Blog: Crimi ’15 Studies Ancient Languages and Literature in Greece and Italy

August 26th, 2013 by 


NAME Harry Crimi ’15

HOMETOWN Havertown, Penn.

AREAS OF STUDY Double major in classics and psychology

WHERE HE’S STUDYING
College Year in Athens, Greece (fall), and John Felice Rome Center in Rome, Italy (spring)

WHY HE CHOSE GREECE AND ITALY
“It has been my dream to study in the Mediterranean ever since I was young. Going to Athens and Rome allows me to make the most out of my major, and makes the ancient languages and literature come to life beyond simply seeing them on a textbook.”

WHAT HE’S MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO “To eat, take pictures, eat more, and then take more pictures of the food I ate. I cannot wait to immerse myself in new cultures and make new friends and memories. I also am 100 percent Italian and am very excited to reconnect with my family heritage by actually living in Italy.”

WHY HE’S BLOGGING “I have never left the country before, so this is a big and new experience for me. I want to make sure I take time to pause and reflect about my experience, and would love for others to read about it. I also want to post as many pictures of food as possible, and maybe even use them for a food memoir in the future.  What a better place to start than Italy and Greece?”
