Marti Brown is a senior UW student who traveled to England & Italy during the Summer of 2012 as part of a Faculty-Led Program.

During the trip, Marti was able to earn academic credit while learning about Shakespeare. Marti was immersed in Shakespeare’s surroundings and got to see where he grew up and where he eventually wrote poetry and plays. She spent most of the trip reading plays, seeing plays, and reviewing plays.
She stayed in bed and breakfasts and hotels during the trip and would recommend that other UW students do the same. Marti says her favorite memory from the trip was “writing my love's initials in Juliet's alley in Verona, Italy.”
Her advice to other UW students who are studying abroad is to “experience all of the country's cultural foods!”
