Studying in Florence has most certainly been the best experience of my life. I loved everything – the amazing food, my host family, my professors, my friends, all the trips around Italy and beyond. I felt like my time in Italy helped me figure out who it is I want to be in life and what I want to do, which is no small feat. As a philosophy and religion double major, I wasn't quite certain what I was getting myself into with the art history courses. It turns out that the courses offered were a great complement to my field of study. Between the great professors and on-site classes, I learned so much and actually had a blast doing it. It wouldn't have been the same without my incredible host family – every dinner was an adventure full of laughter and the occasional Italian grammar lesson. I can't wait to go back and visit my host mom as soon as possible! Not a day goes by since I've gotten back that I don't think of my time in Italy.
