“I have been fortunate enough to study off-campus twice, and my semesters in Chicago and Florence were both lessons of life and the heart and the mind and, especially, of the world,” said Ana Kennedy, a junior at Lawrence University.

“It was in these two incredible cities, which are vibrant and inspiring, but also sometimes troubled,” she continued, “that I experienced the importance and the interconnection of art, language, and empowerment.”
Kennedy, who studied on the ACM Urban Studies and Florence programs, was one of 33 students participating in the second annual ACM Student Symposium on Off-Campus Study this past weekend in Chicago.
In their presentations, the students reflected on the rich and varied array of research projects, internships, and cultural exchanges they experienced while studying in locations around the world, from Argentina to Botswana to Japan.
This year’s Symposium was streamed live on the ACM website, and videos of the students’ presentations are posted on the Student Symposium webpage.
