Sorrento is an amazing town. Even when I go else where in Italy I am always excited to come back to Sorrento. The university location is incredible and the dorms are really nice (with incredible views).

My experience at Sant'Anna was without a doubt a unique experience. I was placed in a internship that was new to me. Though the internship was not as expected I still feel as though I learned a lot in my time here.

Stephanie Kesselem

This experience was well worth it and I would recommended it to any student considering a Study Abroad Internship. Sant' Anna was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the area and the different places they placed us for our internships.
