What are you most excited for during your study abroad semester?
This isn’t just a trip to Florence, Italy, I’ll be living and going to school in a strange place with people that aren’t related to me and it’s going to be scary—but also very exciting. Out of everything I’ll be doing while I’m there, the most exciting part will probably be the traveling and the classes I’ll be taking. I’m excited to see how my professors are going to incorporate the Italian setting but also shake things up in the classroom because we won’t be working on traditional coursework. It will be interesting to see how everything is going to work out and come together in the end.
