  • Prague, Fine Beer and a Dirty Mustache

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

                I came over to Europe a week before school started in Rome. Destination: Prague, the land of cheap beer and absinth and of course, a rich culture. After I picked up my bags at the airport, I headed outside to the bus stop to wait for the 71 express bus. A bus passed by me, and as … More »

  • Study Abroad Rome—A Springboard for European Adventure

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

I had purposely … More »

  • Studying Abroad and WSA’s Beginnings

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 11, 2010.

    My to-be Rome friends and I were accepted into  the Spring ’08 Rome program in March or April of ’07. From that point, we really just sat on our hands for the following 9 months.

Happy Backpackers

Everything was so organized and the tour guide was AWESOME! They had everything planned out and I got a really good feel for life in the city. We even got to cut the lines for the Anne Frank House and Van Gogh museum. It was definitely worth the money and I would recommend to anyone looking for a fun filled weekend.
