    Student Reflection

    Student Reflection

    Studying abroad in Pescara has been the highlight of my undergraduate coursework at Naz. While the city itself is more modern than the typical Italian city, Pescara offers the perks of a bustling city with the beauty of the Adriatic Sea. Because Pescara is a smaller city, less people spoke English which presented me the opportunity to truly try out my Italian language skills. As a music therapy major, I was thrilled to complete a clinical placement during my semester abroad. This experience was the perfect culmination of using my skills as both a music therapy and Italian student. Completing this long term, cross-cultural experience reaffirmed these passions that I have been pursuing since I was a freshman. - Juliana Joyce '19, Music Therapy major, Italian Minor
