Pack your bags, Sigma Kappa’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 Sigma Kappa sisters. The bond you share will only grow stronger while traveling together. Expand your world and your sisterhood!
Live With Heart.
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 Sigma Kappa 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 Sigma Kappa cause abroad.
The program will also feature visits to and volunteer opportunities at local organizations that focus on gerontology and environmental awareness. Select Study Abroad students will engage in volunteer projects that give back to the city that gives us all so much.

“With the help of Select Study Abroad, I was able to travel outside of the country for the first time this summer and create a home away from home in Italy with other sorority women from across the United States. I had the opportunity to study abroad as part of the Ambassador Program and learn about the rich history that Florence has to offer from our incredible directors — Carrie, Kellin, Hannah, and Sean. Their insight and experience enhanced each adventure that we shared together and taught us knowledge that we could never gain in a classroom. Sometimes the most memorable moments weren’t always the weekend getaways to Rome or Venice, but the friendships I made while I was there. Getting weekly (sometimes daily) gelato together, making our own pacts, and bringing back Gusto’s pizza to watch The Bachelorette in one of our rooms were some of the most unforgettable times. It’s true that this trip will be nothing like you’ve ever experienced and I’m forever grateful for the friendships I’ve made and the memories I can cherish for years to come.
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 Sigma Kappa.
Travel with heart!
