Study abroad in Milan, a city full of innovation and inspiration, from “The Last Supper,” one of the most influential works of the Renaissance, to Fashion Week.
Witness some of the world’s finest performers at Teatro alla Scala, the world-renowned opera house, observe fashion executives to see how successful businesses are run, and, of course, find your favorite spots for pizza and gelato when you study in Milan.
No matter what program you choose, your Milan study abroad experience will be a cultural adventure.
The last time I set foot in Europe was spring of my senior year in 2016. I traveled to Santorini, Athens, Mykonos, and Turkey with my best friends on a two star cruise. The rooms were as large as a bathroom (and that’s a generous description), the majority of our fellow passengers were senior citizens from China who could not speak much English (if any) and we had little to no cell coverage- it was the one of the best weeks of my life.
Returning from an exciting semester living in a new country can be tough. However, the lessons learned can help you in the rest of your life, and your experiences can you lead you to spend more of your life abroad, as well.
As I’m getting ready to go home, I’ve been reflecting on my experience abroad: highs, lows, everything in between. I imagine this is true of every student nearing the end of their time living in another country. So, what is it that has made my semester as a music student in Milan feel so unique?
