Amanda Harris


Where I Went: Perugia, Italy

When I Went: Fall 2010

Program: The Umbra Institute through Arcadia

My name is Amanda Harris and I am a junior English major. I didn’t take any English classes while I was abroad, but I got to choose courses that really interested me and that I would not have had time to take or were not offered at Rhodes.  History of Food and Culture was my favorite course as we got to go to local shops and have tastings and see how gelato is made!  I loved studying in a smaller city because I got to practice my Italian and I wasn’t just another American in a big city.  I got to travel a lot, Rome and Florence were very close and I also went to Germany, Denmark and Ireland.  I loved studying in Perugia and would highly recommend the program!
