“I saw that there was this opportunity to start an exchange program with a university in Europe, and I said, ‘Well, why not Verona?’” said Harrison. She went on to explain why Verona is a desirable location for study abroad programs. “Verona has a unique location,” said Harrison. “First of all, it is not too big or too small.
