Kaila Teague ’22
“Studying abroad was truly a transformative experience for me. I participated in Pitzer’s program in Parma, Italy and had the once in a lifetime opportunity to be fully immersed in the Italian culture and language. The program consists of four courses: Art History, Italian Culture, Italian Language, and a Community-Based volunteership.
One of my favorite parts of studying abroad was my volunteer work through the Community-Based course. For my volunteership, I taught over 60 hours of English to Italian middle schoolers by preparing topics related to the culture of the United States including food, civil rights, my hometown, and more!
Studying abroad helped me to learn about the intricacies of Italian culture and see beautiful places like Florence, Venice, and Milan. I hope to travel back to Italy again in the future.”
