Pack your bags, Delta Gamma’s 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 and Naples & the Amalfi Coast. Get ready to see the world, earn college credit, and experience life abroad, all while making lifelong connections with your fellow Delta Gamma sisters. The bond you share will only grow stronger while traveling together. Expand your world and your sisterhood!
For Hope. For Strength. For Life.
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 Delta Gamma chapters all over North America.
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 Delta Gamma cause abroad.
The program will also feature visits to and volunteer opportunities at local organizations that focus on supporting the blind and visually impaired, Delta Gamma’s national philanthropic mission. Select Study Abroad students will engage in volunteer projects that give back to the city that gives us all so much.

“I simply cannot say enough good things about Select! I feel so incredibly lucky to have been able to travel through Italy with my sisters and the sweetest directors. Our month was truly magical as we learned from local artisans, courageously climbed the Duomo to the most breathtaking of views, and immersed ourselves in the rich culture and history of Florence. The Select Team became my family as they showed us around the ins and outs of Italy with open arms and a genuine passion to teach us all that they know. The staff truly took care of us and put every thought into making sure we had the best time possible. I feel that this program truly gave me an experience unlike any other as sisterhood, passion, and philanthropy bonded us all together from the very beginning. I learned so much and grew in ways that I didn’t even know I could. I am so grateful that Select is now a part of my Delta Gamma journey and college experience. If you are even considering this program, DO IT!! You will make memories and friendships to last a lifetime.
