OU in Arezzo
The University of Oklahoma's Italian Study Center
by Liliana Macias
Studying abroad in Italy is an experience that I will never forget. After a hectic return to the United States in the Spring of 2020, where I (and several other University of Oklahoma students) had to end their study abroad experience short, I never could have expected to be back in Italy so soon. After several applications, multiple cancellations of programs, and various conversations with genuinely extraordinary people, I was able to set up this Italian Language and Culture internship through the University of Oklahoma in Arezzo (OUA). Through transitions into the culture, growing friendships, and a wide variety of tasks, I have developed culturally, linguistically, and professionally.
