Ramapo Success Story

“I spent countless hours in preparation for studying abroad. I searched through the many programs available, considered the different possibilities and classes that I could take, and met all of my academic requirements. I set goals for myself and in turn received many personal benefits from the program, such as, becoming more independent, having new experiences and developing new relationships. I learned about other cultures, how to adapt to different settings and situations, and about the world around me as well as myself. Studying abroad at the Florence University of the Arts in Italy was a once in a lifetime opportunity and I will cherish that experience for the rest of my life.” – Marissa Torr ’11 graduated with a degree in Communications with a concentration in Journalism and a minor in Italian. She studied abroad in the fall of 2009.
