  • Field Hockey's Haley Pesce Shares Experiences from Her Time in Florence, Italy
    June 25, 2019
    My name is Haley Pesce and I am a rising Senior on the Babson field hockey team from Roxbury, Conn. During the spring semester, I studied abroad in Florence, Italy at Syracuse University Florence. Syracuse University in Florence was first established in 1959, however, the main building on campus has been standing since 1892. The university and campus itself have a great history behind it, which was apparent as you walked through the halls- magnificent murals and chandeliers hanging throughout. I had many aspirations going into my study abroad experience, being something that I have looked forward to since high school. I have a huge travel bug that has always made me want to see all areas of the world, become more informed about new cultures, and meet people of different lifestyles. I come from an Italian background, which sparked my interest in Italy, along with of course the food.
