Big surprise. I wonder what this study cost.

Incidentally, in visiting Florence as an adult, I found that the Gonzaga-in-Florence students had acquired a bad reputation for drinking their brains out and puking all over the cobblestone streets. The other criticism is that the majority (not all) did very little to actually immerse themselves in a foreign culture, but instead just hung out with other Americans the majority of the time.

Maybe it is different now?

I'd say the article and your thoughts/observations are correct.

My tolerance hasn't been close to the same since...LOL. Looking back, I kind of wish I emersed myself in the culture more, but it was still the best year of my life.
