Choosing to study abroad in Rome with CEA was definitely a great choice! The CEA-staff prepared a nice and fun orientation, in which explained their expectations for the semester, how classes and excursions would work and also gave the students several housing and safety tips.
I would like to point out their housing choice because I was very positively surprised by it. The apartment I stayed in was very modern, clean and organized. I shared it with five other girls and each two had their own bedroom. The kitchen came with basic utensils and for our first few days in the city, the CEA team provided a “Prima Spesa” (First Shop) with pasta, tomato sauce, olive oil, etc., for us to cook and have our first "family" meal together while getting to know one another.
Additionally, I really liked the Photography class at CEA because it incorporated in-class workshops with outdoors classes, which allowed students to practice their photography skills in several different environments and also get to know more their study abroad city.
I would recommend this program for students who want to get out of their comfort zone, visit new places and make friends, but who still want the possibility of being in contact with the American environment, since classes are taught in English and majority of the students are Americans.

I had the pleasure of studying abroad in Florence, Italy this past winter through CEA. Although I was studying thousands of miles away from my hometown in North Carolina, the CEA team made my arrival, transition, and overall experience comfortable and exciting. The accommodations CEA provided went beyond the classroom. They offered safe housing in desirable city spaces, alternative scholarship opportunities and travel vouchers, out-of-the-box extracurricular activities, and 24/7 personal assistance if necessary. I HIGHLY recommend traveling with CEA and would seriously consider traveling with CEA again in the future.

I studied abroad in Granada, Spain through a Spanish-intensive program led by CEA. The CEA on-site staff were excellent in suggesting side-trips, as well as helping us find great study spaces in Granada. I was able to immerse myself in the culture, especially because I stayed with a host family on-site. I couldn't have asked for a better experience with CEA, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to explore a new culture with a program that matches your preferences.

Studying abroad in Prague through CEA was an amazing experience that I highly recommend. I felt safe throughout the city, especially at my university. My favorite times were experiencing day-to-day life, doing homework, exploring cafes, restaurants, and shops. I made friendships that have carried over back to the States and memories with these friends that I will forever hold dear to me. Traveling from Prague is easy as it is so centrally located and traveling most weekends allowed me to explore all over Europe.

My start to my study abroad program was far from perfect. I had left personal problems pending at home, I was having health problems, and I was overall having trouble adapting to the big city. A friend I made through the program recommended I spoke to our program director about everything that was going on. The next day, I emailed our program director and she set up a meeting; she took me out for coffee and we spoke about everything that I was dealing with. She guided me every step of the way and checked up on me through out the semester to make sure I was well taken care of. The CEA staff took us in as part of their family and showed us Madrid through their eyes. I can't wait to go back and visit!
