Hi! My name is Allison Archer. I studied abroad in Pavia, Italy with UF in Pavia- Engineering and Arts as a rising sophomore in Summer 2021. My program offered a unique combination of engineering, as I took Physics II abroad, and art, allowing me to view Pavia from a lens I never thought possible. Although it seemed scary, studying abroad in Italy was something that I have always dreamed of, and taking that leap made a huge impact on my life. In Italy, I made lifelong friends, all while learning how to be on my own, and made memories I will hold onto for the rest of my life!
