PADERNO DEL GRAPPA
The undergraduate campus is located in the quaint, Italian town of Paderno del Grappa, which is about an hour north of Venice (look at how easy it would be to travel around Italy and Europe!).
At the base of picturesque Mount Grappa, the program is located on the campus of the Istituto Filipin, a private Italian boarding school.
With a population of 2000 or so, Paderno del Grappa is small enough to allow you to enjoy quiet beauty and close enough to other larger cities to enjoy all of Italy and Europe in general.
The campus offers students the cultural experience of living in a small Italian community while providing access to the celebrated art and historical treasures of the Veneto region. The full-service facility includes classrooms, a cafeteria, residence halls, computer lab, library, laundry and modern athletic facilities.

Students must meet the requirements of K-State Education Abroad.
Students live in dormitory style housing. Both single and double rooms are available; each room is equipped with a private bathroom. Students may request particular roommates through the roommate selection form. Students with no roommate preference will be assigned to all-male or all-female rooms. The program fee includes a meal plan. This consists of breakfast, lunch and dinner in the cafeteria on campus while classes are in session. Meals are served cafeteria style while still maintaining the Italian tradition of a first course of pasta or rice, a second course of meat served with a vegetable or salad, and dessert. Most students travel during the long weekends, so food service is not available during these times. When traveling, students are responsible for providing their own meals.
