Getting Involved While Abroad

Getting Involved While Abroad

January 29th, 2015

When I thought of what I’d be doing on campus while I was studying abroad at the John Felice Rome Center I figured it wouldn’t be much besides studying, eating, and sleeping. I’ve already been proved wrong. The Student Life team at the JFRC has given us the opportunity to be more than involved during […]

When in Rome…Do as the Romans

January 21st, 2015

Italians do things a little differently than I’m used to in the States. But, now that I’ve been in Rome for a week I’ve had some time to begin adapting to the Italian culture. Monday morning two of my friends and I went to run some errands in the neighborhood. Italy is not big on stores […]

Weekend Numero Uno in the Eternal City

January 18th, 2015

With orientation still underway, the JFRC staff had us in good hands during our first Roman weekend.

Friday night we had the opportunity to partake […]

But after a while of organizing, stuffing things into suitcases, and trying to decide what should stay home–I get a little overwhelmed. Especially while I’m packing for an entire semester abroad. I’ve never tried to pack up a […]


ROME-ing for the Spring of 2015

November 22nd, 2014

“Go forth and set the world on fire” -St. Ignatius of Loyola As I prepare for a semester abroad at the John Felice Rome Center in–you guessed it– Rome, Italy, St. Ignatius’ words have been on my mind. I think the most important word in this quote is simply “Go”. And thanks to the opportunity […]


Language Fairs, Diversity, and Rogers Park Living

October 27th, 2014

Did you know that Rogers Park is one of the most ethnically diverse places in the entire world? Here at Loyola, we live among people from all different ethnic backgrounds and heritages. Personally, this was one of the reasons Loyola was so attractive to me, I could make friends and meet people who had completely […]
