases even a new language. Students who go abroad have access to art, scenery, historical sites, and cultural events that can’t be found at home. No matter what they study, students will find going abroad to be an education in thinking across cultures and adapting to new experiences. And for many, studying abroad is the spark that ignites a lifelong passion for international travel and cultural exploration.

During my time abroad I gained experience living outside of my comfort zone and studying abroad. I gained a love for Italian food and the Italian language as well as the people, culture, and lifestyle.
