There are packing lists for ever and ever out there on the Internet, but I wanted to give a brief post as to what not to bring. I’ve seen some people make these mistakes, and boy are they regretting it now. First off, yes, no matter which semester you come here, it will get very, […]

I’ll dedicate another post to the clothing of what to bring, but I wanted to take some time and talk about non-clothing related things I wish I had brought along with me, or that I brought and have not found much use for. I hope this list is useful to you who will come to […]

I love movies. I love watching movies, thinking about movies, discussing movies – love love love movies. I’m watching a movie as I write this (it’s The Two Towers, jsyk).

My life pretty much revolves around food, so I can’t not take this opportunity to tell you about one of my favorite restaurants in the entire city of Rome, and even the country of Italy: Osteria dell’Anima. Located literally just off of the Piazza Navona at Via Santa Maria dell’Anima, 08, Piazza Navona – 00186 […]


Fall Break with JFRC!

Fall Break with JFRC!

October 23rd, 2017

For students at our Chicago campuses, Fall Break is a too-short four-day weekend made for sleeping in, taking time to explore the beautiful city, and, if you’re an out-of-state student like me, hanging out with all of the other students who live just a little too far to go home for a break.   But […]

John Felice Rome Center Campus – curious?

October 3rd, 2017

Many people, when talking about the study abroad experience, like to focus on the dream world of travel that you can do. Places to see, people to meet, things to eat, and on and on. It was interesting for me, then, when I was doing research and preparations to come here, that I did not […]

If you are following me from my past school year’s blog, you may remember that I mentioned that I was planning to study abroad the summer of 2017. Initially, I planned on studying abroad in London, England for a class in International Public Relations, however, due to a very tense climate the month prior to […]

Let’s Take this Moment to Reflect (Take 2)

April 25th, 2017

It is part of the Jesuit tradition, even emphasized by St Ignatius of Loyola, it is the importance of reflection. Whether you enjoy journal writing, creating art, or making music; I believe it is important to clear your head and look introspectively. So, as the semester draws to a close, with three days of the […]
