Nine third-year architecture students (Nohemi Apri, Giancarlo Cano, Andrew Peterson, Ryan McKenzie, Tashana Mclean, Samantha Nu, Andrew Thomas, Alex Toth, Kobe Willis) and Associate Professor Ted Sawruk are spending their spring semester in Florence, Italy.
This is the first University of Hartford sponsored semester-long study-abroad program. The Department of Architecture is being hosted by International Studies Institute (ISI) Florence at the Palazzo Bargagli.
Professor Sawruk is teaching a design studio and an architecture elective at the institute. The students are also taking various language, technical, and elective courses from the Italian faculty. While there, the department has arranged for architecture excursions throughout Italy, including Venice, Rome, and Naples. Recent visits included Pisa, Siena, and San Gimignano.
We look forward to hearing more updates from the students as events unfold and encourage other CETA students to consider studying abroad.
