Urbino was everything and more than I could have imagined when I pictured the Italian study abroad “experience”. Its charming cobblestone paths and lively piazza welcomed me, and my excitement about studying here grew even stronger as I got to know other students at the University of Urbino. Urbino is one of those places that, when you’re here, you can’t get enough of it, and when you’re gone, you long to go back “home”. I am grateful to have improved my media skills, from Adobe Illustrator to photojournalism, in such a picturesque and dynamic city. Thank you to my professors, mentors, and the city of Urbino for challenging and inspiring me this summer.
