Student Reflection

Understanding history through travel becomes understanding yourself and others. Cultures change, and time tells, and yet also hides truth. Only by experience were we really able to scratch the surface of Italy’s diversity. For five weeks, the program was remarkably in-depth as we walked ruins, celebrated long-standing traditions still practiced today, and questioned regimes. It is something I will never forget. - June Logigian '18
