My Travel Story

by: Natalie Kelly Start Date: Oct 22, 2016 - End Date: Mar 20, 2017
It was the beginning of the semester, and there I was, taking Ancient Greek, when my Professor told us that there would be an opportunity to go to Greece on a Travel Study trip. Of course, that sounds intriguing to anyone, but as a college student, intriguing doesn't always mean you're interested.

However, it was hardly a week later when my Art professor also brought up the Greek trip, and that was when I found out that the trip wasn't just "We're going to Greece!", and could actually do something for my education. As an Art student, I hadn't realized that this travel study would not only be interesting, but would also be a learning experience. The trip would count towards two different classes- one on Greek Mythology, and one an art study and travel journal. Not only did this apply to my area of study (art), but it was directly in line with what I am currently learning.

To be able to go to Greece would be such an incredible learning experience. Not only am I taking Ancient Greek this semester and next semester before the trip, but I am an aspiring art student. If I were able to go on this trip, it would help to grow as a student, as a person, and as an artist. It would be a historical journey through Greece, allowing me to more fully understand the ancient societies and philosophies which have had such an impact on the present day.

Thank you.
