University Fellows is Samford's honors college experience, and part of that experience is connecting readings and teachings in the classroom, to their origins—tracing the steps of western intellectual tradition through travel.

In Italy, Fellows spend nearly three weeks visiting historic sites in Rome and Florence. In addition, they have a three-day travel break to explore other Italian or European cities.

All University Fellows travel to Italy during Jan Term of their sophomore year.  The program covers the cost of airfare, hotel, and ground transportation for this experience. Students pay for meals and a few museum entrances.

These videos show an insight into the Fellows trip, what they see, what they experience, and how their professors lead the way around one of the world’s historically great cities.
