However! My roommate went on a different Rome trip this summer. She ran into some of the creative writing students, and she tells me that they hated the program. Apparently, too much was demanded of them, to a point where they could not enjoy their surroundings at all. Classes were held all day, and their assignments had them writing in the evenings. Can anyone confirm or deny this for me?
Alternatively, does anyone know of any good UW sponsored summer programs in Europe? Or maybe even elsewhere in the world (I say Europe since I'll already be in the UK come summer)? While I'm not afraid of being dropped off in the middle of a non-english speaking country, I would need a program with classes taught in english. Any subject matter is awesome.
