Why Rome?

 "The classes were perfect in that they were classes that we wouldn't have been able to take in Austin.  Museum and site visits didn't supplement the class; they were the class.  I loved the Rome program - it's one of the highlights of my time in undergrad. Both classes made great use of the city, getting us out to museums and historical sites. Most classes deal with theory, but in this program, we dealt with the practical. It's one thing to read two chapters about the Roman forum's importance; it's another to walk through it and see everything firsthand. We really only could have taken those classes in Rome itself. Working through the AIRC ensured we had access to great resources & knowledgeable, friendly staff who went above and beyond in answering our questions. I liked the program's structure, also - classes kept us plenty busy, but in our off time, we were truly off. The weekend excursions to other cities were the perfect way to make the most of our time abroad. I'd definitely recommend the program to any Plan II student wanting to go abroad."
