IN OUR STUDENTS' WORDS
"The Hofstra in Venice program was a life-changing experience. I had the opportunity to live with Venetians and learn about their traditions in a city that is unlike any other in the world! I had the fortune to travel to other cities such as Rome, Florence, Pompeii, Milan, and Lugano, Switzerland! As I look back on this three-week journey, I realize that the program led me to discover a new sense of self."
