Getting involved with local culture
Students have a great time at their BBQ or Welcome Dinner when they arrive in Italy!

OUA staff teach students how to make ravioli, gnocchi and tagliatelle with different sauces!
The OUA and University of Siena Pizza Cook-off is one of the most acclaimed events by OUA students because it allows them to meet others, get to know their Italian peers and have fun giving vent to their creativity and their culinary arts.
The contest includes mixed teams of Italian and American students, while the OUA staff members make up the jury that judges the pizzas in terms of taste, aesthetics, and presentation.
The final pizza presentations often include songs, dances, and improvisations and always end up with laughter, fun and the pleasure of being together. The winning team is awarded with a series of prizes and the honor of having made the tastiest, most beautiful pizza! An appointment not to be missed and good for everyone!
With a Local Artist
Students stay busy at #OUinArezzo with a variety of optional activities. One of these includes taking a pottery class with a local artist. Our "official" ceramics artisan is Andrea Roggi from Arezzo who has his own shop and also offers lessons.
The wonderful Lucio, the Student Services Coordinator, taught us how to make ravioli with spinach and cheese and tagliatelle with ragu sauce! Student Zinny Simpson said, "This is one of the coolest experiences we have here." After making pasta, we were able to enjoy it with everyone for lunch! #OUASpring20
Students in the President's Leadership Class for Summer 2019 had a great time at their “Goodbye BBQ” at the Rooney Family Center in Arezzo!
What a fantastic group of student leaders!
Student Tara said, “Today was probably one of the funnest days of the trip for me. I loved that we got to spend time outside in the beautiful hills of Arezzo!”
