CIS Study Abroad In Rome was an experience of a lifetime!
The program coordinators were always there to help with every step of the process since it is a long one but it is worth it when you know that just in a couple of weeks or so you will be traveling to another country. The school that I was in, was overall great, the staff was super nice and very helpful. I had such a great experience in Rome and CIS made it that much better. They helped me feel at home and the people that I attended school with were great. Learning about a new culture was an experience but it is one that I would do all over again.
The professors were very easy to talk to and they tried to help everyone out when it came to what to know fo exams.
The administrator I had was very nice and helped us out in anyway possible.
The apartment I lived in was well taken care of and accomodated all of us living their.
Finding out about the culture was an experience but I eventually figured out how to deal with it and tried to everything the Italian way.
I have to say it was somewhat noisy due to the bus or tram but it was easy to walk at during the night as well as the day.
Food took a while getting used to since I did not know what was good or not. Slowly but surely I found some great places to have dinner as well as just grab a quick lunch.
Places around where I lived and went to school had some really nice people, since me as well as my roomates became regular customers so we made some friends.
Even though I did not use the services, I knew how it worked and there was so much of it being offered.

CISabroad - Summer in Rome A little crazy, but fun

Studying in Rome was definitely a different experience. The program is slightly unorganized and doesn't quite prepare you for what you're about to encounter. Our advisor did not even contact us about arriving in Italy until a good 10 days after arrival, so we had to find out most things on our own. I loved the city and the country, but I could've done without going through the program.

Though I was just dropped off in Italy without any knowledge of the country or help getting any where except my apartment, my month there was truly spectacular. The only thing I would change is the amount of classes I took. Other than that there is not a thing I would change about my experience. I wish I could go back to Rome everyday. Living in a local neighborhood was probably my favorite part about the program. If you plan on traveling else where while abroad use bus2alps. It's a program that helps students travel on the weekends. I wish I had known about it before hand. My time in Rome was an adventure that I am forever grateful for.
