Summer Adventures: Study Abroad

This past summer, I was fortunate enough to travel abroad with the University of Dayton communication department to Rome, Italy. Living in the eternal city for a month provided me with opportunities I never thought possible. Our apartments were a two-minute walk from the Vatican City, a place I had only seen on the Internet. Everyday on our way to class, we would walk by St. Peter’s Square and past the Roman guards to get to the Campo dei Fiore, a plaza 30 minutes away by foot.
Throughout the trip, myself and 40 other students were able to travel to Sorento, Capri, Assisi and Spoleto, some of the most beautiful locations in Italy. Along with taking classes, we were immersed into the Italian culture and learned things we never thought possible.
If you’d ask me to go back there tomorrow, I’d do it in a heartbeat.

During the trip, I took a video production class. Near the Colosseum was a favorite place to film because of the lighting, shadows and of course the gypsies!
