CEA CAPA Directory
Purdue University Main Campus
Grace Wynja, Alumni Ambassador
WHY WAS YOUR CEA CAPA PROGRAM THE RIGHT FIT FOR YOU?
I chose Florence because of the smaller city, unique culture, and geographic location, enabling me to have the opportunity to easily travel. It was so cool to walk everywhere like the school, restaurants, friends apartments, etc. I couldn't love Florence more because of the people, the city, and the culture.
HOW DID YOU ENGAGE WITH THE LOCAL COMMUNITY ABROAD?
I had a host family I would meet once a week at their house for dinner most of the time. I gained insight about Italians lifestyles, culture, family dynamics, etc. I still keep in contact with the family, which is very special and makes me feel like I'm back in Florence!
