We invite you to visit the GEO center in Siena, Italy, from April 29 – May 1, 2019! All in-country travel, lodging, meals, and Open House activities are funded for participants who apply by February 28, 2019. 

Site visit participants will explore the host city, meet GEO staff, including the on-site director, Silvia Minucci, and tour GEO facilities and observe ongoing academic programs at the location.

Siena offers programming in Wine Marketing, Media Studies, Italian Language & Culture, Studio Art, Food & Culture & Pre-Business throughout the academic year in Spring, Summer, and Fall with service-learning options on certain programs. Customized program opportunities are also available at the center.
