The Universidad del Este is pleased to announce that seven of its students will be participating in a special study tour to Italy from June 26th through July 12th of 2012. In preparation for this wonderful international experience this summer, the students took two semesters of Basic Italian during the 2011-2012 academic year. The study tour is being organized by their professor, Dr. Dominique Forina.
As part of the study tour, the students will have the opportunity to participate in an intensive immersion program in Italy that includes italian clases, visits to museums and historical sites, sculpting and Italian cooking workshops, among other activities. The program will also feature a “Roman Night” activity, which will recreate a typical feast in Ancient Rome, with clothing, furniture and food from the era.
During their trip, the group plans to share photos and stories about their experiences in Italy here on the Universidad del Este International Education Blog.
