  • January in Florence - Florence University of the Arts
    I met so many amazing people on this journey in Italy. I traveled to six different cities in three weeks with people in the CIS Abroad group. We came from all types of backgrounds but had one thing in common, which was to see places that change our perspective on life. This experience changed my outlook on life and gave me the chance to experience another culture.
