Three days after our arrival to Paderno del Grappa, every student spent the day participating in the DaVinci Challenge.  This challenge is a team-building event that uses extreme trust exercises to help connect a group. The tasks were difficult, not only because we were all jet-lagged, but also because we hadn’t formally gotten to know each other […]

How Studying Abroad Will Turn You From a Diva to a Minimalist 05/25/17

When I was first told that it wasn’t a good idea for me to bring more than one suitcase and my backpack abroad, I thought it would be impossible. But I nearly lost my mind when I realized that said suitcase could only be 50 pounds. However, after sifting, sorting, an all nighter, and a […]

Getting Comfortable Being Uncomfortable 04/05/17

After 12 weeks, 7 countries, and 11 cities, it’s safe to say life has been anything but consistent. Three months ago I probably would’ve said that was a bad thing, but today I would argue that it has kept my life abroad interesting.

Italy and the US: Cultural Comparison 03/07/17

Before I came abroad, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect of Italy or even Europe in general. With European heritage and hearing about my Grandma’s childhood and parent’s visits, I just came to the assumption that it was an older version of the United States.
