I want to thank the International Education Fund for the scholarship that was vital to my attendance at the Spring 2016, UTSA COLFA – Study Abroad Program (Urbino).
I cannot say enough how exciting and educational the experience was. If anyone would ask, I can definitely say that every student should make the opportunity to participate in such a program.
The educational benefits are priceless, and the ability to learn and see another culture is beyond words. I am glad that the classes were substantive, and not just ones that you show up and get a grade. The professors made us work for the grades. By doing so, the program in my opinion, was a success. The ability to visit places discussed in class and being able to see the art, architecture, and culture is a once in a lifetime experience.
Thank you again for the scholarship. I can’t say enough about how exciting, educational, and fun the experience was.
