The Process of Studying Aboard

The Process of Studying Aboard

February 12th, 2016

Studying aboard is something that didn’t cross my mind when thinking about my college experience. The person who opened my eyes to studying aboard at Loyola was my academic adviser. Being a nursing major, I have a strict outline of my four year plan and the only time I can study aboard is the fall semester […]


Giving Thanks For LUC

November 29th, 2015

I feel bad for Thanksgiving. This perfectly good holiday has become overshadowed by the upcoming Christmas season. Rather than serving as a pause and time to give thanks with our loved ones it has become the perfect long weekend to get the best deals on the perfect presents and set up the Christmas tree. I’ll […]


Adjustments

Adjustments

October 10th, 2015

I’m back from a semester abroad, I’ve moved off campus, and I’m an upperclassman. Fall 2015 has been a period of adjusting to say the least. Last spring I had probably the best semester of my college career studying at the John Felice Rome Center. So being back in Chicago has been a little more […]


Why Your Next Semester Should be at the JFRC

Why Your Next Semester Should be at the JFRC

May 3rd, 2015

They say a semester abroad will change your life. They say it will be an unforgettable experience where you learn so much about yourself and the world around you. They say your mind will be opened to new ideas, cultures, and people. Well, after my semester in Rome I would have to say that I […]


Time for a Study Break…or a Trip to Pompeii

Time for a Study Break…or a Trip to Pompeii

May 3rd, 2015

Since the beginning of the semester my friends and I have been talking about taking a trip to Pompeii. We talked about going a few different weekends, but we never got ourselves together and made the day trip. Then all of the sudden it was the week before finals and we decided we needed to […]


JFRC Prom Night

JFRC Prom Night

April 25th, 2015

Well, I suppose the End of Semester Banquet wan’t exactly prom, but close enough. Getting dressed up, posing for pictures, eating a fancy meal, and spending a night out in Roma as one big JFRC community had it feeling just about like my senior prom. Well, besides the fact that my senior prom wasn’t in […]


Finals Week and Final Roman Adventures

April 23rd, 2015

Somehow this semester slipped past me and now here I am trying to write end of the semester papers and study for finals…in Rome. It’s hard enough to push through finals week in Chicago and now I’m finding it even harder here. My classes are starting to feel like actual classes and I have to […]


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 […]


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 […]
