A look through the arrival of our Fall 2014 studenti!

Students cool down after a warm day visiting the Colosseum

On September 27th, the Fall 2014 JFRC students arrived on campus and began their orientation week. The Student Life Team filled the next few days with information sessions and community building activities such as a Scavenger Hunt in the city of Rome and two group dinners in the neighborhood close to campus. The students also visited both the Roman Forum and the Colosseum after a lecture from Professor Alexander Evers. Classes started on that following Monday so the entire student body spent the Sunday before relaxing on the beach. Some played volleyball while others swam in the sea and bathed in the sun. After a whirlwind orientation, full of tons of information and even more fun, the students settled into their daily rhythm of attending classes and exploring Rome every chance they get.
