About this Event
Students interested in the Food in Sicily study away program, scheduled for May 6 through May 26, 2022, are invited to attend an Info Session via Teams.
"Like ice cream, cheesecake, and chocolate? What about marzipan, cannoli, and sumptuous pasta? Then, come experience the cultural and historic food ways of Sicily, the Mediterranean's largest island. We'll travel Sicily's eastern 'Greek' and western 'Roman' coasts to see and taste this unique island's rich history of food traditions. You may even meet the Chef's Table star while visiting Caffe Sicilia in Noto, Sicily," said Food in Sicily Director David Bell, Ph.D., associate professor of Linguistics in the College of Arts & Sciences.
"Students interested in the Food in Sicily study away program are invited to join us at any one of our Info Sessions," Bell said. Join an info session via Teams at https://bit.ly/FoodinSicily:
Food in Sicily is a faculty-led program for Ohio University credit. In OHIO credit programs, students earn OHIO credit, travel with an OHIO faculty or staff member, and travel and take courses with other OHIO students. A student's full financial aid package applies the same as it would for on-campus courses.
Food in Sicily is open to both undergraduate and graduate students, and students can earn six credit hours learning about the "Italian for Table and Market," meeting with local social enterprises, helping with dinner at a local soup kitchen, taking cooking classes, and visiting farms, breweries and wineries. (See students Singing, Dancing and Churning the Cheese in Sicily during the 2019 trip."
Visits to markets and sites in Ortigia, Italy including the Catacombs of San Giovanni, the Jewish quarters, and Castello Maniace. Day trips are planned to Catania, Italy, where students will visit the fish market, historic city center, Benedictine Monastery, Greek Theater, and Cathedral, as well as to Canicattini Bagni, Noto, Mt. Etna, and Taormina.
How to plan for travel: Talk to OGO advisers
Students traveling internationally must seek approval through the Study Away Risk Assessment Committee process managed by the Office of Global Opportunities. This includes student international travel for all independent, university-affiliated experiences such as internships, research, exchange, volunteer, clinicals, work, trainings, and conferences. It is recommended that travelers submit their travel requests no later than three months prior to travel.
"Students interested in studying abroad should chat with an OGO adviser about their options and timelines. There are different procedures and considerations based on the type of program a student pursues. Our team of peer advisers can walk through those considerations and help make a plan for next steps," Keely Davin, associate director of the Office of Global Opportunities.
OGO offers individual advising sessions to discuss goals, interests and program-planning. Appointments can be scheduled via bookings. For questions about booking with a specific adviser, you can contact email@example.com.
