COTC Students Travel Abroad

Since 2009, several Central Ohio Technical College students have been given the unique opportunity to experience Italy.  The Italian Immersion Program, funded by the generosity of J. Gilbert and Louella H. Reese, takes selected students on a two-week excursion to Reggello, Italy, where they stay with host families to experience Italian culture firsthand.  The program is a unique opportunity for students to take learning to a higher level, travelling outside of the classroom.  In addition to their tour of Italy in July 2018, COTC and the surrounding community will host youth from Reggello, in the summer of 2019.  The Italian Immersion program is the product of generous donors looking to strengthen the global experience of students at COTC.
