The Florence International Media Institute 2010

Reviews from Students June  21-July 30, 2010


“DECIDING to go to Florence with the Communications Department and Dr. Fellow was truly the most rewarding experience of my life.  I learned so much about myself and other cultures while studying in Florence for the summer. If you have the chance to go I would definitely do it."

"STUDYING  abroad in Italy was one of the greatest experiences of my college career. With the organization of this program, we had enough time to go to class and to explore the country. I traveled to eight cities in three weeks, met people from all over the world, formed wonderful friendships, gained a new perspective on life, and learned a tremendous amount about the world and myself."

"ITALY is a place that has captured my heart in so many ways. I love its culture, its food, its scenery, and its people. I couldn't have asked for a better experience studying abroad. It was just long enough for me to get a little homesick in the last few days, and I loved getting to know people in my group I had never met before. It is a great place to learn about culture and take six units toward your major."

senior journalism major

"TAKING classes in Florence provided a fantastic mix of academic and cultural learning. Academically, you learn from Cal State Fullerton's terrific faculty. And the cultural learning is unrivaled because of Florence's unique place in Western culture and Italy's place among European cultures. "
