Student Feedback

I truly cannot say enough about this beautiful city. Up until several months before I left, I had no idea Perugia even existed but I’m so glad I chose to study there. I loved that it was a smaller city which offered a break from the constant go go go of living in a larger city (although Florence isn’t too far away). It is easy to walk almost everywhere and you do get a bit of a workout with all the hills! There is so much history and unique facts to be learned.

I’ve been asked multiple times why I chose to go to Cape Town of all places for my experience abroad — I never truly had an answer, but knowing what I do now about living in South Africa, I would have never picked a different place to go! This country has SO much to offer: wildlife, activities, food, culture, diversity, language, adventure, experience, etc . . . I recommend South Africa to anybody! If you’re even slightly considering going abroad, I’m telling you the answer is already YES!

I was recommended CIS Abroad over any other program by my school’s Office of International Education because of the high regard students from the past decade had for their programs . . . I went into CIS Abroad’s program not knowing a soul and they made the transition unbelievably easy for me. If the other programs are anything like CIS Abroad Barcelona, you can be sure to expect a team that genuinely desires for you to have a safe, fun, eye-opening, memorable, and life-changing experience.
