What was one of your most meaningful experiences?
I think that going into it not knowing anyone really benefited me because I was able to make some amazing relationships with my roommates and new friends as well.   

Why should Lasell students study abroad?
Studying abroad is an amazing opportunity that everyone should take advantage of. It lets students immerse themselves in a different country's culture, create new relationships and have an unforgettable experience!  

What is your number one piece of advice for students studying abroad?
Step outside your comfort zone, you'll be surprised who you meet and where you end up.  

What is a typical day in the life when studying abroad?
A typical day in Florence for me started off by waking up and walking to class, if I was early I would stop by this local cafe close to campus to get a coffee. After my morning was done me or my roommates would pick up fresh bread from the bakery near our apartment, which we all devoured once we got home. After we all finished our classes for the day, we would hang out and walk around the city together. Florence is small but there's so much to see and getting lost is the best way to experience it all.
