What Our Students Say...

I decided to study in Italy because I’d wanted to go ever since I was a kid. Italy is wonderful and Perugia is a unique city, but the real reason I loved it was the people I met there. Whether it was a professor telling us about Italian culture or bothering the staff with dozens of travel questions, the people are truly the best part of Umbra.

January 27th is International Holocaust Day, commemorating the lives lost by the hands of Nazi Germany during World War II as well as the liberation of the last survivors of the Auschwitz death camp.
Florence also remembers the lives of 300 local Jewish residents uprooted from their homes and lives and forced into concentration camps by the Nazi occupation of Florence.
You may notice small bronze "tripping stones" embedded into the sidewalks of the city. These stones, created by German artist Gunter Deming, are actually all across Europe (over 70,000) and mark where some of these victims lived.

UVA's Carter Lowe has just started her semester in #italy and says:
“I have enjoyed all of Umbra’s courses so far, and am already in love with Perugia. The staff are extremely helpful in getting settled into the city and culture. I can’t believe I’m here for 4 months!”

Stay tuned to learn more about Carter's Italian adventures later this semester!

In the meantime, we encourage @UVA students to #goabroad with #uvastudyabroad.

"Before the day is a day, after reaching the city riding a scooter and after coffee. Before I connect myself to the rest of the things, alone with my pencils."

Today Perugia woke up under the snow! ❄️
The best view of the piazza is from the Umbra student lounge, well sheltered and cozy. ☕️
