Professor Sarah Shapiro, through Cumberland County College, is offering an educational experience with a trip abroad to Italy. This is the third year that Cumberland County College has offered students to study abroad due to the rich history that Italy has to offer.

The eight-day trip will take students through Rome and Florence. Professor Shapiro, who has been to Rome five times herself, is also offering the opportunity to friends and family of CCC students.

For any students that are interested the trip will be held the week of May 23 to May 30. The cost for this trip is $3,025 and $3,205 for any students 30 years of age or older. $100 will be taken off for any repeat EF travelers. These same rates apply to friends and family.
