Below are images and descriptions of spaces being renovated by your gifts toward Avanti! Many of these spaces are available for naming. If you are interested in that information, please contact Jamie Orsini.
ENTRANCE COURTYARD AND GARDEN
This picturesque entryway welcomes all students and friends to the JFRC and is the center of much of the activity on campus. The courtyard is a place for students to enjoy the warmth of Rome as they gather to socialize, study, and relax.
The dining hall has been enlarged and transformed into a 21st century space for students and visitors to enjoy community meals.
In the center of campus, this is a new outdoor eating area for an al fresco dining option.
Also known as Rinaldo’s Café, this is the next generation of the bar that so many of our alumni remember fondly.
THE FRANK (BS ‘54, JD ‘57) AND PATRICIA COVEY COFFEE BAR TERRACE
Adjacent to the coffee bar, this space will offer outdoor seating options and will be the site of the Alumni Wall.
STUDENT UNION, MUSIC ROOM, AND THEATRE ROOM
These vibrant new areas will allow JFRC students to fully engage in the broad scope of activities offered at the JFRC and explore avenues of creativity and expression. [The music room has been named.]
Mimi' Bussineli Cailotto Music Room - A gift of Susan Lamb Cook and Dennis (JFRC '72-'73, JD '79) Cook
The current space will be renovated to accommodate new exercise equipment and provide an area for group classes and dance performance and practice.
