LdM ALUMNI OF THE MONTH

The primary goal I set for my study abroad experience was to make Florence feel like a home. I didn’t want to be a tourist, looking at the city through the lens of a camera. I wanted to assimilate, participate in Florentine life as if I was a local. Fortunately, LdM gave me every opportunity to do just that. I took my favorite classes at LDM: An oil painting class where I learned how to reproduce the famous artwork from the Uffizi Museum, a nutrition course where I became a master chef at preparing the Italian classics, and even an Italian language course where I was empowered to converse with locals and understand them on a more authentic level. LdM also spiced up the abroad experience with activities that I would have never dreamed of doing. My friends and I took a yoga class in the middle of a contemporary art museum. We visited the famous Medici Villas outside the city and even joined a choir club where we learned how to sing the Italian classics. Thank you, LdM, for helping me become a true Florentine this semester.

Studying abroad at LdM Florence, went above and beyond my expectations! My favorite classes that I took were Regional Food in the Cultural Perspective and World Religions. LdM offers amazing opportunities to its students. I was able to volunteer every week at a local food and clothing bank in Florence. This experience helped me learn how to work as part of a team to accomplish common goals while demonstrating kindness and compassion. I am beyond thankful for LdM because they helped make my study abroad experience unforgettable!

LdM SUCCESS STORY

ANDREA GONZALES, LdM ALUMNA
IN THE 2016 VENICE ARCHITECTURE BIENNALE

Andrea’s semester abroad in Florence with LdM really came in handy, when she was hired to work with a Chilean architecture firm to reconstruct a submission for this year’s Venice Biennale.

Language skills and familiarity with Italy benefitted Andrea when she returned to Italy to create Pedro’s Lookout, a famous Lookout that was originally built in Chile. Read more…
