Parent Week In Rome

Nov. 23-25: Parent Week in Rome

As a parent of one of our fall 2014 Romers youve likely taken a moment or two to daydream about a trip to Europe yourself. There has never been a better time to make that a reality by packing a couple suitcases and grabbing your passport to join President Thomas Keefe for Parent Week on UDs Eugene Constantin Campus from November 23-25. Not only will you have an opportunity to celebrate Thanksgiving by sharing meals, stories and adventures, but youll get a glimpse of the Rome experience that has made our program one of the nations most popular.

Being an ocean away from your student can be difficult, but we promise that they are in the best of hands. We would love for you to share that confidence in person! We hope you will be able to join President Keefe and other fall Romer parents during this special trip. Learn more by completing the form to the right.


"The Rome Program is an invaluable part of the UD curriculum. It is socially, spiritually, culturally and academically life-changing; the high light of my college career."
