Day ‘tre’: such a neat day visiting a local Catholic school, recycling center, and University of UNIMORE. The private Catholic school consisted of a lower level of kindergarten students (ages 3-5), as well as a second level with primary students (6-10) and secondary students (11-13). Whereas the United States has grades K-12, Italy sets it up quite differently. They have grades 1-5 for primary school, grades 1-3 for...

Their hospitality for visitors is out of this...

Germany Study Abroad in Action!

I had so much fun exploring Strasbourg during our day trip. Yes, my feet did hurt by the end of the day, but exploring France was worth it! I got to tour the city center via Segway and I climbed the 300+ steps to the top of the Notre Dame castle. I also just walked around Strasbourg and explored- and of course I had gelato! And some super tasty cheesecake! I also had an amazing lunch of pork puff pastry and pasta…wow! I love...
