Student Stories from Abroad
The one-on-one tutorial style was an invaluable way to improve my close reading skills, improve my writing, and channel my creativity into essay writing in a completely new way. Being able to study at such an amazing university that bursts with intellectual creativity was also inspiring, in and of itself.
Studying in Rome allowed me to reflect on what I studied in my literature courses and develop as a writer.
As part of my English class we took a trip to the Protestant Cemetery and saw Keats and Shelley's graves, which was a very cool experience.
Even though my experience was primarily focused on my Spanish development, I still think that it played a major role in my development as an English major as well.
I was able to experience a culture that had influenced so many of the writers I study as an English major.
