hello. i studied at the u of m and graduated with a global studies major. i did my final year study abroad in italy, bologna, located an hour north of florence. the program (BCSP) is one of the most in-depth and intensive italian programs. so if you're looking to improve your italian ten-fold then i recommend this program. i took courses and exams through the university of bologna, like an average italian student. like all experiences their are many interesting moments. italy's university system is one of those. for american students it is a shock at first, but with time, one finds him or herself comfortable with how things work at the university level.
bye, bye/ arrivederci from bologna
