- MOST AMAZING EXPERIENCE!01/09/19
I was so nervous before studying abroad. I had never been to Europe and did not know what to expect. The SAI program was very welcoming and always made us feel comfortable. We got to go on amazing trips with the groups and made lots of new friends. I
would do it over again, if I could.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Everyone who goes abroad can expect the experience of a lifetime. My experience was no different! From swimming in the ocean in Positano, Italy to drinking beer and eating pretzels in Munich for Oktoberfest, I have made memories that I will cherish for
a lifetime. While abroad, your experience is truly what you make it but the amount of support and guidance I received from SAI allowed me to take full advantage of every opportunity!read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I would say my study abroad experience was unlike many other peoples, I quickly became friends with degree seekers at the university which furthered my cultural immersion in Rome but also introduced me to people from all around the world. John Cabot is
a very international school with a good ratio of study abroad to degree seekers, the location of the University and the SAI housing and apartments was very central and in one of the most beautiful areas of Rome. SAI also provided a multitude of program activities such as cooking classes, city tours and a 3 day excursion all costs included !!!! The food in Italy is a huge perk, it is the freshest best quality food you will get anywhere and it is pretty cheap if you know to avoid the touristy areas. Choosing Rome and John Cabot as my study abroad destination was one of the best decisions I have ever made, it was one year of living the true Italian bella vita and I wouldn't have traded it for any other experience.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
