USAC Italy: Verona

Hi! My name is Abby Curto. I am a senior and in Fall 2021 I studied abroad in Verona, Italy. I am a public health major with a minor in education. Even though I went abroad in the middle of a pandemic, studying abroad was one of the best decisions I have ever made! While I was abroad, I was able to travel all over Italy and to 6 other countries. I ate tons of yummy food and made lots of new friends and memories! One of my favorite memories from being abroad was attending a soccer game in Milan, Italy. Soccer is a huge part of Italian culture, so we decided to go to a game where Milan was playing Verona. The game was rowdy and fun and unlike any sports event in the US. I think if anyone is considering studying abroad, my advice is to do it! Studying abroad is truly a life changing experience where your perspective on the world and different cultures changes drastically. You don’t get many opportunities in life to just drop what you are doing and go travel the world and live in a different country for 3 months so do it!
