A representative from an organization named Studio Art Centers International opened the meeting by sharing that studying abroad in Italy was one of the best experiences of his life. Various options were then presented to students of locations and different programs to study while they lived in different countries.

Some of these options included trips to Spain, Costa Rica, the United Kingdom and India. While studying in these countries, students can take classes in a broad range of subjects including art, film, business and anthropology.
