Michelle (right), an #AlphaPhi student at Eastern Illinois, studied abroad with us in 2015: "As I began my journey in Italy with Select Study Abroad and with complete strangers, I didn't know what to expect out of it. Sitting here today as I write this, I can honestly say that it was everything I wanted and more. Throughout my month in Italy, I met some of the greatest people who I still stay in touch with today, fell madly in love with art and history, ate some of the BEST food and gelato I have ever had in my life, and experienced some of the most breathtaking places and views a pair of eyes could see. When my time in Italy began to come to a close, of course I was extremely sad but at the same time I felt at ease. I realized I felt this way because I was so incredibly grateful that I even got the chance to take on this amazing opportunity Select Study Abroad offers to sorority girls. So thank you, Select and I will end with this - "Because I met you, I have been changed for good."" Right back at you, Michelle.
