Lally Student Blogs From Italy
Sam Reynolds ’11, a junior in management in the Lally School of Management & Technology and a member of the Epsilon Delta Sigma Management Honor Society, is studying for a semester at Universita Commerciale Luigi Bocconi in Milan, Italy. Lally has been exchanging students with Bocconi University regularly since 1996, and three Lally students are studying there in spring 2010.

According to Beth Macey, international management exchange program coordinator, Reynolds was selected to participate due to his outstanding academic achievements at Rensselaer. He is taking courses that will transfer as Strategy & Policy, Marketing Research, International Relations, and an additional elective that can be applied to a marketing concentration. Reynolds is living in Bocconi’s on-campus housing — complete with house-keeping service.

Reynolds is blogging about his stay in Italy. “My friends range from U.S. cities such as San Francisco, to Chicago, to Boston, to worldwide cities and countries like Australia, Dubai, Portugal, Norway, Puerto Rico, Chile, and more,” he reported in one post. “It is a great group of kids who are in the same boat as me.”

Reynolds is enjoying the flavors of Italy. “Gnocci, gelato, and nutella — I feel like I have not lived the first 20 years of my life!” he wrote. “There is the smell of pizza everywhere; it’s honestly like an imitation of heaven.”
