"Mega-hit Bus 94!"
By Maria Strumendo
For many people, catching the bus is part of their everyday routine, and for some, can often lead a ride of frustration – especially in peak hour. But for a small group of students from Bellarmine University, 'Bus 94' became the highlight of their short but productive visit to Milan.

Students from Bellarmine University (an independent, private, Catholic university in Louisville, Kentucky), accompanied by Professors Pat Carver and Richard Brown, visited Milan from May 19 – 23, as part of the Bellarmine University Business Program Abroad. Since 2008, Università Cattolica has warmy welcomed Bellarmine University for the 4 day trip.
The group arrived Saturday evening, and enjoyed a weekend of sightseeing and typical mouth-watering flavors of Milan.
On Monday morning the group had their first of two classroom instruction sessions, titled: "Small and medium enterprises," taught by Università Cattolica Professor B. Cannatelli at UCSC International. In the afternoon, the group visited KEF Italia S.p.A. (Key Equipment Finance).
On Tuesday morning, the group were back in the classroom for their final instruction session called "Before music marketing: the record."
"The students were very interested and attentive for the morning session," said a very content Professor Enrico Sibilla.
All the creative fun was saved until the end, as Tuesday afternoon was composed of singing, recording and entertainment by Professor Enrico Sibilla, Professors Pat Carver and Richard Brown, and the students, at the Recording Studio Effettonote.
The mega-hit was most definitely original. 'Bus 94' was recorded on to a CD, and has since been played across offices in both universities.
"The experience was so enjoyable and entertaining that we were in the studio almost four hours instead of the two provided," said Professor Enrico Sibilla.
"I am amazed at the final product. It truly reflects the patience, professionalism, and knowledge of Professor Enrico Sibilla in the music field," said Business Counselor at Bellarmine University, Richard Brown.
The lecture, the visit to the studio, and production of the mega-hit Bus 94 has been one of the highlights of our trip. Our visit was made truly special thanks to Professor Enrico Sibilla," he said.
As part of the Business Program Abroad, prior to their visit in Milan, the group went to Kufstein – Austria, Strasbourg – France, and Munich – Germany. Their final destination was Florence – Italy.
