I'm Elizabeth Cameron and I am a rising senior on the Babson Volleyball team from El Dorado Hills, California. During the spring of my junior year, I was lucky enough to spend the semester and study abroad in Florence, Italy, and it was truly an incredible experience. Though I missed volleyball and my team, the culture, food, new friends and going abroad for only the second time of my life allowed me to learn and grow in new ways.
My name is Kristin Carosotto and I am a rising senior on the Babson women’s volleyball team from East Greenwich, Rhode Island. This past spring I traveled to Florence, Italy to study abroad for what was a very quick four months. Before traveling to Italy, I had a three personal goals that I wanted to achieve during my time there. One, fully immerse myself into a new culture, two, gain knowledge that I may not be able to find at Babson, and three, take advantage of where I was by traveling as much as possible.

A consistent theme that Coach Neely preached throughout my three years with the program was having to “deal with adversity”, whether it be manufactured intentionally or having occurred naturally.
