Date Published: Jan. 22, 2017

ArrivalOur Spring 2017 Romers arrived on January 22nd and were greeted in Fiumicino Airport by Resident Coordinators Ivanna Bond and Keelin des Rosiers, Assistant Dean Ryan Reedy and two Student Assistants. The students were shuttled by bus to the Due Santi campus and arrived jet-lagged but ecstatic at the first sight of their new home! The students settled in, explored the campus grounds, enjoyed their first buffet lunch in the “Mensa” (cafeteria) and began orientation including a tour of campus and introductions to their professors.

In the evening, the students were invited to the celebration of the Mass and an Opening Convocation held on campus in the Aula Magna (large classroom), where they were offered words of wisdom from Dr. Peter Hatlie, Director of the Rome Campus, Msgr. Fucinaro, Rome Campus Chaplain, and Assistant Dean Ryan Reedy. The Rome staff welcomed the students with insights on what they will encounter in their Rome semester, and invited them to take full advantage of what the semester has to offer, in particular regarding academic and intellectual development, spiritual growth, and cultural immersion. After Convocation, students enjoyed a multi-course Italian meal prepared by the Italian kitchen staff. And then it was off to bed in preparation for an early morning the following day!
