A small group of students left for Italy on the morning of Monday, May 12 bound for the medieval lakeside castle town of Bracciano, about 30 miles northwest of Rome. The College has recently come into possession of a property called the Villaggio Betania. The students are traveling as a pilot group to help with basic renovations and research the opportunities and challenges of the study abroad program. They will also get the opportunity to travel to Rome and other cities in Italy.
Watch this video recap of Aquinas student and study abroad pilot group member Wil Bernhard.
