The Roman Rediscovery

While people often say that studying abroad is a life changing experience, before going you don't fully understand what they mean. However, my study in Rome, Italy completely changed my future, and has made me a far better person. The daily classes immersing you in the many cultures in Rome showed you different perspectives that you would not encounter upon a short visit to a place. For example, the volunteer opportunities with the poor in the city, allows you to recognize the amazing blessings in your life, and it helps you to understand why giving back is so important. Also, the travel to other cities with your class teaches you about the culture of areas far beyond Rome, and expands your thinking to those of so many different cultures. Finally, the Fridays off and the week long study break allow for time to travel on your own, and to make memories that will last a lifetime with other Americans, Italians, and many other European natives. While study abroad programs are all beneficial, Arcadia in Rome really opened my eyes to so many things, and for that I am forever greatful.

How can this program be improved?
The separation of students in housing can be quite annoying when you want to hang out with friends who are at least a 15 minute walk away from you.

Arcadia in Rome Review

The Arcadia in Rome program was an unbelievable experience for me. The classes were incredible, with classes both in and outside of the classroom, as well as field studies to different parts of Italy. The staff in Rome was great. They helped with whatever you needed and were always there to lend a helping hand. Of course, you cannot forget that you are in the Eternal City of Rome either. The people, scenery, and food of Rome is second to none.

How can this program be improved?
The only thing I would touch on is the transportation in Rome.

Great Experience!

Classes were great, professors were cool and very knowledgeable. The best part was having class walking around the city. Apartments were perfect. Orientation and class field trips were well planned and educational.

How can this program be improved?
I can't think of anything I could recommend they do better. Good amount of faculty involvement and independence. It was a little bit of a shock to be dropped off in Garbatella, which felt like the outskirts, but it was not. Maybe a little more in depth help with the bus system.
