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...

Italy is a beautiful country, and this past fall I had the privilege of studying abroad at the university’s Prato campus. Aside from the experience everyone thinks about, the classes, studying abroad in Europe, since all of the countries are so close together, provides a unique opportunity to see the...

Imagine lying in a hammock on the beach, under a pair of palm trees, the warm wind gently rocking you back and forth. Listen to the crash of the waves as they break on the shore and then the pause as they roll swiftly back to sea. This is what you will find on the islands of Trinidad and Tobago. On a v...

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....

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...

I’m still searching for my Paolo after my weekend in Rome, but after being in that city for the weekend, Paolo was the last thing on my mind. I went with two of my friends, Iyana Jones and Deanna Weech, and I think I can successfully say that we conquered Rome in one weekend. In just the first day...

Falling in Love With Places is Harder than Falling in Love with People

Courtney Brooks

September 2, 2015

Falling in love with places is harder than falling in love with people.  Those who have gone through a break up a time or two may beg to differ, but until you have traveled to a new place and been completely consumed and immersed by its lifestyle, only to be catapulted back into this reality of New...

A new city every weekend Time has gone by so fast and I already have less than a month left of living in Italy. November is a busy month because it’s our last couple of weeks before finals, and all of our semester projects are due. Fortunately with classes and homework, the school has planned a tr...

A Parisian Experience My second destination for fall break was Paris, and it was a one-of-a-kind experience. As soon as we arrived and put our stuff down in the hostel, our tour guides took the group to a fondue restaurant. It was my first time having fondue, so I was so excited to experience this with ...

With Spring Break come and gone, the students at the University of New Haven Prato campus are worn out and probably a little low on cash, but they have seen the world. Last week the students took off and explored London, Ireland, Paris, Greece, Spain, Switzerland, and some even stayed to explore more cities in Italy ...
