CSUF Students Experience Italy in the Summertime


June 12, 2003 :: No. 260

Twenty-two Cal State Fullerton students have begun an eight-week study program in Florence, Italy.

Through August, the program participants will attend such courses as “Fundamentals of Italian,” “Italian Cinema,” “The Renaissance” and “Contemporary European Society.”

The Florence program has been offered by Cal State Fullerton since summer 2002 and is open to all California State University students who have completed 30 units of study with a minimum 2.5 GPA. The students stay in a hotel near the CSU International Program Study Center in Florence.

“I think that our young people are going to go through a life-changing experience. The evidence of this is from the other students who have gone abroad — they are creating memories for the rest of their lives,” noted Angela Della Volpe, associate dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences.
