  • Arrival in Rome and first thoughts…

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

    While the apprehension for this trip and the success of it is still there, I can feel it melting away to excitement to return to Rome. I think the waiting area populated by dozens of Italians with their endlessly interesting language and over-exaggerated expressions and gestures has brought … More »

  • Finishing Up at Notre Dame

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 11, 2010.

    Now back to my schooling at Notre Dame--I was studying Industrial Design and Italian Language and Literature.

  • 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. There was something on the horizon, an exciting something, but it was too far off, and it was too surreal to give … More »

  • That Pit in your Stomach

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 11, 2010.

    I’m no stranger to the pit-in-your-stomach feeling when diving into something unfamiliar. In fact, I’m getting a little bit of that right now.

Happy Backpackers

I definitely have WSA to thank for my exceptional experience in Amsterdam. One would think 4 days isn't enough to tour a city but WSA facilitated an optimum weekend full of sightseeing and fun. Amsterdam may have a notorious reputation for its lax drug and sex culture but there‚Äôs so much more to the city. Luckily, our tour guide, Arthur, native to the Netherlands, steered us away from the tourist traps and showed us around his beloved city, highlighting all of its gems. I'd definitely like to try other WSA trips in the future. It's hassle free traveling with an awesome itinerary - nice that the tour guides are flexible with the schedule and willing to cater the itinerary to the group's interest! Highly recommend WSA to any student with only a weekend to see a city.
