IRVING, TEXAS – Daniel Kopacko, a University of Dallas student from Constantia, recently returned from spending the 2014 spring semester studying abroad at the University of Dallas’ 12-acre Eugene Constantin Campus just outside Rome, Italy.
Since 1970, University of Dallas students have had the opportunity – usually in their sophomore years – to spend a semester in the Eternal City studying, traveling and experiencing the art, architecture, literature, philosophy and deeds that form the basis of Western civilization.
In addition to taking study trips to locations like the Roman Coliseum and the Vatican, students also travel throughout Italy on professor-led tours. A highlight of the semester is a 10-day study tour of Greece where students perform plays in ancient amphitheatres and read about Socrates on the sites where he once philosophized.
