Coming Home!

I think that I may have had the most crazy series of return flights back the United States! My initial program in Europe in May was in Serbia, and so my round-trip flight to Europe was based out of the Belgrade airport. This meant that after my second program in Madrid wrapped up in July, I had to fly back to Serbia before then making my way back to the United States. I left Madrid on a Friday afternoon and flew to Paris. My flight...

Motivation for Studying Abroad in Florence Italy

Ciao, My name is Noah Dasinger and for the fall semester of 2018, I will be studying at the Lorenzo de Medici Institute, in Florence Italy. The motivation for deciding to study abroad has to do with my major which is art history and my interest in Renaissance Art. At 14 years old I traveled to Florence, it was my first time in Europe and when I turned northeast and saw the Duomo of the city, never before had my eyes seen beauty of...

Coming Home!

I am overwhelmed with emotion and feel extremely blessed for all of my experiences this summer. Getting on the plane leaving England was harder than I thought. Although I have missed my family and friends, I feel like a piece of my heart is left in New Zealand, Greece, and Oxford, England. I have learned so much about different kinds of life and how different people can be across the world. However, there is one thing that unites...

Shakespeare in Italy: Coming at you Live

Hi Friends, It is me again. Here to talk about a beautiful country called Italy. The “UA Abroad: Following Shakespeare Through Italy” program has been an especially unique experience. As opposed to most study abroad programs that remain in one city for one or several months, we moved into a new hotel or hostel each week and even took several day trips on free weekends. Because of this, I never quite had time for...
