|It was surprising how quickly Cortona began to feel like home. It was a great place to learn about both Italian culture and business.|
|Ian Robert Thompson, Maymester 2017 Participant|
|The places we got to visit on our scheduled trips and our free day were some of the most incredible places I have ever seen.|

|What were the most significant take-aways from your experience?|
|It was really awesome to be immersed in the Italian culture by being in such a small town in Italy. Cortona was amazing; the people were friendly, charming, and fun to be around. I enjoyed the contrast of Cortona with the larger cities like Florence and Rome. Being able to actually see ancient structures, exquisite architecture, and world-renowned pieces of art was absolutely incredible. This was an experience I will never forget.|
