The Urbino project has been a once in a lifetime opportunity for me as a young journalist to hone my skills in multimedia reporting. I chose Urbino, Italy without knowing much about the town itself, and having only been to Italy once before for about a week had much to learn about Italian culture and studying abroad at Urbino University. The staff have been truly wonderful in assisting the students with their reporting projects. They have been supportive every step of the way, beginning by teaching us basic journalism classes, and then moving on to the advanced troubleshooting for the challenges that each individual student had to overcome in each of their projects. The University of Urbino and the town is very beautiful and is very student centered. Almost half of the population of Urbino is students and I am surrounded by fusball, history, art, food, and culture here in the Renaissance era castle town. I have become a better journalist because of this program and I strongly believe about this program and about life that you get out what you put in. Overall my time in Urbino has been something I could never have experienced back in the states. Thank you!
