Michael Vagle '08

Major(s): Business Management

Study Abroad Location: Rome, Italy

Program Duration: Fall 2006

Favorite Course: Painting

Favorite Memory: I had purchased a bike from someone on the street when I first arrived. My classes finished at 12 on Tuesdays and after that I made a small lunch and would ride my bicycle all around Rome looking for great spots to eat and read the current book I was in the middle of. I stumbled across so many amazing locations and always had a great time of just relaxing and enjoying the cities rich history through the beautiful scenery and understanding the culture by simply observing the people walk by.
