How to Get the Most Out of Studying Abroad 06/22/17

Here is some advice for ensuring you get the most out of your experience: Say yes to going somewhere you never thought you would. Germany was not on my radar to visit while studying abroad this summer. The group of friends I made and had been traveling with wanted to go this past weekend so […]

5 Things I wish I Knew Before I Packed/While Getting Ready 06/22/17

After a few weeks of studying abroad with CIMBA, I have some advice for future student on what to pack and be prepared for. Everyone wears running shorts and large t-shirts to class. I made the mistake of not bringing enough of either. Honestly, once you think you’ve packed, take out 3-5 outfits – you […]

How to Maximize your Time at CIMBA 06/20/17

Managing time: Now managing time might seem like something easy but when you are abroad in another country it’s a lot different than being at home. One big difference is that when you arrive in Italy there is a large time difference, 6 hours for me and 7 hours for many others. When arriving on […]

Friends that Will Last a Lifetime 06/20/17

As I’ve said before, I’m the only one from my university who attended this program. With that being said, that has been one of my favorite parts about studying abroad. From week one, the group of people I met and became friends with were all from different universities. I think that was great because it […]

Planning a long travel weekend 06/06/17

Within the summer program, students are given 2 long weekends and 1 short weekend to go and travel wherever we would like. In doing this, it is sometimes hard to decide where you want to go, who to go with, and how to get there. One thing that we struggled with for our first weekend […]

7 Weekend Traveling Protips 05/30/17

During my first couple weeks at CIMBA, I have already learned a few things about traveling and have some advice for you: 1. Plan and book as early as possible. It will be cheaper, and there will be more available space at nicer/more convenient trains/planes/buses and hostels/Airbnb’s/hotels. Also, print your ticket early! 2. Pack the […]

‘Study’ in Study Abroad 05/30/17

Classes are in full swing, and they are not a joke. There really is a ‘study’ in ‘study abroad.’ In my economics classes we get to take field trips to companies that have local branches. This opportunity isn’t usually offered during full semester courses on my home campus. It provides an opportunity to directly apply […]

What to Expect in Your First Week at CIMBA 05/25/17

There were so many things I was excited for and so many things I was nervous about for my trip to Italy. But I would never know how anything would turn out until I actually got to experience life on the CIMBA campus. Currently, I am one week into the summer program, and I still […]

How Studying Abroad Will Turn You From a Diva to a Minimalist 05/25/17

When I was first told that it wasn’t a good idea for me to bring more than one suitcase and my backpack abroad, I thought it would be impossible. But I nearly lost my mind when I realized that said suitcase could only be 50 pounds. However, after sifting, sorting, an all nighter, and a […]

Arrival 05/19/17

The trip over has gone very well so far and morale is still high even after the 10-hour flight! Arriving at CIMBA has been very exciting so far. We took a tour of campus and partially of the city center in Paderno del Grappa earlier. During the tour, we learned about the town’s history and […]
