Fall 16 Ambassador
Hi! My name is Samantha and I am an Elementary Education major at Endicott College in Beverly, Massachusetts. Choosing to study abroad in Perugia was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Living in Perugia gave me a taste of authentic Italy. I immediately fell in love and the city began to feel like home. After long weekends traveling, coming back to Perugia always felt like coming home. Everyone was so helpful and welcoming. While at Umbra you are required to take an Italian class, which is much needed seeing as most Perugians don’t speak much English. I also took a photography class, an Italian culture class, and a class about Italian literature. On top of my four core classes, I was given the opportunity to teach English to elementary school students for a few weeks, which was an amazing experience. I could not have asked for a better semester!!
