Memories of Rome

Post by Dominick Cura

I knew my time studying abroad was going to go by fast, but no one told me it was going to go by this fast!

In all honesty, I really am grateful though to have been in Rome, studying and exploring the city and the country even if just for a short time. There are a lot of good memories I have from my time there, but I am sure I will have to return soon for some new memories.

A Short but Sweet Time in Rome

Post by Dominick Cura

This certainly wasn't how I expected my semester abroad to end. It's surreal how we saw the situation of the coronavirus evolve in Italy right as we were in the country. Although I am glad to be home now with my family, there is so much I miss from my time in Rome. I will cherish the memories of the places, the people and the food of Rome.

Milan Fashion Week!

Post by Jenny Qian

Hi everyone! This was such an exciting week because it was the beginning of fashion week. Although I am not as into fashion as some of my friends here, it was definitely an experience. IES Abroad sent us a list of fashion shows and events to all the students which was very helpful. It basically impossible to get into the fashion shows, but many people still dress up and go outside the venue to see people. It was truly an experience.
