I was very fortunate to take advantage of Bay Path's study abroad program in Florence, Italy. For a whole semester I studied alongside students from other U.S. colleges—we traveled together on weekends and holiday breaks to visit many of the fantastic sights of Italy. I gained valuable insight into the similarities and differences between American and Italian design and had the chance to assist with a creative project at an Italian design studio—it was a life-altering experience!" - Ruth, Interior Design: Residential & Commercial Major
