During my trip to Italy over spring break, I was able to attend a true soccer game for the first time in my life.
I’ve seen American soccer games — including M.L.S. — countless times, games up close and personal. However, after attending the Fiorentina and Juventus soccer game last week, it is safe to say that American soccer has nothing on Italian soccer.
More than 25 Harding students and professors spent their spring break with several high school students serving people in Jinotega, Nicaragua.
One of the purposes of the trip was to tell some of the stories of the Nicaragua people. Although the students received academic credit for the trip, most of the students said they would take the trip again even if credit hours were not offered.

When studying in Florence, students understand there will be differences when living in another culture. One thing students do not fully understand before leaving America is the vast difference between eating habits in the two different countries.
ORVIETO, ITALY — A city on a hill cannot be hidden, especially the city of Orvieto, Italy.
Orvieto is a quaint, breathtaking city located on the highlands of a cliff in northern Italy. Although the city is known for its strikingly gorgeous silhouette against a vertical rock face, Orvieto is by no means “shallow.”
Underneath the surface of this ancient city lies a succession of caves, burrows and tunnels built 3,000 years ago by those living in the “mansion” of a city above.
