Settling into Spring

Settling into Spring

As the first day of classes begin, 235 students (the largest group the John Felice Rome Center has housed in many years) have started to settle into the routine of life abroad. This past weekend gave the students the opportunity to visit the Colosseum and the Forum, as well as the chance to explore Tuscia, a nearby area outside of Rome. Classes have just begun but students, staff, and faculty are already looking forward to the Orientation Trip to the region of Campania this next weekend. The entire student body will spend three days traveling together, visiting historical sites, eating great food, and growing as a community. While the last five days have been full of activities and meetings, they have provided students only an idea as to what their life here will be like; a truly unique and fulfilling study-abroad experience.
