La aula: the classroom
Having class four times a week every week might seem daunting to many students, but classes in my study abroad program are not so typical. Most of my classes include many site visits to historical monuments and buildings all around Rome.
Rome is a beautiful city with a very rich history. Therefore, our professors utilize our setting to teach us more about the history firsthand. Going to class isn’t that hard when your classroom is an adventure in itself.
