A Day in the Life of a CAPA Sydney Student

Oct 5, 2018 9:34:00 AM / by Lorenzo Corazzin

In this week's post, Lorenzo discusses his daily routine in Sydney, from waking up, going to his internship and classes, to spending evenings with his new friends!

As a student and intern in Australia, many different things happen on a regular basis and especially being in a city like Sydney, my daily life is somewhat unpredictable. However, I have still developed a routine that is more or less regular across weekdays. Given the similarities between the United States and Australia it is not hard to have the same lifestyle you have at home.

As much as I sometimes can’t believe it, my experience in Australia, is more than just eating and exploring...I also have to work and go to class. Studying is a vital part of “studying abroad.” 😉 Lucky for me, I’m taking a class on a topic that I find interesting, and with a professor that used our location and experiences outside the classroom to enrich our lectures and make studying not so bad. 😉 For anyone looking to go to Sydney through CAPA, I 100% recommend Sports Marketing with Dr. Andy West.

If you know me, you already know that I’m a varsity athlete and a marketing major at the University of Pittsburgh, so you may think I’m a little biased towards the topic of Sports Marketing given those two things. But I promise, the class and the professor were just cool despite those things. One of the coolest things we did over the course of the semester was take a few trips to Sydney Olympic Park, home of the 2000 Summer Olympics. We learned about how Sydney won the right to host the games and turned what was once an abattoir, a brickworks, and wetlands into an Olympic venue. Even more interesting, we learned about the post-Olympics development. The area became its own flourishing suburb with places to live, work, eat, relax, see concerts, and of course, watch sports events.

Studying abroad might sometimes feel like vacation, but we can’t forget about our classes! I want to dedicate this post to academics and give some more insight on this side of the program!

To begin, many may have noticed that there is a limited variety of classes offered. However, even with a small number of options, it is easy to find one for your interest and degree. Students on the program all come from different backgrounds, and many of us have very different majors. On top of my internship, I am taking international finance, international economics, and literature courses. And even if we are taking the same classes, I think all of us are still able to extract something new and relatable to our interests.
