The summer of 2013 was an adventure of a lifetime as I experienced the culture of Italy and was exposed to a hands on education. For anyone in college who is considering a study abroad experience I hope that the fear of the unknown or the intimidation of cost do not deter you away from not only knowledge, but the beauty in submersion in a new and unknown culture. I will be graduating from Vanguard University in May 2014 and that experience will always be the highlight of my college experience.
