Scavenger Hunt & Dinner in Castelli

Scavenger Hunt & Dinner in Castelli

Date Published: Jan. 26, 2017

Half-way through a very busy week of orientation, the students participated in their very first Student Activity event; and right in the heart of Rome! Tired out by appointments to the Post Office to complete immigration paperwork and other aspects of orientation, Wednesday brought the students a bit of a break and gave them another opportunity to enjoy the city of Rome. Throughout the morning, the Student Life staff showed students how to reach the city via public transportation on the infamous “CoTral” bus and the metro. Later in the afternoon staff and students met at St. John Lateran Basilica to begin a Scavenger Hunt! The students had signed up for teams earlier in the week, and some had even planned out some strategic routes to best check off of the most sites from a long and challenging list. Each group had only two hours to find as many things as they could, taking a photo of their group holding a “Siamo Qui” (We are here) sign in front of each location, person, or item. After the Scavenger Hunt finished, the class was taken to Lake Albano, a volcanic crater lake near campus, for dinner at Ristorante Da Agnese. Students enjoyed a great meal of roast pork, grilled local vegetables, buffalo mozzarella, local olives, rustic sausages and cheeses, pizza, and a choice of Italian desserts, the favorite of the students being tiramisu!
