Taking Our Turn With International Leadership

Taking Our Turn With International Leadership

April 19th, 2015

Before I set out for my semester abroad people told me that my experience would be one of the most enriching experiences of my life–and an experience that would look good on a resume. I planned on coming abroad regardless of adding a line to my resume, but when I first got here I wasn’t […]


One of My Favorite Trips Yet: Milano & Lago Maggiore

One of My Favorite Trips Yet: Milano & Lago Maggiore

April 18th, 2015

Although we are down to our final weeks abroad our Italian adventures still aren’t over. This past weekend I joined a group of 28 students from the John Felice Rome Center as we went on the last study trip of the semester to Northern Italy. This trip was a dream come true for our Student […]


Discovering Roma: the Neighborhood of Testaccio

Discovering Roma: the Neighborhood of Testaccio

April 9th, 2015

I’ve been calling Rome “home” since January, but there is still so much of this city that I have yet to explore. Before this month is over my friends and I will be checking out the lesser known neighborhoods of the city. Who knew there was more here than the Colosseum?…Only kidding. For our Italian […]


A Sicilian Easter Weekend

A Sicilian Easter Weekend

April 7th, 2015

Easter has always been a holiday I celebrated with big family meals, Easter egg hunts, and attending church, so I knew this year it would be hard to celebrate this holiday away from home. Because my friends and I were all in the same home-sick boat we did our best to make our most of […]


Holy Week, The Family, The Eternal City

Holy Week, The Family, The Eternal City

April 6th, 2015

This year during Holy Week, my family has been blessed beyond belief with one incredible week together in the Eternal City. I’ve been awfully spoiled this semester by not only having my grandparents come to visit in February, but now my parents and brother as well. …And don’t worry our family selfie skills are improving. […]


Why Villa Borghese Should be at the Top of Your “To See in Roma” List

Why Villa Borghese Should be at the Top of Your “To See in Roma” List

April 2nd, 2015

The largest park in Roma has recently become one of my most visited attractions in the Eternal City–and with good reason. In my 4 recent visits to Villa Borghese I’ve managed to see something entirely new each time. This park was made for wandering and each time you visit you’re bound to find a new […]


Coming Together for the JFRC’s Inter Religious Week

Coming Together for the JFRC’s Inter Religious Week

March 29th, 2015

This week, the John Felice Rome Center focused on “joining hands for a world of peace, liberty, social justice, and moral value”. And I don’t think there could’ve been a better theme for the week as spring sets in and we all look towards a season of new beginnings (and warm weather of course). Inter […]


The Mercatos of Roma

The Mercatos of Roma

March 24th, 2015

This past weekend was the first one in quite a while that I’ve had free time to explore Rome. My friends and I have had the opportunity to experience cities all over Europe, but hardly anytime to explore the city we’ve been calling home. And these new explorations had me falling in love with Rome […]


Spring Break Part 2: Ireland

Spring Break Part 2: Ireland

March 22nd, 2015

After enjoying Paris and London stop #3 on our spring break journey was County Mayo, Ireland. My Uncle Eugene put us in the care of his sisters for the weekend, which couldn’t have been more perfect. Deirdre picked us up from the airport then drove us over to Westport, a really lovely little town with […]


Spring Break Part 1: Paris and London

Spring Break Part 1: Paris and London

March 18th, 2015

With Europe at our finger tips, the students of the John Felice Rome Center spread across the continent and beyond during our 10 day spring break. Students had the option to join JFRC staff on a study trip to the Balkans or Greece and Turkey or embark on individual journeys. I opted to map my […]
