"Studying abroad in Florence, Italy, was the greatest year of my life thus far. From visiting Vatican City to listening to Catholic mass in Latin, Pepperdine has provided me with the opportunity to be exposed to so many new experiences. It's not often that you find a school that is challenging academically, located in such a prime location, and lets you travel the world with your fellow students who become lifelong friends. Through this experience, I have become a much more informed, engaged, and independent citizen of the world."
