Select Study Abroad is proud to announce two summer study abroad sessions in Florence, Italy and two Mother and Daughter Trips for members of the Alpha Delta Pi sorority. Get ready to see the world, earn college credit, and experience life abroad, all while making lifelong connections with your fellow ADPi sisters. The bond you share will only grow stronger while traveling together. Expand your world and your sisterhood!
 

 
First. Finest. Forever.
Everyday group activities cover the wonders of Florence, from private tours of the famous Uffizi galleries to artisanal shoe and jewelry making demonstrations. Touch, taste, and feel all that Italy has to offer with your closest sisters and new friends from ADPi chapters all over the country.
During weekend trips you will explore the many gems of the Italian peninsula, including Rome, Venice, Pisa, Lucca, Siena, Cinque Terre, and more! See the Roman Colosseum, climb the Duomo of Siena, stroll over the Rialto Bridge in Venice, bike over the 16th century walls of Lucca, snap your favorite Leaning Tower picture, and try every Italian delicacy you can imagine.
There is so much to look forward to as Select Study Abroad includes more travel and activities than any other program.

Excited yet?
Enroll in one or two academic courses worth 3 college credits each at the prestigious Istituto Lorenzo de’Medici in Florence. All courses are taught in English with the exception of Italian language courses. From Art History to Photography and from Fashion Design to Italian Cooking, immerse yourself in the amazing culture happening right before your eyes.

Just wait. It gets better…
You and your sisters will make Florence your home away from home. Located in the heart of the historical center of the city, your residence and school are just steps away from the vibrant summer life that Italians have become famous for. Wander through the San Lorenzo market, catch a parade outside the Cathedral, or grab a caffé with your sisters in Piazza Signoria. Everything the city has to offer is easily within reach.

Taking the ADPi cause abroad.
The program will also feature visits to and volunteer opportunities at the local Ronald McDonald House (Casa Ronald Firenze), Alpha Delta Pi’s national philanthropic organization. Bring cheer to local children as they recover from lifesaving operations.

AlexaBeing a member of ADPi is already an amazing college experience, but being able to go abroad with your sisters is an experience like no other. I met so many sisters from all over the country and it seemed like we had been friends our whole lives by the end of the first week. Florence is the perfect city to stay in. You never run out of places to go, art to see, delicious food to eat, and you really feel at home in this city. Being able to see Rome, Venice, and the Tuscan countryside on the weekends was also amazing. I will never forget my first gondola ride or exploring the Colosseum at night. I really can’t imagine my first trip to Italy without Select Study Abroad. Carrie and Kellin know so much about Italy, they tell you everything about Italy along the way, and take you to the best restaurants. I am always telling my sisters to go on this trip; it is a once in a lifetime experience and I will never forget the memories made.
