Little did I know, my experience here in Florence would exceed my already high expectations entirely. Living in the upbeat and historic city of Florence, while being surrounded by so many diverse cultures is truly an International Business major’s dream come true – which is why I blended in so quickly and took advantage of all the opportunities around me. It is so difficult picking one thing about my time in Florence that truly stood out to me, it is a city that offers so much to appreciate. There is no better way to take a Renaissance Art class than to be in the pit of history and be able to visit the Museums and Churches that we study and there is nothing more soothing than walking to class and passing the Duomo every day. My advice is make as many connections as possible – because there are so many beautiful people to meet, places to see and make lasting memories at, and it gives you a reason to come back. The opportunities LdM has given me have truly been a dream come true. I wouldn’t change anything about my wonderful time here except to extend my program another semester. Thank you for the most incredible four months of my life. Ci vediamo!

Julia Gerogiannis – LdM Study Abroad Semester Student in Florence, Spring 2017

Studying abroad was one of the greatest experiences that I have had as a college student. I was able to grow so much as a person during my semester and truly explore what Italy had to offer. When I decided to study abroad, I knew I wanted to be in Italy but I was not sure where to go. After some recommendations and a decision to give up my fast-pace life for a slower paced semester, I chose Florence. LdM was truly the best fit for me. LdM was unique in offering not only communications classes but also in peace studies. This feature made choosing LdM so easy. I had a great experience taking classes at LdM that were for my major, the program felt very similar to my own back at my home University.

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…
