Information session for Italy Thursday, January 16 at 4:00-5:00

Hello all, the next information session is fast upon us --

An additional information/food session will be Monday, Feb. 3 at the downtown Community Food Co-op at 6:30. Fee $6-8.

 Italy program includes

  • 14 nights lodging
  • Most meals
  • 7 excursions, including 2 into the countryside (biodynamic farm, wine estate)
  • Daily instruction in Italian
  • Classes at the University of Florence
Grand Total: $4,500 payable in installments

Please note the following:
  • EESP  helps direct people to financial aid — over half the students have financial aid who enroll in the program.
  • Excursions are not given in great detail, but they include in Tuscany: Chianti country, castle winery (with tasting and meal in the courtyard), hands-on ceramics/pottery classes, cooking classes, biological farm. An optional Switzerland excursion also is available (cost, additional).
  • The weekend in between the two weeks of instruction and excursions is free, but sometimes we go as a group to Assisi, Perugia (this is another region — Umbria), or in Cinque Terra (region: Liguria) along the Italian riviera. 
  • Also included in the price are two optional field trips in Whatcom County and on Lopez Island, once we return.
  • Additional credits are available (you can talk to me about this).
