Study Abroad Profile: Marcela Santos

Marcela Santos studied architecture in ItalyProgram: Public Space: Intercultural Studies in Contemporary Landscapes
Location: Rome, Italy - Winter 2009
Rank: Graduate Student
Major: Master of Architecture

"This winter break, I went to Rome with professor Kay Bea Jones and a group of students to look at their public space use, but in only ten days, we learned so much more about the culture, the history, the people, and even a few words in Italian, I am proud to say! I am originally from Brazil, and this unique study abroad program within my study abroad at Ohio State University is an incredible addition to my life experience. As an Architecture student, visiting Rome is almost an essential thing to do, in order to enhance my perception of space, scale and perspective. I can't wait to go back!"
