Pack your bags, Gamma Phi Beta is going to Italy!
Select Study Abroad is proud to announce a summer study abroad session in Florence, Italy and Mother and Daughter Trips for sorority members in Florence & Tuscany, Naples & the Amalfi Coast, and the Italian Riviera. Get ready to see the world, earn college credit, and experience life abroad, all while making lifelong connections with your fellow Gamma Phi Beta sisters. The bond you share will only grow stronger while traveling together. Expand your world and your sisterhood!
Shine on in Italy.
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 Gamma Phi Beta 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.
Enroll in one or two academic courses worth 3 college credits each at the prestigious Istituto Lorenzo de’Medici in Florence or the credit-free Italian Ambassador Program. All college credit courses are taught in English with the exception of Italian language courses. The Italian Ambassador Program involves on-site learning and activities led by the expert Select Study Abroad team. From Art History to Religious Studies and from Fashion 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 Gamma Phi Beta cause abroad.
The program will also feature visits to and volunteer opportunities at local organizations. Select Study Abroad students will engage in volunteer projects that give back to the city that gives us all so much.
It’s pretty simple.
Then spread the word!

“We don’t even know where to begin trying to explain how amazing our Select Study Abroad experience was. If we are being honest, we never open emails from internationals since we get multiple every day, but the one time we open one we saw this amazing opportunity to travel abroad with Panhellenic women from all over the country – including mothers. We are so thankful to have received this email because if not, we would have never had the life – changing opportunity to go abroad together to a country where our family originates from and spend time with our incredible mom. We have gone on quite a bit of family vacations, but there was something about bonding with each other and our mom in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Carrie and Kellin were extremely knowledgeable, fun, and felt like family at the end of the week. Jumping off boats and swimming together, spending hours exploring, and amazing meals together in such a short time led us to bawling our eyes out, because these people were so special to us by the end. There is something about sorority women and their drive to empower other women and impact the world, even if it is not in a typical sorority setting. This program perfectly aligns with Gphi’s mission statement, “Inspiring the highest type of womanhood.” We are so thankful to have the opportunity to go on another trip to the Amalfi Coast next year not only with each other and our mom, but the amazing Select team and also multiple families that we met along the way. We cannot say enough good things about Select!
For more information on dates, pricing, and what exactly is included in the cost, see our Dates & Cost page. And as always, feel free to call us at 310.818.3246 to speak to one of our Directors for more information about this amazing opportunity! In just a few months, you could be making memories and friendships that last a lifetime.
We are also very excited to announce our exclusive Mother and Daughter Trips planned especially for the mothers and daughters of Gamma Phi Beta.
Shine on in Italy!
