Most enlightening and exciting experience I've ever had. Never met better people or been to a better place!

Studying abroad helped me branch out and make friends not only from other majors at UGA but also from around the world.

 

Maymester 2016 Participant
The Viticulture program provides an excellent opportunity to become more interested in wine and learn how to properly taste, smell, and evaluate it. Useful for any major and very applicable to daily life.

 

Maymester 2016 Participant
Taking this study abroad program is easily the highlight of my college experience. Everyone on the trip became friends you know you would have long after the trip was over. I was able to see sights that previously I had only dreamed of seeing.

 

Maymester 2016 Participant
This will be the highlight of my college experience. I learned more about myself in the last 3 and a half weeks then I thought was possible.

 

Maymester 2016 Participant
Cortona is now my home away from home away from home. The town is fabulous and the people are the best. I wouldn't trade this experience for anything.

 

Maymester 2017 Participant
Cortona was an awesome experience--getting to know the town itself was amazing, as well as taking trips outside of Cortona and into Tuscany.

Good food. Good views. Cortona!

A perfect program for any major, even for those without any interest in wine. You'll leave with a great appreciation for wine, and the connections and experiences you'll have in the town of Cortona during the course will last you a lifetime
