“I have realized how differently people can live their lives” – Connor McGlone

Connor McGlone is a marketing and supply chain management from the University of Pittsburg who is currently studying abroad in Florence, Italy. In this quick episode, Connor talks about transitioning to life in Florence and what he’s got planned for the rest of the semester in not only Italy, but the rest of Europe as well.

Usually that’s about all I can post, but Connor is an official CAPA blogger this semester. So if you’d like to keep up with his travels you most definitely can do so in the link above. And just so you know, he received a grant for this.

Quote Connor would like to leave you with: “The most dangerous thing in life is to play it safe” — Casey Niestat
