Come with me as I take you on a pizza and gelato crawl through center city Rome. As one of the CEA cultural engagement activities, students were guided on a walking night tour of the city and enjoyed different kinds of Roman and Italian-style pizza. Dinner was followed by everyone’s favorite sweet dessert: gelato!   Juliana is the Spring 2018 CEA MOJO Blogger in Rome, Italy.

As my time abroad in Seville comes to a close, I’d like to reflect on my experience. I am so fortunate to have been able to study abroad in Seville. I loved the cities I’ve visited, but each time I return to Seville, I’m overjoyed to be home. This past weekend, my friends and I went to Barcelona and couldn’t stop talking about how people from our hostel were going to visit only Barcelona when in Spain. I loved La Sagrada Família and Park Güell, but I didn’t…

Declaring as a Communications and Writing double major means I’m always looking for stories to tell. Whether I tell them visually through photography or eloquently write them, I’m always a storyteller. Rome is filled with stories just waiting to be told. If the buildings and ruins could speak, they would tell the great stories of Ancient Rome. The cobblestone streets have felt the feet of thousands before you. As an artist myself, Rome is such a visually appealing city. A mixture of ancient and modern culture, the bustling…

Roma. The Eternal City. Studying abroad in Rome has been one of the most life-changing experiences. Rome is such an incredible city with so much to offer. It was incredible to walk in any direction and find something ancient or a museum filled with priceless artifacts and paintings.   Studying abroad and living in another country is hard. Everything is foreign, and it takes some time to adjust, especially if there’s a language barrier. I personally learned a lot about myself during that adjustment period, and I truly…

Enjoy this video as I take you on a walk through the heart of Rome! From the Colosseum and Piazza Navona to the Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon. Wander the cobblestone streets with me and get a taste of the city life and Italian sunshine. And don’t forget, when in Rome, do as the Romans do!

A little while back I posted a blog about climbing up St. Peter’s Dome. My words and few pictures could not do justice to how breathtaking the walk is. I went up St. Peter’s Dome once again to film for this video. I hope this does St. Peter’s more justice! Enjoy! Have any questions or comments?

Now that I have returned from my study abroad, I have been getting a lot of questions about the experience. Sometimes, the questions can be very repetitive. I figured the best way for me to share all of the basic and best information is in a blog post. Keep reading for some of my highlights! Which Program Did You Choose? CEA Rome: Theology and Religious Studies What Classes Did You Take? Italian (occasional class trips) History and Theology of the Papacy (always in-class) New Testament in the Eternal…

So you’re interested in studying abroad in Rome. That’s awesome! I’m sure a bunch of questions are going through your head like: “What are classes like?” “Will I be stuck in a classroom for all of my classes?” “Will we go on any field trips?” etc. Well, I put together this video from my study abroad experience to give you a taste of just how fun classes can be abroad!

You might not know that Florence is the center of the art world. It holds some of the most famous art works in all of history. It is considered the birthplace of the Renaissance. Why would an art major choose any other city in Italy but Florence? For me, it is not just about being surrounded by the famous artwork, but how the Florentine people treat me. Florentines follow their passion when it comes to their careers. They embrace what they love to do and do it for the…

I encourage anyone who reads this to travel solo at least one time in Europe while you are here. It changes everything. I traveled alone twice while being abroad. I went to Paris and Lake Como. Both experiences were different, yet brought me closer to loving and discovering myself. It is very intimidating and scary to spend a whole weekend alone with just yourself. The motto I told myself while traveling alone was: “I am alone, but I don’t feel lonely”. Then it hit me, I did not…
