When in Rome

Italy: home to gondolas, the
first pizza, the World Cup soccer
champions and the largest num-
ber of University students doing
a study abroad program.
The University's Office of
International Programs offers
six different study abroad
opportunities in either Florence
or Rome. U.S. professors teach
all courses offered in Italy in
English, with the exception of
Italian language. Study Abroad
Adviser Heidi Spence said the
classes mimic those of the Uni-
versity better than other study
abroad programs.
"It'sattractivetostudentsthat
want to study in English but still
want a taste of the host language
and culture," Spence said.
LSA senior Layne Scherer
studied in one of the Florence
programs last year through
the office and enjoyed the

opportunity to supplement her
classes at the University with
real-life experiences in Flor-
ence.
"In America we do get really
self-centered and going abroad
and opening up of different cul-
tures makes people better world
citizens," Scherer said. "It's
importantto remember that, and
it's hard to get that feelingliving
in America your entire life."
The classes offered include
Italian language, a music pro-
gram focusing on vocal pieces,
classic studies and a number of
rotating courses. This is because
the professors in Italy change
annually. Spence said this results
in an opportunities for students
with varying majors to study
abroad.
Scherer said she would sug-
gest studying abroad to other
undergraduates.

"You can learn as much as
you want in the class, but the
slides and pictures don't really
capture the true effects," she
said.
Students who live in Flor-
ence through the study abroad
program live in a villa owned
by an Italian count. Spence said
the students live in surround-
ings complete with profession-
ally manicured lawns and daily
meals prepared by a gourmet
chef.
The Villa's location, 10 miles
away from Florence, left some-
thing to be desired by its occu-
pants. Scherer said she felt
separated from the city and
would recommend a different
program for other art history
majors who want more than a
taste of the products of the Ital-
ian Renaissance.
