What People are Saying

Here are a few things people have said about AIA.

“…for over 10 years, we have worked with many providers
throughout Rome. AlA is, in my opinion, without a doubt the best of these. Their hands-on approach, quick responsiveness to student and faculty problems, and general personalized approach has made our programs better than ever.“
“From meeting our group at the airport to arranging for
housing, tours, guides, and in country transportation they go “above and beyond” in support and assistance for students and faculty.“

“AIA takes great care to provide the highest administrative
support and student services to its clients. Its management, staff and instructors are always available to students and faculty alike, and they are careful to address the needs of multiple programs equally and rapidly.”

“AIA demonstrated time and again that it was adaptable and
flexible in meeting our needs and in dealing in the Italian cultural context.…[AIA] served not only as a service provider, but as a trusted and experienced advisor as we designed our program.”

“As a faculty leader it was a great relief to be able to rely on local professionals to advise the students in regards to everything from safety concerns to how to buy bus tickets.”
“…[AIA] offers much more than standard study abroad services…. the AIA staff was always available and responsive to any and all student concerns. Their dedication allowed me to focus on teaching. The professionalism and experience of the director and staff, coupled with their sensitivity to American students’ needs and desires ensured that our students had a life-changing experience in Rome.”
