University of Vermont
Fall 16 Ambassador
When I began researching study abroad opportunities, I limited myself to looking within the Economics and Mathematics majors. This path led me to large, impersonal programs in English-speaking countries. None of these programs struck me as a unique experience and I’m so thrilled I allowed myself to think outside the box. The Umbra Food Studies Program has been perfect for me, and Perugia has provided a truly authentic experience. Unfortunately, for the same reasons Perugia is so authentic, it is also unknown in the U.S.. I want to make sure UVM students have exposure to this great city.
