Study Abroad program immerses students in 3,000 years of Roman and Italian history

This year’s Study Abroad program featured Italy, bringing students face to face with historical and artistic achievements from nearly 3,000 years of history. Group leaders Dr. Vincenzo Piazza and Dr. Christopher Whitaker, respectively professors of Humanities and Geography, guided 15 students in the 9-day tour May 15-23. With Rome the main attraction, the group also made one-day excursions to Florence and Pompeii. Daily cultural study spanned each day with visits to many iconic cultural sites such as the Coliseum, the Pantheon, the Roman Forum, the Vatican, the Borghese Gallery in Rome, the Uffizi in Florence and the ruins of Pompeii, a museum "in open sky."
