Many undergraduates took advantage of U.Va.’s first-ever January Term. Above, students who studied abroad in Valencia prepare to tour the Palace of Dos Aguas, which houses the world’s largest collection of ceramics. Spanish Professor David Gies (second from right) and study abroad adviser Tim Wojoski accompanied the students. J-term provides a way for undergraduates to work closely with professors and helps the University address its goal of having more students study abroad. During this J-term, students had the opportunity to visit places such as Spain, Italy and Chaco Canyon, or to stay on Grounds and work with top professors.
Below students explore Rome.
