Hi, I’m Tatum! I’m currently a sophomore at Arcadia University studying Communications with a minor in Graphic Design, and I am on the tennis team as well. This semester I’m studying at the Umbra Institute in Perugia, Italy, a small medieval city north of Rome. I like art, traveling (both in the U.S. and abroad), and am working my way towards speaking Italian. When I’m not at school I live in Torrington, CT with my family where they have always taught me to travel and explore, and I guess I really took that to heart considering I’m now spending 5 months abroad and planning trips all over Europe while I’m here. I squeezed as many things as I could into my suitcase and I’m so excited to embrace this amazing culture (and food) as well as my own Italian heritage. In my blog you can read about my journey and life in Italy, and you’ll find out if I scooped enough ice cream cones over the summer to pay to keep me fed during my semester. Come along, and see just how many times I get lost while abroad.
