"I'm an art history major so being in Florence, Italy for almost four months was bound to be memorable. . .and I have never felt so passionate about art history before. Imagine feeling like you're in a museum when you're really just walking to class . . .Art history isn't just a class. It's a way of life. The two become connected. And that's how it should be. You drink, you eat, you laugh, you explore- and all the while, the art is around you."
