Class of ’74 Scholar Wendi Gonzalez sends note from Rome

My experience in Rome has been incredible. I still have yet to get over the shock of living ten minutes from the Pantheon. Everywhere I go there’s a monument that I had seen hundreds of times in books growing up. I used to flip through magazines and sketch from pictures, but now I can actually go see these in person. 

It feels as though I just arrived yesterday and in the blink of an eye the semester is coming to an end. The field trips around Italy and to Berlin have been great and I’ve been able to see not just Rome but much of Italy.  Thankfully, classes aren’t as rigorous so I can spend afternoons soaking up the culture.  If you ever have a chance, I would highly recommend spending a few days in this amazing city.
