Gustavus Adolphus College
Spring 16 Ambassador
I’m Sophie Panetti, a history major and an avid creative writer. My classes here are focused on those two passions: Saints, Sinners, & Harlots; Archaeology; and Creative Writing. I can’t think of a better place to study history than central Italy, and I’ve been able to create a community of writers during my short time here by organizing open mic nights! One of my favorite aspects of study abroad, aside from the travel and exploration of Perugia, was noticing the differences in myself and how I’d changed over four months. Going abroad changes you in a lot of good ways, and I urge everyone considering it to see it as a chance for a lot of growth! I also went on a lot of solo rambles around this mystical and magical city, and that is something I urge everyone to do whenever they can.
