While studying abroad in Chile, Samantha Sidwell first connected with people through music.

Sidwell, a 2011 UI graduate, was placed in a host family full of musicians and quickly became involved in music locally by playing cello in an orquestra at her university and taking lessons from a Chilean instructor.

“Music was a great way for me to connect to my family,” Sidwell said. “I couldn’t necessarily speak that well right when I got there, especially because Chilean is very hard to understand at first. So one of the ways for me to connect was just to play.”

“It’s a small place but it’s a big place.” So says law professor Peter Shirlow from Queens University, Belfast, Northern Ireland. Shirlow isn’t talking about Belfast but about Iowa City, his destination 24 years ago when he won a prestigious Stanley Scholarship to study at the University of Iowa. The Stanley award allowed him to come to the UI for a year’s study and, just as importantly, to Iowa City where he established close friendships that have remained strong in spite of distance and the passage of time.
