Just a Normal Sunday… Climbing a Mountain 03/06/12

“So, what’d you do this weekend?” Oh, not much.  Just climbed a mountain. Yes, that’s right.  I climbed a mountain last weekend.  And not just any mountain – Paderno’s own Mt. Grappa!  The 5,823-foot-tall mountain rises up in the background of our campus (and dominates the view from my dorm room window!), and since my […]

Traveling Europe at its Finest 03/02/12

Here at CIMBA, we’re offered more opportunities to travel than most programs. Students are given the chance to travel on the weekends, as well as on our two travel breaks which consist of 10-days. Throughout my first travel break, I hit the destinations of Paris, Amsterdam, and Berlin. Each destination had its own atmosphere. Picking different cities for […]

The City that Stole my Heart! 02/28/12

Last week was our first travel week and it was amazing! With a whole week off from classes, we were able to set off to explore Europe. I went to four different cities: Bern and Geneva in Switzerland, and Toledo and Madrid in Spain. The best part about my trip was that each city had […]

Traveling Europe, Made Easy 02/27/12

Last week marked the first of two nine-day travel breaks we are lucky enough to receive here at CIMBA, and I can honestly say that it was the best week of my life thus far.  In that short time, I visited Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, and London, and while each city was different from the rest, […]

Coffee Time 02/16/12

So it’s time for a confession, I am a total coffee addict! I have worked at a coffee shop in Minnesota for 4 and a half years, but I have been drinking coffee for a lot longer than that. Coming to Italy, I knew that I was in for a whole new kind of coffee […]

Date With a Professor: Pasta Making! 02/16/12

While the ample travel time is clearly a perk of the CIMBA program, I’ve come to find that the good folks here at CIMBA strive to provide cool, cultural opportunities during our time on campus as well.  One such endeavor, “Date with a Professor,” occurs twice during the semester and allow students to take a […]

Slovenia: My New Favorite Place 02/09/12

“Slovenia?  I’ve never heard of it.” This was generally the reaction I got whenever I told someone about my trip to Slovenia – and I must admit that, before this program, I was completely oblivious to Slovenia’s existence as well.  After visiting the country this weekend, however, I can now say that not only does […]

A Weekend in Florence. 02/06/12

Buon Appetito! 02/06/12

One thing that I have learned since being here is that CIMBA is not your average study abroad program! They provide so many amazing opportunities outside of just normal classes for things like leadership development, cultural experiences, and things that are just plain fun. This week we had an event that encompassed all three of […]
