ROME, Italy (WLFI) - A group of Purdue students studying abroad got to witness history.
Kristen Clark, Abby Diebolt, Baily Altman, and Heather Smith spoke via Skype with our sister station WLFI Friday evening from Italy. They're there as part of a week-long study abroad trip with the College of Agriculture.

The students return to the States Saturday.
