When preparing to go abroad this past semester, I had the chance to talk to people about everything from what to expect to what to do – from others who went abroad, who traveled to Europe, and even CIMBA alumni from my home university. However, there was one question I always asked, to which I never […]

It’s more than “Just Studying Abroad” 04/13/18

As my time at CIMBA starts to drastically wind down, it is easy for me to reflect on the weeks that I have spent in Paderno del Grappa. It is funny to look back at my first night in Italy when I was jet lagged beyond belief but still made an effort to get to […]
