When Ian Waldraff arrived in Italy to attend Temple’s Rome Campus for a semester, he was amazed at what he saw: bursts of color, lush greenery, sunny days and deeply ornamented architecture that surrounded him everywhere he looked.
“Every place of residence, every piece of architecture, every facade reflects a remarkable degree of warmth and care,” he observed.
Waldraff is one of three students selected by International Programs to write twice a month from their temporary homes abroad, sharing their photos and observations. Taylor Benjamin-Britton, a junior majoring in political studies and Asian studies, is writing from Temple University Japan’s Tokyo campus, and Khanh Le, a junior history major, writes from Vietnam National University in Hanoi, Vietnam.
