But wait! You don’t have to necessarily be a student at Rutgers University. Countless amounts of students from many different universities across the country have also signed on for the summer abroad program, as per recommendations made by their university professors. High school students who will be entering college during the 2010-2011 year can also participate in the program.
How much Italian do you need to know to join? None. You can simply begin your beginner lessons in Urbino, or you could take more advanced classes. Art History lessons can also be selected, which are conducted in English.
What accomodations are provided, and what about meals? Your tuition for the program includes: cultural excursions arranged by the overseers of the program; three meals per day; class fees; and room and board. All over-night excursions that include staying in a hotel is also included in the price. All hotels are first-rate!
What cities will be visited during the excursions? Each year, the program can vary. The year I went, we visited the following cities:
Students have also been able to do their own excursions during the weekends when free from classes. During my stay I visited:
Other students were able to visit: Cinque Terre, Venezia, and Rome – to name a few.
