Students Reflect on their First Weeks in Bergamo, Italy
The University of Bergamo is a wonderful institution with different methods of teaching that creates a great environment for learning.

"Studying abroad has changed my life; living in Italy is a complete culture shock, however, well needed. Every day is a new adventure whether visiting the Coliseum or saying a prayer inside the St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City. I'm so happy to be here. Dreaming is a life choice, so every day I make the right choice" –Tykhese Woods, CAF Senior 



"Going to Bergamo is a big difference compared to Wroxton. The reason for that is because you really are on your own.  Since Bergamo is a non-tourist area most people here speak only Italian. Because of this I was able to improve my Italian dramatically! I also became a chef because if you want to save money you have to cook at home.  
Going to trips on the weekend is actually easy and cheap!  Every day I wake up to a new adventure in Italy. I can honestly say this experience is the real study abroad. I have friends from all over the world and my connections continue to grow!  I am learning about everybody's history. For example, French got their revolution in the year 1789 that's why there are 1789 steps in the Eiffel Tower." – Kevin Celisca, CAF Senior
