Hello! My name is Caroline (she/her), and I studied abroad in Italy with the UF in Pavia - Engineering and Arts in Italy program during the summer between my freshman and sophomore year (Summer 2021). The UF in Pavia program was perfect for me because I'm an engineering major, so it easily fit into my degree plan, and I had visited Italy before and loved the culture, people, and food, so I was excited to go back! Studying abroad was not only a way for me to learn about myself, but also to connect with others, and I met some of my best friends during my time abroad (shoutout to Juana and Allison, who are also SAPAs). There is truly no experience like swimming in Lake Como or running around the Coliseum at 3am, and I am so grateful for all of the amazing friends and memories I made while studying abroad.
