    the moments when you realize you re far from the ordinary of home For me it was the moment I walked into the Sistine Chapel where tourists gathered together to look up at that vast grand ceiling of the Renaissance masterpiece It was the time when my classmates and I got lost in Vatican City and had to find our way back to our hotel through the twisted streets of Rome It was sitting in mass at St Peter s Basilica with people from all over the world coming together for a shared experience and purpose It was visiting the mystical Temple of Poseidon overlooking the Aegean Sea where the wind was as powerful as forces from the gods It was the last night in Athens at the farewell dinner where an old woman grabbed my hand to join her in a traditional Greek dance Over the fall prerequisite class Classical Greece and Rome a paired course taught by Professor Furman Adams of the English department and Professor Hunt of the Philosophy department we studied literature and philosophy of antiquity We then spent Jan Term abroad in two of the most beautiful cities of the world one week in Rome Italy and two weeks in Athens Greece Traveling to these European countries meant a full experience of intellectual and personal growth Layers of history archeology philosophy religion and art came alive and breathed through the cities museums and preserved ruins Everyday our class stuck together and toured the popular sites the cities had to offer In Rome we left our hotel early each morning in rain or shine with Professor Hunt and Professor Furman Adams as our tour guides Because we had already studied literature from antiquity over the fall semester the professors enthusiastically filled our minds with the historical lessons of other time periods as well as raised philosophical thoughts relevant to specific sites Our learning expanded from the Classics to the Renaissance to contemporary Roman culture The professors made sure we were experiencing everything beyond the average tourist enriching our travel with meaning and knowledge Despite the overwhelming amounts of information our class spent each day absorbing a vivid understanding of the struggles and victories of mankind I was personally inspired on our first day in Rome when we went to visit the Capuchin Crypt where the bones of long dead friars are collected and arranged in intricate and hauntingly beautiful designs After reading the stories placed on the walls about some of the most famous friars and monks I was deeply inspired by how they sacrificed their whole lives to finding God and the meaning of the human experience After a week in Rome we packed our bags and prepared for our flight to Athens During the fall semester class we had learned about Socrates Aristotle and Plato and soon we would be walking the same streets of some of history s most influential thinkers We visited many temples and ruins including the temple of Poseidon the
