Students Say...

Coming to Urbino was the best decision I ever made. Learning how to function as a journalist in a foreign country while overcoming language barriers and new cultural norms is something that helped me grow in my future profession and life. Aside from that, the city in itself gave me the abroad experience I always wanted and more. From watching World Cup games in the Piazza, to walking up and down the Saturday market, Urbino has left its mark in my life.
