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

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. Massive meals, a visit to the Colosseum, and a day in Lazio’s countryside made the perfect end to week number one, and perfect start to our first week of classes. Friday night we had the opportunity to partake […]


The Journey to Roma

The Journey to Roma

January 17th, 2015

This trip has certainly been a long time coming.  I’ve been dreaming of the day I would have the opportunity to study abroad in college for what seems like forever. And Loyola’s John Felice Rome Center was a huge factor in my choice to come here. But now my dreams are a reality and I get […]


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 […]


Beginning The Study Abroad Process

October 24th, 2012

One of the great things about Loyola is that they really encourage their students to study abroad. And many students do! Loyola makes it really easy to study abroad by providing a ton of information on their website and offering a lot of different study abroad options. We even have a campus in Rome, Italy […]


Traveling & Study Abroad

Traveling & Study Abroad

October 5th, 2012

So for the past month, I have spent A LOT of time on the road and living out of a suitcase for fall travel, recruitment to various high schools and college fairs around Indiana & Illinois. This has led to quite a bit of reminiscing over my study abroad experience while I was a junior at Loyola University […]


Easter in Rome

Easter in Rome

April 18th, 2012

Celebrating Easter in the world capital of Catholicism was definitely something I can check off my bucket list.  Loyola had a bunch of tickets to go to St. Peter’s Basilica on Easter Sunday.  It was mass… with the pope!! Luckily, Father Al (one of the priests here at John Felice Rome Center) was generous enough […]


Awaiting My Family

Awaiting My Family

April 3rd, 2012

This upcoming Easter weekend, my mom, dad, brother and sister are all headed over to Rome to visit me! I’m currently making a list of places for us to go/eat/sight see.  They’re coming for a week, and are hoping to make it to all Rome’s main attractions: The Colosseum, The Roman Forum, The Trevi Fountain […]


One More Month

One More Month

March 28th, 2012

While looking at my calendar, I saw that I had marked on this day, March 28th, “One month to go :(”.  I can’t believe I only have one month left here in Rome! Time has flown by and I have enjoyed every single minute of my time exploring Europe. I will be very sad to […]


Mini Care Package From Home to Rome

March 13th, 2012

I’ve been obsessively checking my mailbox for the past few weeks, since I knew a little package was coming for me from home.  Before I left for Italy, I ordered a few necessities online, and of course with my luck, they got to the States the day after I leave! So my lovely mother sent […]
