Alice spent spring semester of 2023 in Florence, Italy on the UW in Florence program. There she lived in an apartment with other UW students and locals. Alice was able to foster many connections with other international students and locals by studying the Italian language. She took courses focused on art history, Italian wine history, and renaissance history. Her courses gave her a broader understanding of Italian culture particularly in the city of Florence. Alice’s courses allowed her to tour and see many famous renaissance buildings and pieces of artwork. Her study abroad experience allowed her to grow as both a person and a student while giving her memories and experiences she will treasure forever.
