“The Wells College Florence Program was absolutely amazing. You took all of the necessary steps in preparing me for my semester in Italy, as well as made me feel at home when I got there. I could not have asked for anything more. It was the best experience of my life and I would give anything to relive it. Italy will always be in my mind and in my heart.” —L.K., Denison University
