Experiencing Art in Rome

I’ve been in Rome for just a couple of days to study art and art history and have already experienced so much. We’ve been to the colosseum, the Vatican, and today we went to the Palazzo Barberini where I got to see some Caravaggio paintings! It was a once in a life...

Korean Kafe’s!

Cafe’s are very popular in South Korea. I felt like I couldn’t turn a corner without seeing at least five of them. As a coffee lover I was very excited about this aspect of South Korea. However, I ended up feeling very overwhelmed by the amount of coffee...

“I live here”

Moving to another country seems like an insurmountable task, and for me, it has not been a walk in the park. Despite the fact that I have spent over half a year preparing, and have had support from my parents, UA study abroad advisor, program chairwoman, and abroad...
Arriving in Roma!

Arriving in Roma!

Never in my life had I sat in a plane for over 10 hours, let alone flown across an ocean. Surprisingly, I did not expect to be nervous when arriving in a new country despite being unfamiliar with its language and culture. At first, when descending into Rome, I was...
