A Summer Abroad

by Madison

I've made it back to the United States and am starting to reflect on my past two months in Europe. I feel incredibly lucky to have been able to take this journey and learn about other cultures, while also learning a lot about myself. I also met fifteen other amazing people from across the United States. We were adapting to new cultures while also learning about each other.

Best. Weekend. Ever. @ Amalfi Coast

by Madison

A few of us decided to book a trip to the Amalfi Coast the second weekend we were in Rome. These are just a few highlight clips from our weekend, as well as some of our last nights in Rome. We stayed at a hostel in Sorrento, right on the water. On the first day of the trip, we went to Capri. We had to take a tram to get to the top of the mountain to take in the beautiful sights from the top of the mountain. We took a boat trip around the island and swam in the Blue Grotto.

Benvenuti a roma!

by Madison

We have arrived in Rome! Our apartment was about a five-minute walk to Vatican city and centrally located. Our first week started off by taking a guided tour of the biggest sites in the city such as the Spanish steps, the Pantheon, and the Trevi fountain. We all threw a coin into the fountain to make a wish that we would come back to Rome. We got to meet our student companion, who showed us around her city and showed us a little bit of the night life.

Returning Home

by Anna

I have been home for two days now, and it feels like I was just packing and preparing to start my adventure in Salamanca. One month felt like a week, and when the end of June rolled around, I was shocked that I had just finished a month in Spain. Studying abroad in Salamanca was one of the most rewarding and transforming experiences I have ever had.
