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.

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!

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?

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! Enjoy! Olivia Ferri is the Fall 2017 CEA MOJO Photographer in Rome, Italy. She is currently a Junior…

Rome is a beautiful city with sites to see around every corner. Before I left, everyone loved to tell me that I could live in Rome my entire life and still not see everything. I finally believe them. In an effort to see as much of Rome as I could (and to maybe catch a sneaky glimpse of the Pope walking in the gardens), I decided I would take the trek up to the top of St. Peter’s Basilica. After paying my 6 euro to get in, I…

After years of dreaming, months of planning, and days of traveling, it is difficult to really describe how amazing it is to be here in Rome. So what brought me to Rome? I always knew I wanted to study abroad. My mom studied in Reims, France for an entire year in college while she pursued her French minor and had an absolutely amazing experience. Last summer, we traveled throughout Europe and actually had the opportunity to return to Reims. My mom’s old roommate from study abroad still lives…

One of the most common things that students say when they come back from studying abroad is, “ I changed so much!”. Too often this can be seen negatively because while you feel like you have changed, it seems like everything back home stayed exactly the same. That can be a little disconcerting when you were used to running around the streets of Paris at 2 o/cock in the morning then come back and instead are sitting in a library room until 2 o’clock in the morning. This…

Almost exactly 4 months ago I was about to come back home to the States and I was NOT excited about it. Just like most people, I loved my study abroad, and I had been gone for almost a full year, I could barely remember what life back home was supposed to be like. I had made wonderful new friends and had a lot of new adventures, I didn’t want to go back to where none of these things were. This is why I decided to be an…
