At UD, dreams of Rome become reality: classes held in the Colosseum and other ancient sites of legend and history; the Vatican a short bus ride away; a rural villa to call home; and your life forever transformed.
“In teaching in Rome I desire to live and think with my family and students the festive joy of the communion-of-beings and human existence. This is to say, that despite the real reality of sin and the tragedy of human existence, which cannot be ignored in our world today, the loving gift of God’s creation is still good, indeed ‘very good’ (Genesis 1:31). The Rome experience should thus be a time for all of us to discover and recover the joy, love and festivity of being and existence. And there is no better place to do this than the Eternal City.”
“The University of Dallas is providing an opportunity for ministers to be fed, so that we can in turn feed others.”
During this semester’s trip to Greece, UD’s Romers toured the ruins of one of history’s most famous military engagements — the Battle of Marathon — dating back to 490 B.C. The trip marked the first visit to Marathon in decades for the Rome Program. “Our visit there was long overdue,” said Peter Hatlie, vice president, dean, director, and professor of classics on the Rome campus.
