The University of New Haven has a first year abroad program for incoming freshmen. This is different from most schools because first-year students typically have to wait until their second semester to study abroad.

First off, the University of New Haven Study Abroad Office does not encourage traveling by yourself. It has been my choice to travel alone. This is my third time studying abroad in Prato, Italy. I was here for fall 2016, worked here the summer of 2018, and now I am back for the fall. The Prato...

Rebecca Tatera, Contributing Writer

November 17, 2019

By now, the number one thing I am known for is my inability to tolerate gluten. I never stop talking about it. I have had celiac disease for more than seven years now. That means my body cannot process gluten the same way most people can. Gluten is “a group of indigestible proteins found in wheat,...

During  my freshman year at the University of New Haven, advertisements for the study abroad program were everywhere. The Prato campus staff manned tables at events, sent out emails, and even appeared in classes to explain the benefits of studying internationally. It was inescapable, and I vehement...

We spent another weekend in Prato last week and it was filled with even more relaxation. Last Friday, I took advantage of one of the many free school trips that are offered on the...

Ciao! Another week in Prato, another week closer to being home and I could not be more upset about leaving this beautiful country. Last weekend was Deanna’s birthday, and so we visited the beautiful area of Cinque Terre. Cinque Terre is a set of five small towns located along the shore of Northern...

Last weekend, I went on another one of my many adventures. It was Easter Weekend, which meant that we had that Monday off, so a four day weekend, and what better place to spend a four day weekend than in Barcelona, Spain. Iyana, Deanna, Chase, Zach, and I traveled to Barcelona for beaches and Spanish f...

Slowly but surely, I’m getting back into the swing of things with classes. Last week, I started volunteering for my Italian class at a local school in Prato. Four days a week, I go to the school and help the students practice their English, while I attempt to use Italian to explain things to them....

Ciao! Last weekend, we took another break from traveling, and, instead, just hung out in Prato, and by hung out, I mean we recuperated from our previous weeks of travel. The past week has been constant studying, as it was midterm week for us here in Italy. To take a break from studying, our Italian...

Letters to Juliet Ciao! After our weekend in Prato, Deanna, Iyana, and I brought our adventures elsewhere in Italy. Our first stop for the weekend was Venice, Italy. They were not joking when they said the city was all water. Pedestrian walkways are alleyways and streets are canals. People don’t d...

Pheewww! Considering we had last weekend off, we sure kept ourselves busy. After we saw the Prato soccer game last Saturday, we spent the entire day on Sunday at Carnivale in Viareggio, which is only about an hour away by train. It was Valentine’s Day, so what better way to spend the day than going...

After a long few weekends of traveling, we decided to take this past weekend off and actually participate more heavily in the study part of study abroad. But that still didn’t prevent us from exploring all that Prato has to offer. On Friday, we attempted to work the public bus system in hopes to arrive...
