LdM ALUMNI OF THE MONTH

Studying abroad at LdM in Florence for a semester was truly indescribable. Everyone talks about the surprising things about Italian daily life but no one really prepared me for how much I would come to love Florence. Four months, something that seemed like such a long time when I arrived, just was not enough. What I learned in the classrooms at LdM was complemented by the history and culture around me in Florence. Additionally, I learned so much more about myself and gained such a larger awareness of the world. My advice to anyone about to study abroad would be this: take it all in and have an open mind. Every experience, every adventure, every walk by the Duomo, enjoy it all while you can. Florence permanently has a piece of my heart. When I think of all the places, I could have studied abroad; I would pick Florence over and over again.

I was very fortunate to experience everything that LdM offers to their students. When I got to Florence, I remember being so excited for all the possibilities, including getting involved with school activities. However, I did not expect to fall in love with the city and school so fast. I enjoyed learning about other cultures especially in their country and I adapted so quickly to Italian culture it was hard for me to leave. I loved all the classes I took at LdM, but I especially loved learning the Italian language. My Italian professor made sure we understood all the basics and was very enthusiastic about teaching us. In addition, I was also extremely lucky to be a part of LdM Web TV Internship. I never imagined that I would be in another country, not only studying what I loved but also being able to work as an intern. During my time in Italy, I was able to travel to different parts of the country and to experience important features of Italian culture like art, food, and wine. I am grateful for everything that I could do and see during my semester abroad in Italy. I 100% recommend study abroad anyone to allow yourself to see how others live across the world. When you do so, it allows you to grow significantly as a person.

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…
