Hello! My name is Alessandro and I graduated from John Cabot University in 2015, majoring in Communications. Within my first year out of college, I moved to China.

The decision of whether they will go to university and where is both exhilarating and terrifying. I remember being extremely excited to leave high school…

  In Spring 2016, I did an Independent Study Abroad semester in Leiden, Holland. It was a wonderful experience which enhanced what I had been learning at JCU, and helped me decide what I want to specialize in later on. The first question which probably comes to mind when you think about studying abroad is, “Where should I go?” John…
