Paderno del Grappa, Italy: An Explorer’s Guide 09/18/15

Hello from Paderno! Well, we’ve officially completed two full days of life here at CIMBA and I’m happy to report that it’s all going well so far. We’re recovering (slowly) from jet lag, enjoying Italian food at meal times, learning each other’s names, and basking in the beauty of Italy. As you may already know, the […]

Cabs and trains and buses, oh my! 03/04/15

As I’ve mentioned in previous blog posts, we traveled frequently in the three months we lived in Italy and loved every minute. But it’s worth mentioning how different travel is for a study abroad student in Europe in comparison to travelling in the United States. Don’t worry, I’ll also provide some helpful advice to those […]

Food experience here 11/20/14

Today, I am going to write about the food experience here. Usually, what I have in CIMBA is like this; first plate-pasta risotto or soup, second plate-meat and vegetables, desert and fruits. Since there are a number of menus in first and second plates, I am satisfied with meals on campus. I could learn how […]

Forever a Tourist 10/29/14

It’s about time that we went to Venice, don’t you think? It required a short and simple train ride. I heard some conflicting reviews about Venice, so I went in with an open attitude. My consensus is….it’s average. I know, a little disappointing. I think if you are ever residing close to Venice you should […]

Venice: a good time to sleep? 09/16/14

I have finally arrived to this beautiful campus! After some long plane rides I’ve made it. Unfortunately I have been fighting to stay awake with the six hour difference. I took British Airways from Philadelphia to London and London to Venice. (Well technically Finnair for the first flight- owned by BA). I had a really […]

Moral of the story: Just do it! 06/09/14

Here, there and everywhere! I have been so busy talking about my exciting weekends, I forgot to mention how amazing simple week nights can be. I remember my first afternoon that I had “free” when I was in Italy. A group of friends and I had a few hours to study and finish our homework […]

My Final Days At CIMBA 04/03/14

Last night, we had our third and final CIMBA gourmet dinner. Every semester, CIMBA schedules three gourmet dinners, and the students and staff dress up and eat a nice, authentic Italian meal. I attended all of the gourmet dinners they offered this semester and I can honestly say some of my favorite memories were made […]

Saturday Hike on Mount Grappa 03/11/14

As the weekend approached, I became more and more thankful that I wasn’t obligated to pack a weekend’s worth of clothes and toiletries into my Osprey 46 backpack. This past weekend, my friends and I decided to stay back from all of the chaos of traveling and enjoy a short, quiet weekend in Paderno. We […]

Twice a semester, students are given the opportunity to partake in an evening with a professor, known as EWAP. Students and professors have the option to make pizza or pasta, eat a tex-mex dinner, or do a wine tasting. Last Monday I did my first evening with a professor and decided I wanted to learn […]

An Overview of Campus Life and Dinner with a Local Italian Family! 02/03/14

Things are finally beginning to settle down around campus – let me rephrase that – a somewhat consistent schedule is beginning to emerge.  The first three weeks at CIMBA were the most engaging and eye-opening weeks I have experienced.  I think it is impossible to convey the exact feelings during these three weeks without experiencing […]
