|Although she has had previous
overseas experience, Allison Mills of Willow Groves, PA,
was on her first tour abroad this past summer as a student
Now in her second year in the HU Law School, she spent the
summer touring and studying in Italy. Assisted by the Ralph
J. Bunche International Affairs Center and others, Allison
took up comparative criminal law and comparative health law
during a six week session at the Loyola University School
of Law, Rome Center.
She was one of 70 students under the Loyola Program from
such institutions as Kent State, the University of San Diego,
UCLA, and the University of Texas.
Ms. Mills was able to improve her Italian language skills
by visiting such sites as Naples, Venice, the Italian Rivera,
Brindisi, Milan, and Palermo, taking advantage of every opportunity
to talk with Italians. She had a background of three years
of studying Italian in high school and also two previous short
visits to the country.
Allison is a graduate of St. Josephs College in Philadelphia.
On an earlier trip to Europe, she visited Britain, Switzerland,
Italy, Germany, and Belgium, "back-packing," she
said, most of the way.
"I always immerse myself in the culture," she says,
"in order to get in touch with diverse social, economic,
and political issues confronting the people."
The Pennsylvania native encourages other students to take
advantage of similar opportunities to travel and study abroad.
"It is enlightening," she says.
"In my travels, I was in the presence of breathtaking
history and cutting edge modernization.
